Hike to the Upper River Iguazu
Allow yourself to be awe-inspired by themost impressive cascade of the Iguazú Falls, with a total drop spanning 84m. Walk a little over a kilometre on the boardwalks that cross the Upper River Iguazú, appreciating the jungle scenery. Enjoy bird watching - there are many swifts in the early morning and at sunset before they return to their nests behind the waterfall.
Upper & Lower Circuits
Admire the views from above and below the San Martín, Bossetti and Dos Hermanas waterfalls, each set in lush vegetation. We recommend heading out early from the hotel in order to enjoy these circuits before the crowds arrive, taking a gentle stroll along 3.5 km of walkways.
A first approach with the Atlantic forest and its fauna in one of the least visited circuits of the Iguazú National Park. With a total distance of 7km, this walk allows visitors to discover the wilder side of this popular park at their own pace. A smaller waterfall of 20 meters, the Salto Arrechea, and the natural pool that forms at its feet mark the end of the way.
Learn about the history of Puerto Iguazú, visiting the port where tree trunks, and yerba mate grown
in the jungle, were historically shipped out. Take a boat ride to the confluence of the Rivers Iguazú
and Paraná, serving as a border for three countries - Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay – and the point of
origin of the Iguazú Falls, according to geologists
MBYA Guarani Settlement
For those interested in culture, this excursion gives you an insight into the life, customs and traditions
of the Guaraní villagers, the original inhabitants of these lands, guardians of the Iguazú Falls. Experience this melting pot of cultures, enjoying the unique experience of being guided by locals, who will reveal the hunting traps they use to catch food, their traditional medicinal plants and the artisan crafts they make from materials found in the jungle.
Excursion to Alto Parana
At the point where the jungle meets with the Urugua-í Creek, the most unusual geological formations are found, with semiprecious stones encrusted in the rocks. Archaeologists believe this was the home of the pre-Guaraní civilisations as the area provides ready available food and shelter. Float along the
waters of the Paraná, either in kayak or by boat, finishing with a refreshing swim in the waters below the hidden Yasí Waterfall.
Excursion to Yacu-i Reserve
Discover into the region’s best-preserved area of jungle, crossing through the Iguazú National Park on the beautiful National Road No. 101, until you reach the Awasi Yacu-í Reserve. Here you will see extremely rare species, such as Rosewood Trees (Palo Rosa), Palm Heart Trees (Palmeras Palmito) and primitive tree ferns. At the Yacuí creek, guests can take out kayaks or simply enjoy a moment of rest and contemplation on the shore.
Enjoy first-hand contact with nature, diving into the pure waters at the foot of the pristine and secluded Enchanted (Encantado) Waterfall. At sunset, on your way back to the lodge, it is worth
a stop at the Uruzú Ranger Station in order to try, with a little luck, to spot mammals at the salt lick (a place where naturally occurring salt deposits are found in the ground).
Uruzu Ranger Station
This route takes us to the Urugua-í Provincial Park, an area of excellently preserved jungle, globally recognised for its biodiversity. The extensive trails are ideal for those who love bird watching. A salt lick offers the chance, with a little luck, to view some mammals.
Excursion to the Jesuit Missionary Ruins of San Ignacio Mini, Nuestra Senora de Loreto and Santa Ana
If you are interested in history and culture, don’t think twice before opting for this excursion to the Jesuit Missionary Ruins. In the 17th and 18th centuries the Jesuits came to live and work with the Guaraní tribes. The three missionary settlements we are able to visit are all Unesco World Heritage
Sites, located 15 km from one another, each with unique characteristics making all three worth visiting.
Departs - Daily
Built on stilts for minimal environmental impact, the 14 villas will be
spread throughout the jungle, each positioned for utmost privacy but
within easy distance of the main lodge.
There will be 13 standard villas, and 1 master villa. Each
villa will have a private plunge pool, outdoor shower and spacious
living area. The master villa has two bedrooms, a larger plunge pool and living
room allowing plenty of space for two couples or families.
With the perfect mix of privacy in your villa, along with
the opportunity to socialise at the bar and restaurant in the main
lodge, Awasi Iguazú will be the perfect place to enjoy the very best of
the Misiónes Province.
