"Truly a Wonder of Nature".“Submerge yourself in nature, breathe deeply, and harmonize with the silver-plated rays of the moon that bath everything in sight and ignite the night. One of the most unique sights in the world, you have to experience it to understand its beauty.”Stroll under the light of the Full Moon and dine in the La Selva Restaurant An experience that more people fall in love with every time, each month waiting anxiously to embark on the Ecological Jungle Train to the Devil´s Throat. The light of the full moon accompanies you on the trip through the jungle; bathing everything in its presence and making them shine like drops of silver water in the Iguazu river. Strolling along the footpaths you will experience complete peace - and nearly complete silence - hearing only the sounds of the jungle and of the calm current running along the dark rocks. From whichever of the four stations you choose, and from twilight until well into the night time, the moon will surprise you with its changes in color as it reaches its fullness. A monthly phenomenon, the full moon inspires verses, prose, and serenades, it is welcomed by astrologers, revered by mystics, and waited for with great expectations by lovers of natural spectacles.The fascination that visitors feel about the nocturnal stroll is totally justified, as the experiences of the visit are inspiring to say the least; there are some who benefit from bathing in the moon’s rays for relaxation and meditation; others who look to the moon to renew their love; and there are always people who shed some tears simply from the significant emotions of appreciating the Devil´s Throat in a unique perspective under the full moon. On the balcony overlooking the falls only the overflowing water seems to move - time stops and words disappear - they become useless, and returning becomes difficult. Once you manage to leave the balcony, the ample moon again accompanies you on the walk to the Central Station, from which the group will go on to the Food Court and to the “La Selva” restaurant where each passenger will be invited to a complimentary cocktail.The walks also include an option to have dinner in the park, either before or after your stroll, in the La Selva Restaurant, located in the Park´s Food Court. Duration: 3:00 hrs (including dinner)

We have been very fortunate in that we stayed on the Argentine side of the Falls, within sight of them and we have also viewed them from the Brazilian side where we took a very memorable helicopter trip.

We saw the moon bow, and how special is that! The place was mystical because there are no other visitors expect the group from the Belmond hotel.

We did the first full moon walk around the 3 Feb full moon. We'd only just arrived in Puerto Iguazu so we hadn't even seen the falls in daylight at this point. We quickly and easily booked the trip at the tourist office at the bus station and an hour later we were off on the bus to the falls.... More

Reading the reviews and realising that we would be there at the full moon, we thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to do the Full Moon Walk, despite the fact that it was quite expensive at US$50 pp (ie double the price of the regular Park entry). The only way to organise tickets is direct with the National Park... More

The full moon walk should be a magical experience however it was not. The guides explained before the tour in both spanish and English that no flash photography is allowed, no torches/flashlights and all phones should be turned off. This is so that eyes can adjust to the moonlight and everyone can see the falls lit up by the moon.... More

The "full moon walk" can be pre-ordered on the website, in Spanish, but it doesn't tell you to enter the park and find the gift shop a couple of blocks down to actually pick up your tickets. Then, if you make a 7:45 PM reservation (first group) you can expect to wait until 8:15 PM to start walking, 8:30 PM... More

I was on the first tour of the night. Very more information, direction for the meeting point. Watched the moon rise at the meeting point, I was thinking it would have been at the Falls themselves. Yep pushing and rushing to get photos by the locals. Everyone has plenty of time. There are very limited lights on the path, but... More

I would like to express my disappointment that the Iguazu Falls full moon tours have been cancelled for June 2014. I understand that there was a rain event last fortnight which prevents access to the Garganta Del Diablo trail, which is not anyone's fault. However I am very angry that I was not notified of the cancellation. My wife and... More

This huge complex of waterfalls is at least a two day event. One side of the falls is in Brazil and it has the massive two-level fall and an elevator for the physically challenged to get down to the base of the falls. Lots of trails to follow and amazing. The Argentina side is even more fantastic. There are dozens... More
