Natural Heritage of Humanity and one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, visiting the Iguaçu Falls is an experience of immersion in nature, through a walk on trails in the middle of the forest and the imminent proximity of the immensity of the waterfalls of the Iguaçu River .

To make our experience in this Premium Workshop even more complete, the 5 star Belmond Hotel das Cataratas will be our home during the weekend of the event. Iguaçu Falls is one of the most visited places in Brazil, so it's inevitable to have a lot of people there. But this is not a problem for guests at the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas, which offers its guests the possibility to enjoy the Iguaçu Falls at exclusive times since it is inside the park. The park is open to visitors from 9 am to 5 pm hours. Outside these hours, hotel guests have the privilege of strolling along the empty trails and calmly admiring the main points.

In this Premium Workshop, the photographerVictor Lima will reveal the secrets for capturing images of nature and landscape, during the day and also during the night, when the cloud of the Milky Way will be walking through the skies of the Iguaçu Falls.
