Full 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.

Leaving Ponta Delgada to start this adventure you will cross the narrower part of the island arriving to the second largest city of São Miguel - Ribeira Grande, Here . you will see vast green fields divided by walls of volcanic rocks and the mountain of Lagoa do Fogo.

The activity starts with the equipment distribution to participants, followed by a walk of about 30 minutes, until the entry point, where the safety briefing is held in an old stone bridge. During the canyon, there is a sequence of 3 vertical obstacles (waterfalls) whose transposition will be made with the technique of abseiling (highest waterfall with 15 meters), alternating with small sections of walking, in an area surrounded by lush vegetation and where you can still admire an old hydroelectric plant, and hot spring fumaroles.

After a short stop for picnic in the middle of the stream, we continue through a deeper canyon, with higher waterfalls that finish in the well-known Salto do Cabrito waterfall, a natural amphitheater.
