Trip Extensions

Post-trip: Iguassu Falls, Argentina & Brazil

It’s easy to add thundering Iguassu Falls—twice as wide and 65 feet higher than Niagara Falls—to your explorations of the southern hemisphere’s natural wonders. On this extension, we’ll visit both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides of this astonishing array of 275 separate cascades and waterfalls. Enjoy spending time in this lush tropical environment as a vivid contrast to your Antarctic adventure.

It's Included:
Accommodations: for 1 night in Buenos Aires at the Superior First-Class Amerian Park Buenos Aires Hotel, and 2 nights in Iguassu, Argentina at the unrated Amerian Portal del Iguassu
5 meals: 3 breakfasts, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner
Included tours: Iguassu Falls Brazilian side, Iguassu Falls Argentinean side
Services of a resident Grand Circle Program Director

    In the afternoon, your Program Director accompanies you on a flight from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires, where you arrive in the early evening. You'll then transfer to your hotel. Dinner is on your own tonight.

    After breakfast, fly to Iguassu Falls. This afternoon, you enjoy breathtaking views of the falls from the Brazilian side. A stone path leads to several platforms with fine views from different angles. You get close enough to the thundering torrents to feel the spray, and you may glimpse the park’s resident coatis (raccoon-like animals.) Enjoy an included dinner at your hotel this evening.

    Today you witness sweeping views at the Argentinean side of the falls. Here, the falls can be approached, viewed, felt, and experienced from a number of angles. Along the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) walk, the water plunges 240 feet into a roiling cauldron. With the spray flying up to 50 feet above your head and rainbows dancing in it, the view here can only be described as breathtaking.

    Then, after an included lunch, you may enjoy an afternoon at leisure inside the national park on the Argentinean side of the falls, or join an optional Great Adventure tour. On this optional tour, you’ll discover both the lush vegetation and the rushing waterfalls of Iguassu National Park from multiple perspectives, beginning with a panoramic ride along the Sendero Yacaratía trail that winds through the verdant jungle to the riverside.
