Boat trips are, of course, the best option to get close to the icebergs and discover the fjords, rivers, lakes and unexplored coast lines. Possibilities range from cruising for several days to boat trips lasting a few hours.

Here I propose some examples of cruises and boat trips, though others are available.

Misiones - Mocona falls  
excursion argentine chili

| Starting point Iguazu.

| Duration 1 day.

| The Mocon Falls, which means "that swallows everything" in the guaran language, is one of the wonder of the province of Misiones, a geological fault where the rivers Uruguay, Yabot, Pepir Guaz, Serapio and Calixto meet, forming a three kilometer long canyon with falls of water parallel to its bank, different from a regular waterfall, which falls transversally, being up to 20 meters high, and 120 meters deep.

The area is considered a Provincial Park, and it includes the Yabot biosphere. It is located 340 km. away from Posadas, and 320 km. away from Iguaz. Unlike to what usually happens when the bends in the water meet the natural obstacles that they must cross, they erode them and form perpendicular falls to their courses; in this case the river runs parallel over the plateau of the hill all throughout the course and falls by the side

Borispatagonia

Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
