Know More about this tour

Located a few kilometers from the union of the Iguassu and Paran River, the waterfalls will take your breath away with their size and strength. You will enjoy a panoramic helicopter flight. Thrilling, informative, this helicopter flight gives a completely different and unique perspective of the spectacular waterfalls.
Ecological trails, canyons, wild animals and a spectacular view. Iguassu Falls are some of the things you will encounter during the Macuco safari excursion through the Iguassu National Park.
The adventure begins at the entrance to the Macuco Safari, located 25km (15.5mi) down Cataratas Highway inside Iguassu National Park. Board open jeep-towed wagons that allow for an unobstructed view of the scenery along the trail. During the 3km (1.8mi) stretch of the jungle, multi-lingual guides will point out flora and fauna in the Park. Orchids, palm trees, bromeliads, centenarian trees, and even wild animals that occasionally cross the trail are pointed out by the guides.
The hike is the second stage of your journey. On a stretch of 600m (1968ft), is a hike on a trail that leads to a waterfall called Macuco Falls (optional). The waterfall is perfect for a refreshing dip on hot days and spills down from a height of approximately 20m (65ft). Access is via a stairway carved into the ancient rock.
The last stop is the Macuco Safari docks on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu River. In the water, inflatable bi-motor boats await you. They are constructed to withstand the rigors of the excursion, as well as be secure and efficient vessels. Before embarkation, passengers receive life-vests and plastic containers in which to protect photographic and filming equipment. The boat travels up-river passing the canyon facing the rapids at a speed that allows for scenic viewing. Rainbows, blue sky, mist and water in abundance, punctuate the spectacle whose high-point is the The Three Musketeers. Here the captain maneuvers the boat in order to get close enough to provide the passengers with a quick and refreshing shower.
The bird park is conveniently located at the entrance of the Iguassu National Park, and fully integrated into its natural surroundings. Mingle with and photograph hundreds of different native and exotic birds, reptiles, caimans, marmosets and butterflies in spacious walk-through aviaries and trails that wind through the jungle.

    Gray Line Brazil is the best! They took care of me during my tour of the Brazil side of the falls. After my tour of the Argentina side booked with C2Rio was cancelled, I called Gray Line and they went out of their way to give me a private tour of the Argentina side. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and take care of everything! I highly recommend them for any tour they offer!

    Good way to see as much as possible of the falls if you have just one day. Bring a full Set of changing cloths - the boat experience in the end is really wet :o)

    Íncrivel!!! Parque bem estruturado, tudo muito limpo. Foi emocionante contemplar as cataratas. Eu não fiz o passeio do Macuco, fiquei com medo... meus colegas de trabalho fizeram e amaram. Quem sabe na próxima eu crio coragem.

    You need to visit this place before you die! It is really amazing to see all those waterfalls, the rainbows! Try to visit both sides, from Brazil and from Argentina! Need to have a good shape, you will walk a lot! Você precisa visitar este lugar antes de morrer! E realmente surpreendente ver todas aquelas cataratas e o arco iris! Tente visitar tanto o lado brasileiro quanto o Argentino, precisa ter um bom preparo, você vai caminhar muito.

    Fizemos os três passeios do parque. A vista das cataratas é impressionante, gostei mais do que a do lado Argentino. Recomendo. Na trilha não recomendo carrinho de bebê, mas deve haver algum acesso para cadeirantes e pessoas com mobilidade reduzida. Recomendo o passeio. Acesso organizado, ônibus não demora muito para levar para próximo das trilhas. Somente faltam opções para comer no local.

    Buen hotel, cómodo, con personal muy amable, instalaciones comodísimas, comida rica y se encuentra muy bien localizado ya que está cerca tanto para visitar las cataratas del lado brasileño como del lado argentino.

    Natureza deslumbrante, lugar perfeito, bem estruturado, mesmo com quedas d'água imensas, não oferece risco, desde que obedeçam as normas impostas.

    Sempre que posso eu e minha família voltamos. E sempre com a mesma emoção e contemplação da primeira vez. Super recomendo
