Fun Activities to do on Foz Do Iguacu
The only way to enjoy this Brazilian town the most is when driving in your own air conditioned car rental. There is an abundance of tourist spots in the city you can indulge in.
- The Devil’s Throat - you can hear the devil’s throat gaggle even before it comes to view. This is a walk in the gorge that was named so because of the raging waterfalls that hit the gorge, producing a mighty roar while sending rivulets of water all over the air.
- The Iguazu Falls - these falls are quite beautiful when viewed from the Brazilian side. However, you can also take the excitement a notch higher by taking a helicopter ride and kiss the falls right at the tip. You can choose the standard flight time, which is only 10minutes above the falls while the deluxe package allows you to spend more time enjoying the aerial view of the falls, the Itaipu Dam and the Brazilian borders.
- Parque Nacional do Iguazu - Brazil is full of trailing places with this one offering several paths for refreshing walk-in trails. This is probably one of the longest trails you will take since it stretches for over 12km. But do not despair about how long the trail is; at the end will be the most rewarding view of the devil’s throat.
- The Hydroelectric Plant - this is a good way to make your Brazilian tour educational by visiting the town’s main hydroelectric plant. The tour begins with a short film showcasing the evolution of power production in the city, how the Itaipu dam was created. What is fascinating about this hydroelectric plant is that it gave birth to the dam, which today is a lifeline for endangered animals as well as the conservation of riparian forests.
