If you are the type of person who likes more alternative programs, full of adventure and nature, then check out the list and find tips not to miss unusual attractions, but very original and fun!
1. Knowing Iguassu Falls with Other Eyes
The suggestion here is to enjoy Iguassu Falls in a different way from the conventional one. For those who enjoy sports and nature, a great option is to enjoy the National Park through a walk, jog or bike ride.
Practicing a physical activity surrounded by the Atlantic Forest and the sound of the birds is incredible. Even more with the exuberant view of the Iguassu Falls at the end of the route.
It is 11 km from the entrance of the park to the first lookout point, where it is possible to make the trail overlooking the falls. Then, if you’re too tired to go back on foot, just hitch a ride with one of the visitor buses, which also has a place to carry bicycles.
