Itaipu Dam Tour in Iguassu Falls Brazil

Itaipu Dam Tour in Iguassu Falls Brazil

Take a small group tour from Iguassu Falls to the Itaipu Dam.

During the 1970s and the 1980s, while it was under construction, the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam was regarded as a pharaonic work, fruit of the megalomaniac commanders ruling Brazil in those years. Today, after multiple decades, the perspective is quite different.

Responsible for the production of 95% of the electricity consumed in Paraguay, and for 24% of the whole Brazilian consumption, this bi-national enterprise –built by workers, technical operators and engineers from Brazil and Paraguay – proves day after day its magnitude in the national and the international scene.

The first generator unit started to operate in 1984, and since then the power plant has successively broken production and revenue records. Besides the production of energy, Itaipu also stands as a symbol of environmental preservation. The company runs the Biological Haven Bela Vista, continuous reforestation programs and projects that foster fish production as well as wild animal reproduction. There is also an Eco-museum that tells the story of the construction and maintenance of this unrivaled work.

Please Note: Guided tours at the dam are available for purchase on-site. See "Guided Tours Details."
