Paraná river: the longest in Argentina

Did you know that Argentina’s longest river, the Paraná, originated 3 or 4 million years ago? Originally, its watercourse crossed the Mesopotamia region to join the Uruguay River; then it was displaced to the west and very slowly took the river bed that it has today. Today, the Paraná river is 3030 miles long and runs though Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil.

Do you enjoy taking boat trips? Does the breeze caressing your face inspire a sense of freedom in you? Do you feel a special connection with water flows and the sounds of currents? Let’s go on a cruise on the Paraná waterway, the secong longest river in South America.

Where is the Parana River located?

The Paraná River runs through Argentina. Also, it mobilizes a colossal water flow that takes the southern, eastern and southeastern directions through Brazil, Paraguay. The Paraná watercourse is born from the Brazilian rivers Paranaíba and Grande, and flows into the Atlantic Ocean through the Rio de la Plata, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

As we said earlier, the Paraná River is the second longest river in South America, after the Amazon River.

Boat Ride on the Paraná waterway

An activity to enjoy the Paraná jungle. Starting by boat from the private dock of the lodge, we will navigate the river until we reach the third or fourth canal—it depends on how much the waves let us sail! 

We will venture into the canals, where we can appreciate the changes in the landscape, with the colors and noises of the Paraná jungle surrounding us. During the tour, we will be able to see or hear at some point the howler monkeys that live on the treetops, watch caiman sunbathing at the foot of the trees, and spot numerous species of birds, including parrots and toucans, which may join us on the ride. 

We will rest on our floating deck and invite you to contemplate the natural environment of the jungle vegetation, while enjoying a culinary treat.

An adventure for the senses that you will treasure forever.
