  • It was very nice to do this trail! We bike but can be done walking or by Jeep (should not be so cool). Are six miles of trail, and then have a boat trip on the River, with the option of venturing into a kayak! Loved it!

  • This tour includes (1) 9 km trail to the shore of the Iguaçu River (straight line, very easy to do), that can be done walking, bicycle or car (they sell it's electric car, but when I went to was an ordinary car that was available, those well noisy to ward off any kind of fauna); When it arrives on the Bank you choose to meet the Casemate (building 10 meters high, where you can observe a river with good amount of fauna) (to go to Bunker's some 500 meters where a bridge); (2) boat trip on the river Iguazú (20 min) and (3) kayaking down the River (20-30 min); (4) after the river stage, a fast track back to the base (1, 2 km), by means of transport that you prefer. You can't say that the ride is ugly, it's a beautiful park with good kills, with luck of spotting birds and mammals and a beautiful and extensive river. But to do it you have to pay 278 reais and grace dies It is extremely expensive for what they offer ... Definitely and unfortunately do not recommend. About my experience: I chose to walk the six miles of track and I was lucky to go with a good group (family including kids) willing also. But the guide was always suggesting to people driving up to a moment that he managed to convince a few people in the group, on the grounds that he had a stretch of 1 km of climb (it wasn't even so much rise) and it would be "only". I could not go alone without the Guide, so I was forced to go by car.. Turns out the noisy car walked about a mile from until all bother with Barrett and we walk ... Anyway ... If you still choose to do the ride, be careful with this possibility.

  • As was with two children we decided to do the six miles of trail of Jeep. I think if we had gone on a bike would have been more interesting. Nice place. Broke up in the river. We walk by boat and kayak. But that's ... Very expensive!
