Running at the Iguazu Falls definitely is something special. It’s worth noting that running at the Falls is basically only possible in the early morning hours and the late evenings and only if you are staying at Belmond Hotel das Cataratas.
Yet, if you do so, you’ll definitely enjoy the experience. In contrast to my other running guides, I’ll skip the detailed information and the map for the running guide this time as running at the Iguazu Falls is somewhat different.
You can just take a single path and do some detours from time to time. Basically, you can do your run at the Falls as individual as you like!
It’s worth noting that this guide features the Brazilian side of the Iguazu Falls.
These can be easily reached from Belmond Hotel das Cataratas in just a few steps.
Luckily, nobody was at the Falls the mornings I went running, which meant that I could take incredibly beautiful pictures and enjoy the views all to myself.
The noise of the Falls is also a great addition as it really makes you feel like you are running in a secluded natural paradise.
When running at the Iguazu Falls you’ll just need to fall in love with nature as you won’t see any other person in the early morning hours.
You can enjoy the greenery around the falls, the views of natural phenomenon and also the manmade foodbrides, which lead into the Falls.
While these are usually totally overcrowded, you’ve got the pleasure to enjoy those all to yourself when running at the Iguazu Falls in the morning or late evening.
I’ve mentioned in my hotel review of Belmond Hotel das Cataratas before that the location is the biggest selling point of the property. That’s especially true if you are such a fan of running as I am.
Running at the Iguazu Falls will be an experience you’ll enjoy from the start to end, every single minute. Be sure to not start to late in the morning, so you’ll have the pleasure to enjoy the incredible Iguazu Falls all to yourself.
The pictures in this guide don’t even do the run justice, even though they might already look gorgeous!
