Options

When you make your reservation, you can choose between two different options. Both include pick up and drop off in your hotel in Foz de Iguazú.

Wanda Mines

The tour meets in Foz do Iguaçu, travelling in a comfortable minibus to the Wanda mines, about 60 kilometres away, and an important source of semi-precious stones exploited by Polish miners. Quartz, amethyst, topaz and agates are some of the stunning stones you can see on the tour, used as raw materials in the town's unique jewelry. Not to be missed!

After exploring the mines, we will visit a local restaurant to eat, trying traditional Argentinian barbecue! Delicious! Then the tour returns to the starting point, putting an end to the excursion at approximately 12 midday.

Wanda Mines + San Ignacio Ruins

With this option, we'll first visit the Wanda mines, and having enjoyed all the attractions listed above, (except for the lunch) we will travel to the Ruins of San Ignacio Miní, in the Argentine province of Misiones.

First the tour makes a stop at the Jesuit ruins of San Ignacio de Miní, a complex said to be the best-preserved mission in Argentina.

Over the course of the day you will learn about the history of the Jesuit Roque González Santa Cruz, who founded his mission to evangelize the native population in the 17th century. And the movie buffs among you might remember a certain movie in which these ruins featured. You will have free time for lunch in the town of San Ignacio, then we'll return to the bus and get back on the road.

The tour ends back at the hotels of Foz do Iguaçu at about 8 pm.
