The activity takes place not far from the entrance to the National Park which hosts the falls. The region of the Iguaçu River where the activity is conducted is located in the section of its lower course which forms the border between Brazil and Argentina. The area is approximately 7 km after the falls.
The Aquaray adventure begins with a 45 minute light walk on the "Trail of the Indian," which leads into a lush forest inhabited by monkeys, coatis and many birds. The trail ends at the Iguaçu River and base of water activities, where your guides will explain the equipment to be used on your river experience. Heading into the river, you have a choice of kayaking or Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boarding, with all the safety equipment included. The river route takes you on a 2 km radius of the Iguaçu River, roughly 1 hour of paddling in a region of tranquility and beauty. You then take a short trek to a beautiful hidden waterfall where it is time to cool down again in the crystal water.
The practice of canoeing at this site is considered low risk, and the trained guides follow rigorous safety standards which reduce the risk to almost zero. Life jackets and helmets are used, as well as kayaks and boards of a stable quality.
