A series of tranquilo (quiet/low-key) community-run tourism projects operate in Parque Nacional Madidi – but if you need more adrenaline, try the company formerly known as Biggest Canopy in Bolivia. It's a forest-canopy zip line for those with a head for heights, a strong stomach and a need for speed. Book at the Rurrenabaque office.

The zipline trip includes transport to Villa Alcira, water, and some local hiking.
