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.
