Pre-Voyage Land and Sea Packages

Begin your South American adventure at the awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world. Spanning the international border between Argentina and Brazil, this New 7 Wonders of Nature and UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-experience for any explorer. And we’ll take you there on a four-night expedition that includes a guided tour through the 275 falls and a subtropical rainforest home to over 2,000 species of flora, 400 species of birds, and 80 types of mammals. You’ll also board the train to Devil’s Throat, and get up close to the falls during an exhilarating boat ride. Go deep in the heart of the Yriapu rainforest to the village of Jasy Pora Guarani. Learn about indigenous wildlife and self-sustainability from tribe elders, lunch with local families, and listen to a very special children’s choir presentation. Then cap off your explorations with a second experience at the waterfalls—this time from the distinct Brazilian perspective at Iguazu Falls National Park—before returning to Buenos Aires to begin the next leg of your journey.
