Iguazú Falls National Park, Aregentina

Iguazú Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage site hat protects some of the last wild sub-tropical Atlantic Rainforest in South America.

Our visit to the cascades in the forest was a fitting culmination to an expedition that took us Ushuaia across the Southern Ocean to the Falkland Islands (Malvinas), South Georgia Island, Orkney Island, and Antarctica.

Re-entry into the modern world after spending time in wild places is always challenging, so what better way to ease the stress is with a blissful visit to the more than 250 waterfalls found at Iguazú.

The images here were made on a two-day extension to Iguazú Falls National Park in Argentina with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic.
