Fly to the town of Foz do Iguaçu, the gateway to the most impressive waterfalls in the world, where upon arrival you will be met at the airport by an English speaking driver and taken to your chosen hotel.

Hotel Das Cataratas Hotel Das Cataratas

The only hotel located within the Brazilian side of Iguassu National Park, Belmond Hotel das Cataratas enjoys an unrivalled location just a short stroll from the sensational Iguassu waterfalls. Guests enjoy exclusive access to this magnificent sight in the evening and at dawn, when the park is closed to other visitors. The hotel is a beautiful example of a Portuguese-colonial residence, surrounded by tropical gardens. The hotels offers a day spa, swimming pool, tennis court as well as two fabulous restaurants and bar. There are four room styles available ranging from superior rooms, deluxe rooms (including some with a view of the falls), junior suites through to the wonderful Cataratas Suites. All rooms are wonderfully designed with unique touches with the suites being particularly impressive.

Day 2 Iguassu Falls

Today you will be met by your private guide and head to the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. Within the park on the Brazilian side is approximately a mile of boardwalks which snake through the trees and allow you to get close up to the full force of the waterfalls and also see an abundance of wildlife such as coatis or toucans. The tour ends on the upper part of the falls which are reached by a panoramic elevator before you return to your hotel.

Day 3 Iguassu Falls

After breakfast you will again be met by your guide for a private tour of the falls from the Argentinean side which offers a completely different view of the falls. Once in the national park there are two ecological trains which are perfect to take you around the parks attractions taking you eventually to the Devils Throat Station for the best view of Iguassu Falls.

If you really want to get close to the falls then board the La Gran Aventura boat and get to the base of the falls and feel their incredible force.

Days 4 – 9 Florianopolis

This morning you will be transferred back to Foz do Iguacu airport where you will board a flight to the island of Florianopolis, just off the Santa Catarina coastline. On arrival you will be transferred to your chosen hotel and an English speaking driver and spend the next 6 days relaxing and enjoying all that the southern coast has to offer. If the season is right then it’s a great place for whale watching.
