Overview
A driving tour is one way to admire the Azores’ natural landscape, but for real insight, physically explore the scenery with a canyoning tour of the region’s rocks, waterfalls, and forest. Abseil, leap, and swim your way around a São Miguel national park, then afterward treat your body to a natural bath. Enjoy an intimate experience of nature while benefiting from the instruction of a professional guide.
What to Expect

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.

Would totally do this again!

Except that I wish there had been even MORE repelling! I think there is another excursion for that, but this one included repelling, jumping off cliffs/waterfalls and "sliding" down rocks. The scenery was spectacular, the guides were fun, and it was nice to know that...More

Amazing experience

This tour was a highlight of our trip. The guides were super attentive to everyone in the group. It was our first time canyoning, and we felt very comfortable repelling, jumping, and sliding down the river. Don’t miss this activity if you want to immerse...More

A great way to step out of your comfort zone and experience paradise

Neither my husband or I had been canyoning before. In fact, we didn’t really know exactly what it was when we booked this tour. I hadn’t been repelling in 15+ years and my husband had never done it. We had Paulo (the owner) and his...More

Difficult to judge, but you build it up from small jumps to the bigger. If you don't like jumping there is often a cheat way, but the jump is the fun of it. One in our group cheated the last jump.

There were no life jackets. But the wetsuit is very buoyant, which helps a lot. Also the deepest water was probably 8-9 feet. If you can swim 3 yards, you will be fine. The tour was a highlight of our trip.

Yes. The mini ones you need to do, but you can opt out of the 30ft. jumps.
