Rio Iapo and Tibaji, Brazil

Stunning views for the mile-ish hike in

Rio Iapo 

Put In:    GPS (-24.631704, -50.210583) Note: Hike in through farm land, down hill, and upstream.

Take Out:    GPS (-24.504276, -50.327558) Note: Private property? Bouncy dirt road.

Class:    4 (2 class 5 rapids, or easy portages on left) 

Flow:    Visual, has flow for longer into the season, large drainage.

Discription: This section is a solid day trip from most other paddling locations, but it's worth it. A relatively large watershed holds water late into the year. Mostly a class 4 section with two notable class 5 rapids, both are easily scouted or portaged river Left. Large Rock outcroppings at the put in are gorgeous.

Rio Tibaji 

Put In:    GPS (-24.469234, -50.476162)

Class:    4

Flow:    Visual, always has flow.

Discription:     Park and huck. Wide river section that will almost always have flow and an acceptable line. We ran it on the main flow, river right. Great camping options just upstream on river left.



signifigantly more water on the Tibaji
