Iguazú Jungle

| |

Iguazú Jungle tour operator offers excursions in Iguazu National Park, one of the most biologically-rich areas in Argentina, part of the famous forests of the Misiones province, and known in the scientific community as "Interior Alto Parana Atlantic Forest".

This protected area encompasses one of the world’s most opulent natural landscapes—Iguazu Falls. There are more than two kilometers of waterfalls over 70 meters high, a spectacular manifestation of one of the planet’s increasingly scarce resources—water.

The park was created in 1934, one of the first national parks in Argentina. In 1984, it was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In addition to its scenic beauty, it is habitat for endangered species such as our sub-species of jaguar (Panthera onca palustris). The park is a “natural school " where children and youth can learn about the countless relationships that exist between living things.

We conduct environmental impact assessments for our services and equipment operating in Iguazu National Park. Our tours have pre-set carrying capacities and schedules to help minimize any negative impacts on the Iguazu River and the jungle ecosystems. We constantly seek the latest technology in vehicle and boat motors to minimize pollution.

Our employees receive sustainability training, covering topics such as security, quality, and biodiversity conservation.

At Iguazu Jungle, we maintain close ties with the community by financially supporting students, sports professionals, and scientific research. We also attend special events and support relief during catastrophic events such as storms or floods. Our employees also work with local primary school students in a waste sorting and management project.

Our business policy promotes the growth and development of our local community—most of the marketing of our services is done by local tour operators, who benefit from a significant percentage of the profits.

Customer satisfaction is a cornerstone of our work. We have a strict security system and our own health care services. We offer a “contemplation tour” for visitors with physical limitations. Professional guides and employees with extensive knowledge of nature and the local culture accompany our visitors to offer a truly enriching experience.
