Argentina Travel Posted on 04/04/2015

As one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, Iguazu Falls is a great place to visit for any type of traveler. With a large number of easily accessible walkways and viewpoints on both the Argentine and Brazilian sides of the falls, a few days in the jungle promises to be an incredible experience. However, for those travelers interested in seeing Iguazu Falls in a unique and exciting way, opting for an Iguazu Bike & Adventure tour is a great choice.

1. Iguazú Bike Tours

Iguazu bike & adventure tours are indeed a great way to discover these mighty falls. But what makes an Iguazu bike tour for starters, so special? Well for starters, going by bike through the area is a much less crowded alternative than walking the trails and walkways that the majority of visitors use. A bike tour gives visitors a great view of the national park and its surroundings while affording them an intimate experience with a naturalist guide. This guide specializes in teaching participants about the natural aspects of the Iguazu jungle, offering information and anecdotes that other visitors to Iguazu don’t have the chance to hear.
