All about the Canyoning in Madeira.

Canyoning is a fun-filled adventure activity, set in spectacular natural surroundings in the island of Madeira. The activity itself takes place along the rivers and waterfalls of the island, beginning with pickup in Funchal. We’ll take you along in a 4×4 jeep until reaching the water. Here you will receive a safety briefing and get kitted up for your activity.

The river provides fun obstacles for you including cliff jumping, rappeling, and swimming in lovely waterfalls and lakes. It’s a strenuous activity, but well worth the effort! No experience is required for this activity, as our guides are also certified instructors and will be there with you every step of the way

So what are you waiting for? Book your canyoning experience today!
