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!

Along the way there are vertical challenges (waterfalls) whose transposition will be made with the technique of abseiling (highest waterfall with 8 meters), alternating with small walking sections and a more playful area (slide and a jump with about 4 meters tall).

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