When traveling to Iguazu falls a lot of our clients ask about taking or not the optional BIG ADVENTURE or GRAN AVENTURA BOAT.
Our recommendation is almost always YES TAKE IT and you wont regret it! but we would like also to share a little bit about what to expect so you can choose knowing a little bit more about it.
So here you have a full description and some photos from when we took it.
GRAN AVENTURA-BIG ADVENTURE -Optional add on excursion in IGUAZU falls * during Argentine side falls excursion*
Starting from our Operations Center or from the Visitor Center, you will enter the jungle through the narrow Yacaratiá Trail in units designed for this particular environment. Bilingual guides (Spanish and English) will help interpret your natural and cultural riches of the place. This 5 km vehicular route culminates in the jungle base Puerto Macuco. After descending 100 meters you will arrive at the dock where you can board the boats with which you will go 6 km up the lower Iguazú River canyon towards the waterfalls area enjoying the fast rapids. We will take you to the base of Salto Tres Mosqueteros, where you will see the group of Brazilian and Argentine jumps, with the Garganta del Diablo crowning the view of the canyon. Later, you will reach the maximum point of excitement when facing the incomparable Salto San Martin, second in dimension and the largest that a boat can approach. Finally, we will disembark at the dock located in front of the San Martín Island, from where you will be able to return to the footbridge system through the Lower Circuit. The Great Adventure can be done in the opposite direction. That is, from the dock located in front of San Martin Island to the Visitor Center. FOR THE GREAT ADVENTURE AND NAUTICAL ADVENTURE SERVICES IT IS OBLIGATORY TO PRESENT THE DOCUMENTATION THAT ACCREDITED THE MINIMUM AGE FOR BOARDING (12 YEARS OLD). We provide bags to protect your personal items during the ride. We do not provide rain layers.
