Full description

Start with pickup from Funchal, Canico or Câmara De Lobos and drive to the canyoning location. Meet your guides and receive all your equipment for the activity. Take a 20-minute walk to the entrance of a stream where the first safety briefing will take place.

Along the way, abseil down breath-taking waterfalls, jump and swim in beautiful natural pools, always surrounded by incredible landscapes.

With natural water slides, abseiling, and jumps into natural rock pools the canyons are sure to make your heart skip a beat. The beginning of the stream has some vertical challenges (20m), small walking sections, and many play areas.

The river will be flowing by the entire time with several optional jumps. The challenge continues following a quick snack break with waterfalls.

Guides will take pictures and videos of your experience throughout the day, to be sent to you afterward. At the end of the trip, there will be transportation to bring you back to the park where you began your adventure.

We went canyoning for our first time and it was an amazing experience! Guys are great at what they do, you can feel they love it and safety is always first. They are happy to show you around and let you have the full experience. Go try! Easy enough for beginners and exciting as well! The views around are like nothing else you can see just walking around the trails

Without any experience with canyoning, this activity was perfectly feasible. It was constantly challenging and fun. Fabio and Fabrizio were our guides, they are very experienced and always available if you have any questions. Their guidance was top notch! It was a great activity that you should definitely do if you are in Madeira.
