During the tour “Iguazu Forest I”
we will experience a 3-hours Jeep
Safari (off-road) to a different place considering
its geographic characteristic and localization. We
will go within the Rainforest and National Park of
Iguazu, and the park is strictly controlled by Argentinean
officials to avoid its visitors abusing the nature.
The palce is only 7km from the town of Puerto Iguazú,
situated on the margin of river Rio Paraná.
The distance to world’s most extraordinary waterfall
is only 15km and it is here we find the region’s
most interesting area for Eco Tourism.
nature reserve is named the “green corridor”
and has an area of 15.000 hectares, involving three
national parks: In the West - Parque Nacional Iguazú
Argentina, In the Northeast - Parque Nacional Foz
do Iguaçu Brasil and in the North Parque Nacional
Moisés Bertoni do Paraguai. The visitors can
enjoy the plenitude of the Forest Selva Missioneira
and its “Eco Tourism” attractions: 2.000
species of plants, the richness of avifauna with more
than 400 species (i.e. Toucans, Boveros, Pássaros
Carpinteiros, Hummingbirds, Urracas and others.
The suggestion is to add one extra hour (total
of 4-hours) and then we can enjoy the more
complete tour "Iguazu Forest II".
Besides the Jeep Safari passing through the beautiful
nature, we can also enjoy some radical sports like:
Trekking, “Bird-Fly”, Tiroleza and Rappel.
NOTE: physical exercises
RAPPEL: We descend on steep rock
faces and stones between waterfalls and trees. From
the top (starting point) the view is beautiful and
to go down is an emotional and indescribable experience.
TREKKING: We walk through the beautiful
Forest with its rich fauna & flora. We can hear
the song from birds, observe colorful plants etc.
TIROLEZA or TIROLINA: It is a cable
way to cross the ravines, a kind of cable car. We
put some seatbelt and sit on a small chair and then
we cross (one by one) the ravine, very emotional.
BIRDFLY: During this activity you
feel like the “Bird-Man”, a man “flying”
and climbing between the trees in jungle. Some parts
are similar to Tiroleza, you go in a kind of cable
car (a fixed cable trek) but you go between several
trees instead. Each top of the trees are connected
with each other by this cable, where you are able
to run on the cable. Each tree has one kind of “station”
a bridge made of wood, where you can rest. There are
several different ways (exercises) to go (climb) from
one "station" to another. Actually, it is
a kind of steeplechase course in the trees. It is
very funny & adrenaline provocative, and during
your “flight”, you might be accompanied
by a Toucan or some other bird. NOTE:
It might be tiring and you should be prepared for
physical exercises to do this. After the first or
the second (etc) station/exercise, during this steeplechase
course, you may stop and rest or interrupt the activity.
