There are many trails that run through Chapada, with the Trilha dos Cânions e Cariocas being one of the main attractions. Passing through various types of vegetation in the Cerrado biome, the route with stunning scenery gives access to the Cânion II well and Cachoeira dos Cariocas, excellent for a refreshing swim after the walk.

Another interesting route is the Trilha dos Saltos, Carrossel and Corredeiras, where visitors pass through areas of old quartz crystal mining, reaching the viewpoint of Salto do Rio Preto, a waterfall with 100m of free fall, in addition to Cachoeira do Garimpão, with an 80 meter drop and a delicious river bath. Along the way, a complex of waterfalls, canyons and natural pools delight walkers.

Visiting the National Park at night is also a unique experience, making it possible to observe the constellations and planets, as well as the fauna belonging to the region.

In addition to the wildlife, the Pantanal offers a rich culture and warm hospitality. The famous Pantanal ranches offer visitors an authentic experience of life in the countryside, with activities such as horseback riding, fishing, hiking and Pantanal cuisine.

For the more adventurous, hiking through the forest, canoeing on the winding rivers, and spending the night admiring nocturnal animals and the starry sky with thousands of stars dotting the horizon are unforgettable moments.  In addition, the Pantanal is one of the best places in the world for birdwatching, making it one of the most exciting experiences in the region.
