Activity Description

Are you visiting Sao Miguel and you're looking for adventure? There's nothing more exhilarating than a full day of canyoning in the blue waters and the green forests of the island. A fun activity for both sporty and not so sporty types who just wanna have fun. 

The interior of São Miguel hides waterfalls and streams that you can only explore actively with canyoning. Walking down the river, abseiling, jumping into crystal clear water pools, gliding between rocks shaped by the flow of the stream and challenging the waterfalls flowing from the top... these are the ingredients for memorable moments of canyoning!

Feel the adrenaline and fun while canyoning in Sao Miguel, in a genuine water park created by nature.
