From San Carlos de Bariloche, I travelled by bus to Puerto Iguazu via Buenos Aires. A journey of more than 40m hours. Although it was a long journey, it did give me a great perspective of Argentina. The sheer size of the country, plus the variety of the ever changing landscape. I was also content as I was nearing the last destination on my current list of places to visit. Lucky me!!
Iguazu Falls is truly a “wonder of the world”.

Viewing point for the “Devil´s Throat”.
From the Devil´s Throat, I made my way to the next part of my trip, which was to be the “Eco Tour”. There were some distractions along the way.
Coati eating my cereal bar. (he/she stole it from me)
Inflatables for the Eco tour.
My good fortune continued as I was the only person to turn up for this particular boat ride. Too many people usually means, too much noise and as consequence, not much to see. Not so with just me and my guide/boatman on board.
After being tipped out of the raft on the rapids the day before, I was looking forward to a nice couple of hours kayaking on Lake Gutierrez. That is exactly what I got. There were just 5 people plus 2 experts. We were put into 2 man kayaks. I was with Marco, one of the trainers. Pablo, the other trainer, was in a one man kayak.
After a brief period of instruction, we set off.

It was a lovely, tranquil setting and we went at a gentle pace to enjoy the scenery. We also stopped for breakfast.

Instruction continues while we have breakfast.
Cool, clear water.
After breakfast, we returned to the starting point, at the same leisurely pace.

Back to base then for a photo call and for me I was off to get the bus to Iguazu Falls.
