Navigation on the Paraná river

Did you know that the Paraná river originated 3 or 4 million years ago? It 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. e

Do you like taking boat trips? Does the breeze caressing your face inspire a sense of freedom in you? Do you feel a special connection with water and the sounds of currents? Let’s go on a cruise of one of the main rivers in South America.

The Paraná River mobilizes a colossal flow that takes the southern, eastern and southeastern directions through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. It is born from the Brazilian rivers Paranaíba and Grande, and flows into the Atlantic Ocean through the Rio de la Plata. It is 4880 kilometers long, and that is why it is considered the second longest river in South America.

Experiences on the Paraná River 

For lovers of nature and boat tours, at Hotel Puerto Valle we offer unique experiences on the Paraná River. 

We invite you to ride the trails along its shores on horseback, paddle in its waters atop a kayak and explore its navigation channels by boat. Have we already captured your interest? Learn more about our experiences below:

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.

Kayaking, paddles, vests and adrenaline! This activity is great fun. 

With friends, family or as a couple, we will depart together with the guides of Puerto Valle from the beach of the lodge and paddle along the river shores until we reach the second canal of the Paranaense Jungle, where we can feel the embrace of nature and enjoy the landscape watching the colors of sunset shimmering on the river. An adventure for the senses that you will treasure forever. 

Enjoy unique views of the Paraná River banks on horseback!  

We’ll ride along the trails of the riverbank, connecting with nature and living a different experience in the 14 hectares surrounding the lodge.
