Iguassu National Park and Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam tour: The tour starts at the Visitors Center, to introduce the Park. Then, you will be inside the National Park. Here we will do the walking tour along the boardwalk. Along this easy trek, there are several gorgeous panoramic views of the Falls and at the end of the catwalk you get a fantastic close-up view of the Devils’ Throat and main waterfalls.
In order to visit the Devil’s Throat, you must board the train at the Main Station or at the Cataratas Station, close to the Upper Circuit. For those who love trekking there is the one-kilometer-long Sendero Verde (Green Trail) that connects the Visitors Center to the Cataratas Station and to the Upper Circuit.
Then we will visit the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam. It's the largest operation in the world and a bi-national enterprise developed by Brazil and Paraguay on the Paraná River. The dam is responsible for supplying 90% of the energy consumed in Paraguay and 25% of all the demand in the Brazilian market.
As a work of engineering the dam was elected by the American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE) as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
