Brazil: Helicopter Trips
The world's largest country in the tropics
Perhaps the definitive way to view the magic of Brazil is by helicopter. Tours are readily available all over Brazil, but perhaps the best is those found around Iguaçu Falls. During this ten minute helicopter tour, visitors fly over the expansive Iguaçu National Park stretching into the distance as far as the eye can see. The great Iguaçu River slices through the rainforest below, and upon reaching the Igauzu Falls plunges over the waterfalls and disappears into the clouds of spray below. The helicopter will circle the Falls several times allowing you to marvel at the beauty of nature and to take some excellent photographs. Seeing this natural phenomenon from above is a truly breathtaking experience and will leave you with memories which last a lifetime. Longer helicopter trips of 35 minutes are also available which fly over not only the Iguaçu Falls, but also the Three Borders Landmark, where you can see the point where Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay meet, The Itaipu Dam, one of the largest hydroelectric power plants in the world and the city of Foz do Iguaçu.
