This cost for this 9KM hike / bike or electric car ride is R$260 in addition to the entrance fee to the national park. Seriously?

You must carry cash to pay for access to the track and the guide. You will cross the trail on foot or by bike or electric car (if it has rained the day before). You will then take a boat to navigate the Iguaçu River. Then complete the journey by kayak. Finally, it will cover a few more meters walking... More

nothing special but our guide was nice and accommodating. We could take the jeep or ride our bikes, kayaking was optional and at the end, we could either walk or take the jeep back.

I bought the ticket for this optional tour at the tour office beside the ticket offices for the first tour of the day which was supposed to start at 9:30am. Took the bus and arrived at the Poco Preto stop and had to wait for quite a while for various groups to arrive, so it was well past 10am before... More

I was so exciting when I saw the brochure of this trail: walking, biking, boat riding, kayak... everything sounded awesome!! We were a group of about 20 people: first walk went well. Arriving to the bike stand, only 10 were there...We had to wait about 20 minutes to have all the bikes, and all were in despicable conditions: we had... More

If you're not a bilogist supported by an project, there are very few options to see Iguacu National park other than the trails around the falls. This trail is one great exception. Contrary to secveral misguided reviews here this is an excellent trail for butterfiles, birds and mammals - Ozelot among others - at least in Oct/Nov. I had two... More

My experience was very different from what other reviewers are saying, so perhaps it depends on your tour guide. Mine was very knowledgeable about animals as well as local history. We saw agouti and an alligator, and I learned a lot about the native plants. The hike itself is simply a hike through the woods (I was given a choice... More

The travel agent sitting at our hotel was quite uninformed and rude. We asked her if this trail will take us to the island with parrots and she said yes. We did not book it due to her rude attitiude when we questioned her about timings. It turned out fine in the end for us as we did not waste... More

This was an awful experience. First they lie to you and tell you that you can switch from bike to truck at any time. You start with a 600m walk with no commentary. Then you switch to bikes for a 9km ride. The bike trail is awful. There are ruts and sand patches everywhere, so you can't get up to... More
