Iguazu Falls during the Full Moon

Iguazu Falls during the Full Moon

Most backpackers either before their trip or while travelling South America have seen the photos of the Iguazu Falls during the day. But did you know that you can also visit during the nights when the moon is at its fullest?

Imagine the feeling as beneath the cover of darkness you hear the unforgettable sound of thousands of tonnes of water falling from a great height onto the rocks below. Picture the scene as the moonbeams outline the silky dance of the white-water which constantly cascades over the cliff-face and into the dark abyss, while you feel the spray on your face as if the water is leaving the proof of its existence before departing into the seemingly unknown.

Things you need to know if going

  • The Full Moon walks to view the falls are offered from the Argentine Side of the Falls and those staying on the Brazilian side need to make their way across the border to participate.
  • It is important to book ahead as the event is very popular and entrance is limited over the three days a month inwhich the Full Moon appears.
  • There are 3 sessions each of the nights which begin with a brief talk by park guides before you are chaperoned to the train which transports everyone to the Garanta del Diablo (The Devil's Throat) where you witness the falls in all its glowing glory.
  • For those who wish you can combine the night with a dinner at the park's restaurant.
  • Take insect repellent because during night fall the mosquitoes can make their presence known.
  • At the end of the train ride everyone takes off to be the first down the kilometre long walking platform before everyone else. This is definitely the least fun part of the night as everyone has to go single file and many are not patient enough to do so. But if you take your time you can try to enjoy what night offers the jungle during the full moon and what is at the end of the walkway is well worth this little annoyance.
  • Depending on the direction of the breeze, the spray may find itself heading in your direction which makes waterproofing your belongings necessary.
  • If weather is bad the night can be cancelled by the park officials.

Recently the Green Toad Bus received a request from a group who wanted us to help them organise their trip to the falls from the Brazil border city of Foz do Iguacu. We arranged their tickets in advanced which included the dinner, we also provided the return transfer from their accommodation across the border to teh Argentine national park. The photos on this page were sent into us by Maria Carla Landa who said she enjoyed the experience very much. 

Although we do not offer this activity as a regular trip on our website we are happy to help you organise your trip there if you will be in Puerto Iguazu or Foz do Iguacu around the period of the Full Moon. Just send us an email!
