Full description
Get set for a sporty challenge and an insight in the beauty of rural Madeira. Discover the scenery of a beautiful valley. After a short walk through a rural area, reach a steep path through a characteristic tree heath to the beginning of the canyon. Come across 4 different rappels varying in altitude up to 17 meters, 2 small slides and 2 small jumps. Marvel at the trees in this canyon, covered with mystic tree beard and encounter fennel, which gave the capital of Funchal its name. At the end of the canyon, walk for fifteen minutes through ancient terraces, back to the starting point.

    The pick up from the hotel went well. The guides were experienced and very nice. The canyoning itself was a lot of fun and thanks to the wetsuits it wasn't cold at all (despite October). With a group size of 9 people there was some waiting time until everyone had overcome an obstacle, but you can enjoy the landscape wonderfully during this time; or the fact that you are sitting in the middle of a stream;) Overall, a very recommendable experience

    was the first time for me, group of 6 people, was very manageable, at the beginning you are well equipped with a suit, socks, shoes and helmet. You are always safe - the guides do it very well! if you are afraid to make smaller (1-3m) jumps then you can slide down the rock without any problems. you will first be abseiled by the guide and then learn to abseil yourself in the course of the process
