The highest rappel will be 15 meters, with the highest jump being around 6 meters. There will be some time for the equipment distribution with the help of your guides, before you take a short hike in order to approach the stream followed by a security briefing.

What people are saying about São Miguel Island

Great experience with great guides who carefully monitored each individual. There were various "jumping and abseiling obstacles", with the jumps being made from around 3m and 5m in height. Anyone who didn't want to (or couldn't) jump was abseiled down. Our group consisted of 13 participants and 3 guides. Equipment was completely provided. You should have a certain level of fitness and be sure-footed (there were some climbing passages on muddy ground and large stones in the water that were not visible) and enjoy the challenge. For us it was a successful trip.

This was our first canyoning and it was epic for us. A lot of fun without fear. The guys were very patient, nice and they explained everything. I felt myself very safe and in good hands. It was a very great experience, I recommend to everybody!!

Beautiful tour that seemed like a fairytale. Excellent guides with great senses of humor and good local knowledge. Very professional guides that we trusted for our safety.

The hike there and back is TOUGH. However, the rest of the activity was a blast! Such an amazing adventure.

Great experience, friendly guides, well worth the money
