Tourists on the trails that lead up to the Naipi and Taroba viewpoint at the banks of the waterfalls


The tour of the track allows a panoramic view from different angles of the waterfalls that make up the Iguassu Falls. On the way, there are viewpoints that provide a closer look at the falls. The track is 1,200 meters long and because of the stairs, walking is considered of moderate difficulty.

On the way, you can see some of park’s fauna and flora. At the end of the trail, visitors will find access to the Devil’s Throat walkway. Approximately 80 meters high, it considered the most beautiful of the waterfall.

The park administration is developing a project to revitalize the trails, which pretends to implement a new infrastructure to promote contemplation, safety and accessibility of the route.

We recommend

  • Drink plenty of water for hydration;
  • Always were sunscreen;
  • To avoid insect bites, constantly apply repellent;
  • Use a raincoat, since there is a constant light drizzle near the waterfall;
  • Use clothes and shoes suitable for walking;
  • All these articles are available at the park’s gift shop.
