Great views, hikes and wildlife
Travellers can explore the falls in different ways and can also visit both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Both sides are different. The Brazilian side has less infrastructure and perhaps fewer visitors, but equally worth visiting. It is near Parque das Aves, one of the best bird sanctuaries in South America. Both sides are great for hiking and boat safaris. We also suggest spending at least two days of your holidays in Argentina exploring this spectacular natural wonder.
On the Argentinean side, you reach the falls by train, crossing the jungle and suddenly emerges at the top of the waterfalls. From here, you have the option to hike on the higher and lower levels of the falls. The walkways all lead to the Garganta del Diablo (the Devil’s Throat), an immense crescent where various river branches converge, creating a spray-whipped concertina of 14 waterfalls. It looks like a smoking volcano. You can take a boat trip to see the falls from the base.
