Get close to more 275 different waterfalls along 2.7km, and can see surges of water of up to 450,000 cubic feet per second during the rainy season.
Visit The Devil’s Throat, a U-shaped water fall some 82m/269ft high, 150m/490ft wide and 700m/2,300ft long waterfall.
Visit the Argentina side for an up close and interactive experience - go to the Brazilian side to get the panoramic photo.
Individual falls are up to 82m/269ft in height. The majority are about 64m/210ft.
Iguazu are second only to Victoria Falls in size - but many say Iguazu is more beautiful.
Spring (Sep-Nov) and Autumn (Mar-May) are great times to visit for water flow. Summer (Dec-Feb) is, too, but it is also warm.
The trip was great and we enjoyed the falls very much. Both of our guides were great also, very professional and helpful.
So thanks for your help in getting this tour organised.

Overall, we loved the trip and found your organisation to be excellent. We definitely appreciated your prompt help while we were travelling, and attention to details (like arranging the bottle of fizz for Steve’s birthday).
We would highly recommend you specifically, and your company more generally, to anyone thinking of a similar trip in the future. It was great that you recommended we get setup with WhatsApp to communicate with you and the local people - the few times we wanted on-the-ground advice, that was very effective and your quick replies greatly appreciated! Thanks so much Tom.
Iguazu: All excellent, including the guide. Having seen both sides, definitely recommend people doing that (seeing both sides over 1.5-2 days). The basic boat trip is expensive, but worth it – a distinct view of the falls.
Patagonia self-guided: Overall the whole Paine W thing was excellent, including the hikes, dorms, camping, food (packed lunches very good and dinners spectacularly good food; breakfasts bland :-).
Both days’ hikes wonderful and tough and worth coming to Chalten for (and we got lucky with weather). Very happy we went self-guided.
Martial glacier hike: The hike is *tough* - overall tougher than anything else in the trip as a whole (except perhaps one part of Fitz Roy in Chalten). But, as we survived it, we were very happy in the end!
Trekking tip: For all of the trekking, we’d strongly recommend that if people ever walk with poles, it is worth bringing them, and for some of it (particularly Ushuaia and Fitz Roy) it is a good idea even for people who don’t regularly use them.
Many people might not think it worth the hassle to bring their own (or rent once here), but we were very grateful to have ours (and saw a lot of people making do with sticks they found).

What better way to celebrate the biggest day of our life than going to the Galapagos Islands on honeymoon? Our travel expert Tom Shearman explains why this remote archipelago’s blend of adventure, romance and comfort make it the perfect place to visit after your wedding. He writes: “Freshly prepared cocktails on deck, under a moonlit sky, listening to the sound of the waves….or strolling a sandy beach as the sun sets into the Pacific after a lovely evening meal next to the sea…. These are just some of the romantic moments awaiting travellers who choose the Galapagos …
