Argentina

Iguazu Falls

The mighty Iguazu Falls are awe-inspiring. Stretching over 3km and straddling both Argentina and Brazil, this popular national park is home to more than 250 waterfalls that form an awe-inspiring semi-circle of water. With 80% of the waterfalls on the Argentinian side, this is best for hiking trails and seeing wildlife. To truly appreciate the water’s power, take the 1km walkway over the Devil’s Throat, where an 80m drop lies below you.
