The park was created in 1934 with the main aim to protect the majestic Iguazu Falls.

The visit to the Iguazu National Park can be done via 3 circuits and on catwalks, best known as Lower Path, Higher Path and the Devil´s Throat Path. The Lower Path is a 1,200-metre-walk (0.8 miles) that gives a great view of the majority of the rapids and falls from a front and lower point of view. The distances range from a bird’s eye point of view of The Devil’s Throat together with several Brazilian rapids, to spectacular close-ups to other falls. This walk has some high difficulty level due to the number of steps along the way. (Approximate duration: 2 hours).

The Higher Path is a 1,300- metre-walk (0.9 miles) that will raise every visitor´s adrenaline level because of the vertigo of being at the edge of some waterfalls. This walk has breathtaking sceneries from a cliff-point outlook and this is the less effort demanding walk of the three traditional ones. No steps along the way. (Approximate duration: 1 hour). The Devil’s Throat has to be accessed via the Ecological Jungle Train, and everyone must get off at the stop named after this waterfall.
