Your helicopter adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. Upon arrival at the helipad, you'll be given a safety briefing and all necessary equipment. Then, jump in the helicopter, and your unforgettable Iguassu Falls flight will begin!
First, you'll fly over the Visitor's Center on the Brazilian side of the falls. Then, heading towards the national park, you'll be able to see the surrounding jungle expand deep into Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. You'll capture some great photos of the rivers flowing through what seems like never-ending forest!
You'll then make your way towards the falls and fly as close to them as possible. Watch from above as the 275 waterfalls pump water into the Iguassu River below. Enjoy the aerial views of both the Brazilian and Argentinian side of the falls, as well as Devil's Throat (the largest waterfall in the region), San Martin Island and San Martin Waterfall (the second largest). Your pilot will circle around the falls a few times to allow each passenger to shoot photos from every possible angle.

Another don't miss. A well run and organized tour. We loved this bids eye view of Iguassu Falls. Spectacular.
Stay away from this disaster. You can purchase the tour at Helisur at the Falls gate for 130 USD. Drive yourself there or cab it, don't pay over 200 USD for a car ride you may not get. this was a rip off at it's best. The helicopter ride is too short and you're lucky to get one good picture.
The best helicopter experience one can take part in and do for an excursion! This was simply awesome to see from up above and I loved every minute of it! You got to do this one if you go to The 7 Wonder of The World, it's a must by helicopter!
The helicopter , bird park and entry to Iguazu Falls Park are all within 200m of each other.
We had the helicopter transfer from hotel to the helicopter location included in our ticket price and this worked very well.
However be aware that the pick up drops you at the helicopter park and then you are issued with a number for your position in the queue to get into the helicopter. We were there early in the morning and not on a busy day so we had a short wait for our turn. I am not sure if this would always be the situation. The waiting area is air conditioned with a shop and small cafe.
the flight was about 10 minutes but that gave a couple of circles over the falls so that both sides of the helicopter had very good views of the falls.
Across the road is the Bird park.
The helicopter flight was amazing, it was an experience of the lifetime to see the mighty Iguassu Falls from high above. It really gives a totally different perspective of the falls. The people who came to pic us up were very nice and friendly, they drop us off to the entrance of the Brazilian side of the falls upon our request and showed us how to get back to the Argentinian side.
Such an awesome experience. You can see both sides of falls from the helicopter. Highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience.
I mean what can I say about this awesome event and tour. A helicopter ride above Iguassu Falls speaks for itself! I had some great pictures and truly had lifetime experience doing this particular tour. It's expensive for the time your in the air, but you will come out with some to die for pictures afterwards!
Thought the 10 minute helicoper ride would be 10 minutes over the falls. Not so, the 10 minutes included getting there and returning. Therefore we had about 2 or 3 minutes over the actual falls. Would I do this again NO NO NO
This trip lasted ten mins. but was great. I got a front row seat and had a great view of the falls. It is expensive but then how often will you do this in your life
My facebook pictures says it all! From a helicopter you get a breath taking view of the massive falls like no other!
I saw the falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides and this is a must see but the day was enhanced with the fact that we also got the chance to see the falls from the sky...AMAZING!
See the Iguazzu Falls from the air gives you a whole different perspective. What an amazing experience, thoroughly recommended. Only compliant, the flight is not long enough.
Great, great, great! A MUST when you arrive in this magic place!
After the helicopter Tour, you can choose to visit their Birds Park or take a walk in the National Park along the falls, both located at the same place.
Little minus, there is no drop off back to the hotel included. Arrive on the site with some cash as you will need to return on your own with a local taxi, which for that matter are totally overpriced!!!
There really is no reason to buy a ticket on-line because you will still have to go to the place and redeem it for an actual ticket. I bought the ticket for the next day and no one called or left a message at my hotel. At 10am on the day of the flight I got a call saying I needed to be at the park entrance at 10am! or I could reserve for 1pm and since it was at least a 15 minute drive to the gate (stayed at the Belmond) I said ok to the 1pm flight but I was told not to be late! It was a busy day at the helicopter place and we ended up standing in line for 45 minutes after we got the ticket (there was no such thing as an actual reservation so I don't know what the 1pm deadline was all about). I was also not aware that the helicopter place was right in front of the Iguazu gate entrance so the transportation that I paid extra for consisted of a van driving less than two blocks - after the helicopter ride I told the driver to not even bother picking me up (the driver btw was very friendly and professional). Also you should know that they don't fly when it is excessively cloudy or there is rain as visibility of the falls is poor. That means when the rains stop, there are lots of people waiting in line - I counted at least 50 people - and that means that you are kind of shuttled through like cattle. All this said the views are amazing and well worth doing - just not on-line.
An excellent tour - pilot ensured both sides of the aircraft were given viewing access to the falls scene by turning and flying back in the opposite direction on two occasions.
It was somehow expected but still absolutely thrilling experience. Hard to reccommend , which time of the day is the best, but prepare for some lines at the site anyway. After lift-off you will have 10 minutes with superb views. They try to sell you DVD after this whole thing, worth those dollars, as this contains more than just your own trip video. Try to get to first row- they prefer women, though:)
