Begin your day with pickup from your Ponta Delgada hotel, having remembered to pack your swimsuit and towel. Board your transport and admire the scenery outside as you head to your canyoning departure point at either Parque dos Caldeirões or Salto do Cabrito.
On arrival to the park, receive a safety briefing before pulling on your provided wetsuit and following your guide along a warm up route. Submerge yourself in a natural pool, then continue on a trail that involves a range of canyoning techniques, including jumping, abseiling, scrambling, and swimming, as well as a close look at the local flora and fauna.
Eventually, return to your initial starting point, and replenish with a snack. Next, travel to a natural hot spring to reward your body with a much needed soak. At the end of your excursion, re-board your vehicle and relax as you’re driven back to your hotel.
