This is the perfect tour for adventure seekers. Save hours researching Portugal’s areas of natural beauty, and instead have a full itinerary organised for you. You’ll get access to places that you wouldn’t be able to find without a guide—such as hidden waterfalls, and water pools. No need to buy expensive equipment—as helmets, harnesses and technical gear is included, and you'll get a full safety briefing. Enjoy abseiling, and exploring Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park on foot.
What to Expect
Canyoning activity starts at Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park with the equipment distribution to participants (isothermal protection, helmet, harness and technical equipment, collective material) 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 eight meters), alternating with small walking sections and a more playful area (slide and a jump with about four meters tall). We have daily tours with small groups and certified guides. Transportation is not included.
Minimum equipment necessary: swim suit, shoes with hard soles for the activity (tennis shoes or boots), towel, sunscreen, and one change of clothes (shoes) to wear after the activity (it is also recommended for participants to tie back their hair, if applicable)
Recommended Equipment: lycra shirt, neoprene gloves, and waterproof bag (to keep the phone and/or the camera)

We booked this as it was a “good introduction” to canyoning and “good for beginners/first timers”. I would say it is definitely not for beginners or people who have any nerves. The jumps are high and the instructors not the most encouraging or reassuring. If...More

Great tour company!

We did both the half day canyoning trip and on a different day the mountain biking/canoeing trip. The biking and canoeing was quite relaxing. It is a great way to see Furnas and eat a traditional meal there. The mountain biking is not very technical...More
