Half Day Canyoning in Ribeira dos Caldeirões with Transportation
São Miguel
Activities/Mountain recreation/Canyoning

The interior of São Miguel hides waterfalls and streams that one can explore actively with Canyoning. Walking inside the water, jump into cristal clear water pools, liding between rocks shaped by the flow of the stream and challenge the waterfalls flowing from the top, these are the ingredients for moments of adrenaline and fun, in a genuine water park created by nature.

This adventure starts with a drive of about 40 minutes through the island of São Miguel, first crossing from the south to the north coast, where it's possible to see vast green fields divided by walls of volcanic rocks. Already in the North coast, breathtaking views over the high cliffs and a unic sight of the oldest tea plantation in Europe - Gorreana. 

Then you will arrive at Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeirões, one of the most popular places in Nordeste region, with its splendid diverse green vegetation, clear and fresh waters that create beautiful waterfalls, and the tranquility of a magical place. Last but not the least, old water mills, that will take you back in time. 

The activity starts with the equipment distribution to participants, followed by a short walk of about 20 minutes, until the entry point in the stream, where the safety briefing takes place. 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 5 meters tall).


Minimum age: 6 years (until 18 years must be accompanied by parents or guardians, or bring a written permission).
