Detailed Itinerary

Transfer from IGU airport + Visit to the BR Falls with Macuco boat ride. Welcome to Foz! Meet your guide at the arrival area and embark on a private transfer to your hotel. After check-in, you will visit the Brazilian side of the fall. The trip begins at the IGUASSU National Park in Brazil. En route to the falls, we will drive through the lush, subtropical vegetation of the park. After arrival, we will take a descending trail of the canyon, from where we can enjoy panoramic views of more than 240 falls. We will board a glass elevator, which takes us to a platform were more exquisite views will be revealed. Along with its “sister” park in Argentina, The Iguassu National Park forms the most significant remaining rainforest in the southern cone of South America, which along with the waterfalls have been declared a National Heritage Site by UNESCO. For passengers staying at Hotel Das Cataratas, the tour departs from the hotel. We will end the tour with a visit to the artisans fair. The big adventure begins at the Macuco Safari entrance gates, located at kilometre 25 on the Cataratas Highway, inside the Iguassu National Park. We will embark in open jeep-towed wagons permitting a free view of the scenery along the trail. During the three kilometres stretch through the jungle, multilingual guides point out and explain the flora and fauna of the Park. Second stage of the tour is an optional hike of 600 meters, which leads us to the waterfall baptized Macuco Falls. The Macuco Falls, perfect for a refreshing dip on days of intense heat, spill down from a height of approximately 20 meters. Access is via a stairway carved into an ancient rock.

The last stop is the Macuco Safari dock on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu River. In the water the inflatable bimotor boats are secure and efficient vessels, especially constructed to withstand the rigors of the excursion. Before embarking, passengers receive life-vests and plastic containers made to protect photographic and filming equipment. The boat travels up-river, passing the canyon, facing the rapids, at a speed permitting the appreciation of the scenery. Rocks, animals and a spectacular green landscape complete the scenery until we reach the great horseshoe known as the Devil’s Throat. To top the tour off, the pilot will give everyone a splash by navigating through the spray of one of the falls! We recommend that passengers bring a change of clothes, due to the constant spray from the falls, and to not bring anything that can get wet - lockers are available at the pier before boarding. Duration: approximately 5 hours.

Full Day Argentina Falls. Departure from the Hotel, Cross the Tancredo Neves Bridge with its lovely view of the Iguassu Canyon heading towards the IGUASSU National Park in Argentina. At the entrance, a small train takes visitors on a tour through the park, making 2 stops: upper and lower circuit. Follow the walkways to the top of the waterfalls that provide spectacularly unique views of the ‘Cataratas’, amidst the abundant nature filled with orchids, colourful birds and other wildlife. The highlight of the trip is a visit to the suspended platform at the very brink of the Devil’s Throat – largest of the waterfalls. Duration: approximately 7 hours.

At the scheduled time, meet your guide at the lobby for check-out assistance and embark on a private transfer to the airport to catch your next flight to Rio (not included). Transfer in followed by a Visit to Sugar Loaf Welcome to the Marvellous City. Meet your guide and embark for your first adventure: A visit to the Sugar Loaf - Over a million tourists every year visit the world famous Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain), which has become an iconic symbol of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Rising up from a small peninsula at the entrance of Guanabara Bay, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined sugar loaf. The first cable-car takes passengers to the top of Urca Hill, which rises 215 meters above sea level and offers spectacular views of the entire bay and its islands. From Urca Hill, passengers continue in a second cable car to the top of Sugarloaf which rises 395 meters above sea level and offers a 360 degree view of the entire city including Botafogo and Copacabana Beaches, Corcovado and downtown Rio.

Visit the Corcovado Mountain and the Samba city. Depart from the hotel to visit the Christ Statue, elected as one of the seven modern wonders of the world. The statue sits 2,300 ft. above sea level, atop Corcovado Mountain. Following a scenic drive along the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, we will arrive at the bottom, where we embark on a small train that climbs the beautiful mountainside. Upon reaching the top, visitors will experience a panoramic view of Rio de Janeiro and discover why it is known as the “Marvellous City”! A stop for lunch will be provided (meal not included). After lunch, we’ll head to the Samba City. Although Rio’s Carnival takes place just once a year, reparations for this iconic event happen almost daily throughout the year. This afternoon you will visit the Cidade do Samba, the warehouses which store the floats and costumes for each samba school.
