Extensions - Iguazu Falls: The Spectacular Natural Wonder
In the northeast of Argentina, the Iguazu River joins the Parana River to create a natural border with Brazil and Paraguay. It is here that the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, the ‘Cataratas del Iguazu’ plunge into a gorge of over 275 falls along 3kms with an average height of 70 metres. Higher than Niagara Falls and wider than Victoria Falls, Iguazu are more beautiful than any photograph can capture. The majority of the falls lie in the Argentinian side, giving you the best perspective, whilst the Brazilian side offers grand panoramic views. (Note: A Brazilian visa is required to travel to the Brazilian side of the falls for Australian passport holders. Please check with your local consulate for other nationalities).
