Full description
Your 3-hour canyoning experience takes place on a mountainous watercourse. To overcome the obstacles of nature, you’ll have to swim, jump, and rappel down small waterfalls.

All you need to bring is a towel, swimsuit, sports shoes (that you don't mind getting wet) and a change of clothing. All other equipment items, including a safety harness and wetsuit, are provided.

Armed with a sense of adventure, you’ll hike through the lush landscape of Madeira and along rocky paths to reach the rappel site.

Once safely harnessed, you’ll abseil down the waterfalls. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done this before, as the guides are extremely safety conscious and professionally trained.

You’re sure to end up with a newfound interest in this exhilarating sport and perhaps a desire to take it to the next level.
