Iguazu Expedition is a new tour company offering offroad expeditions to explore the jungles of Iguazu Falls using Land Rover Defenders. Iguazu Falls are one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Northern Argentine region of Misiones, but the amazing rainforest next to the falls is also worth exploring as it is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from the elusive jaguars to capybaras, toucans, a large range of butterflies, birds and lizards.
The daily tours offer a great way of seeing inside the jungle and its many different types of flora and fauna, before stopping for a traditional Argentine asado (barbecue) for lunch, in preparation for the challenge of some extreme offroad driving and then finishing the day by visiting a Guarani tribe in Misiones.

Best time to go:
Late November through to early May are the wettest months, making some areas extremely muddy, treacherous and even inaccessible. The weather grows progressively drier through April and May when the tropical hardwoods begin to bloom. We suggest the best time to visit is between May and early November before the wet season.
