ITINERARY

During the 1970's and the 1980's, 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 three 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 binational 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 environment 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.

There are two options of tours on Itaipu Dam:
  • The Panoramic tour: Watch a documentary film on the power plant. See the dam and spillway from the central observation deck (without entering the facility)
  • The Technical tour: Watch a documentary film on the power plant. See the dam, the spillway from the central observation deck and also visit the facilities of Itaipu Dam.


As the ticket is not included, you can decide which option on the spot.

You can add options to make this experience even better:

Kattamaran:
A memorable tour of the Itaipu lake. Ideal for contemplating the lush landscape. The boat leaves the port Kattamaram, the last stopping point of the visit for the Panoramic Itaipu, and navigates bordering the imposing dam of Itaipu Dam, with about 8km in length, linking Brazil and Paraguay.
