Discover Iguazu

Overview

This tour is a suggested itinerary designed by our specialist team! Choose this itinerary or alter it to design your own Journey.

In Portuguese, it is ‘Iguaçu’; in Spanish it is ‘Iguazú’ – either way, the name conjures up spectacular images of vast amounts of water cascading through virgin rainforest. Fittingly for the meeting point of the two giants of South America, Argentina and Brazil, this waterfall system is one of superlatives: made up of 275 separate falls, with up to 1,500 cubic metres of water dropping every second, and situated in two UNESCO World Heritage-designated National Parks, it dwarfs Niagara Falls and is rivalled only by Victoria Falls statistically and visually. Undoubtedly, one of the must-see destinations in the World.

Note: For Australian passport holders a visa is required to visit the Brazilian side of the falls so please consider this when asking to include it in your itinerary.

Consider a trip from Iguacu into Paraguay to visit "New London", originally known as "New Australia". New London was a colony settled by 2000 people from Australia in 1893. Within New London there exists old Queenslander houses and the locals still eat a form of damper.

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.


5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
