Full description
Madeira island is one of the top 5 places in the world for the practice of canyoning/canyoneering, and this is your opportunity to experience it first hand. Following pickup from your hotel, you'll head up to the mountains where you will receive your canyoning gear. After being decked out in your gear, it will be time for a small hike through some of the most impressive and exclusive nature that Madeira has to offer. As soon as your safety briefing concludes, it will be time to rappel down paradisaical waterfalls, where the mountain spring waters are always flowing. Along the canyon you'll also encounter natural swimming pools which you can swim in and even jump into. In some of the canyons you may also have the opportunity to slide down natural water slides. Once the activity ends you'll change back into your regular dry clothes, following which you'll be returned back to your accommodation.

It was my first time trying out canyoning and I couldn’t have picked a better provider and location to do so. The transfer to and back from the spot was smooth and the canyoning itself was a fantastic experience. We had 3 guides during the activity and all of them were very chill and made sure everyone was feeling good and alleviate our anxieties because sometimes it did look a bit crazy (slippery, heights etc) . But all in all I’m hooked and already looking for new places to do canyoning. Thank you Epic guys!!

This was our first time and we loved it! (Yes, yes - level 2 now in the plans ;) haha) Daniel and Ronaldo were really great guys - fully explaining everything, funny and attentive. Everything was provided to us so did not needed to worry about clothing etc. (some other companies that offers similar activities Is asking you to bring swimming shoes) I would say this activity is definitely for adventure seekers with advice of being prepared to do some hiking. Activity is worth the money and Madeira is a great place for this! Thank you guys for looking after us and having fun at the same time, we really enjoyed it! Maria aka Inga and Camilo :)

I am 70 years old and wanted to try this. What an amazing day! It was more difficult than I expected but the guides knew just how to help me through my anxiety and I completed all the falls without incident. Thank you lovely Marta. I highly recommend this guide group!
