In this context, this work has as main objective, draw up a geo-environmental analysis of the upper course of the Paraná River, in the states of Mato Grosso do Sul and Paraná, in order to identify and characterize the most favorable river subambientes the tourist interest, determine what the environmental fragility of the area and what time of resilience that have subambientes, identifying the impacts may result from tourism and definition of river tourism carrying capacity contemplating the intrinsic features of the site considering its environmental fragility.
