Iguassu Falls, Brazil

Extension Image

FROM $1,099 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $366 PER DAY

Prior to your Antarctica polar exploration, visit another natural wonder with our optional pre-trip extension. Travel to spectacular Iguassu Falls National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 275 thundering falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina. Second in size only to Victoria Falls, this series of cataracts once prompted Eleanor Roosevelt to take pity on her country’s most famous falls, saying “Poor Niagara!” as she gazed upon mighty Iguassu. The falls are all impressive, but the most spectacular is the Devil’s Throat: the 2,300-foot-long spectacle separates Argentina and Brazil.

Your Price Includes:
  • Included flights: 1 domestic flight from Iguassu Falls to Buenos Aires
  • Accommodations: 2 nights near Iguassu Falls National Park at the First-Class Bourbon Cataratas Resort (or similar)
  • 4 meals: 2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 1 dinner
  • 2 sightseeing tours featuring both the Brazilian & Argentinean sides of the falls
  • All transportation while on tour
  • All transfers and baggage handling while overseas, beginning at our hotel
  • A regional expert to accompany you
