Running through both Brazil and Argentina, the Iguacu River is the source of the Iguacu Falls and creates a border between its two host countries. The falls plummet over a canyon edge creating an epic display of nature's power. A viewing deck allows you to walk out into the spray to witness the falls awesome effect.

The river runs through Iguacu National Park, where you can take a guided hike through a forest bursting with color. Alternatively, stay on the water with a boat tour on a calm section of river, or a take a more challenging ride through the rapids with an experienced guide.

  • The headwaters of the River are in the Sierra Do Mar, a few kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean and at a height, about 900 meters above the sea level. This River is responsible for feeding the falls and in addition to making of natural boundary between Argentina and Brazil

  • This River is huge and very important for the region, creating the tri-border around your (Brazil/Argentina/Paraguay). In crossing the bridge, you can visit the freeshop of Argentina and in the other, the bridge of friendship, the Paraguayan shopping.
