In this sport, nature is, at the same time, the main attraction and the main difficulty. The challenge is not opening up new paths, but break the ones already opened by nature.
These activities are offered by us together with another company from Bom Jardin de Minas, a neighbour city. Therefore it is very important to book in advance.
When visiting the #CityOfWaterfalls, remember to take into account these advices.
