For a close-up view of spectacular Iguassu Falls during your South America adventure, join this special excursion that begins with an open trolley ride through the dense rainforest near the falls, during which you can observe flowers, birds, and butterflies. As you ride through the undergrowth, your jungle guides point out orchids, palm trees, bromeliads, and centenarian trees. Arriving at a stopping point, you’ll make your way down to the water’s edge. At the dock, we’ll board special speed boats make our way into the gorge, where falls thunder in from three sides. First, take the opportunity to snap some photos worthy of National Geographic magazine. Then, get ready to get wet! Your experienced river pilots, who know these waters intimately, will give you a thrilling ride through some rapids, guiding you right up next to the splashing cascades. This incredibly fun experience is not to be missed! (The speed boat operator will provide you with plastic bags to keep your camera and other valuables dry. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, casual clothes, and prepare to get soaked!) Afterwards, you will have a private transfer back to your hotel.
