Rafting on the Iguassu River consists of going down by inflatable boats, a series of rapids for approximately 4 km, 2 km of faster rapids and 2 km of calmer waters where it is possible to swim in the river. You begin close the waterfalls with a magnificent view of the falls. The rapids are considered of medium level (class III+), suitable for people over 14 years of age.
