Two recognized international group Hotels have arrived to Iguazú -one of the Seven Wonders of the World- , with an exclusive service and a spectacular location in the forest.


Until recently managed by the Hotel Sheraton, the Meliá Iguazu assumes the hotel in September, and in 2018 it will be completely renovated to update its facilities and attributes to the standards expected by the Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand. Hailed as the only hotel located in the heart of Iguazu National Park in Argentina, it is the only hotel with panoramic views of the famous "Devil's Throat". The hotel provides 169 rooms – including waterfall-view rooms - and a wide range of dining facilities, swimming pools, spa, gym, children's play areas and meeting and event rooms. It also has a Visitor Centre focused on the enhancement of the natural environment of Iguazu, and its customers can easily walk to the Falls.

Another renowned international brand is arriving: The Awasi Hotel is situated only 15 minutes walking distance from the world’s largest waterfalls and is set to open next February 5th 2018. Awasi Iguazú’s 14 private villas are located on the banks of the Iguazú River, sprinkled throughout the jungle canopy, and built on stilts for minimal environmental impact. Each room features a private plunge pool, outdoor shower, and spacious living area, accented by an expansive main lodge and restaurant. Awasi Iguazú will feature a private-guide system and excursions will include biologist-led journeys to the falls, sunset boat rides, and visits to archaeological sites in the area. The Iguazu Falls are 23 kilometres, and include more than 270 waterfalls that reach heights of 80 metres. They can be seen from Argentina or Brazil and the famous "Devil's Throat" defines the border between both countries.


Norwegian Airlines has already announced new routes to Buenos Aires from Gatwick Airport starting in February 2018.


From February 14 2018, Norwegian will start a year-round service of four direct flights a week from London Gatwick to Ezeiza International Airport, the main hub in Buenos Aires.

The flights will be operated on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, all on board brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, with economy and premium cabins available. Passengers will have to pay extra charges for other optional services such as baggages and meals.

The airline has received an approval for the permit which includes the use of the same aircraft across all long-haul routes including United States, Singapore, another European destinations and Argentina.

Thanks to this new route, Buenos Aires will become Norwegian’s eleventh's long-haul route from London Gatwick as part of a huge expansion from the UK into a range of new global markets.


The closure of the Upsala area involves all types of tourist navigations. This measure affects excursions through the area.

Unfortunately, Los Glaciares National Park have decided to close the Upsala Glacier area for realizing any navigation, in order preserve the safety of visitors after a landslide occurred a few years ago. Due to the incident generated a tsunami effect and there still is a huge potential risk of large avalanches, the activity will no longer be available until further notice.
However, there are other similar alternatives which allow travellers to enjoy their stay in El Calafate. El Chalten, a small town located 215 km distance from El Calafate, offers privileged sceneries for multiple alternatives on outdoor activities, including kayaking and rafting in River Las Vueltas. The River, as the name implies, descends into Lake Viedma making numerous turns through lush Lengas forests and vertical walls. From this privileged position in the kayak and over 20 miles, travellers are able to enjoy unique views of Fitz Roy and its needles satellites, which are completely different from what can be seen from a trail.
The rafting experience includes a descent in rafts for two hours and therefore to live the biggest adventure of Rafting. The circuit differs in two different zones according to its characteristics and landscapes. The first four kilometers have calm and quiet water with the Fitz Roy at your back, ideal to get in touch with the river and practice the techniques that are going to be used later. Afterwards, the boat goes over a deep ravine where travellers are able to enjoy a series of rapids for 8 Km. The end of the trip concludes with a final stretch to enjoy for 2 Km the calm water of River Las Vueltas. This is another rhythm to meet the Patagonia.
The measure to extend the restriction of the navigation area was adopted as a consequence of the accelerated regression of the Glacier, which generates a mass removal, being a natural and dynamic enviroment in constant change.
