Canyoning Madeira Island
Discover the pleasures associated with Canyoning safely on the fantastic island of Madeira.
Canyoning is a mountain sport, which takes place in a river bed and it involves overcoming natural obstacles, walking, jumping, abseiling and swimming in fantastic lagoons.
In Madeira, the most popular location to do Canyoning is the streams of Porto Moniz. Another well-known spot is Ribeira das Cales, which starts at Chão da Lagoa, in the Funchal Ecological Park, at approximately 1500 metres of altitude.
Filled with thrills, this sport takes place in the dizzying descending paths of streams. During the summer, the northern rivers are the most frequented, because the flow rate is higher. In winter, the south of the island is most sought after because of the softer gaps and the calmer currents.
To do Canyoning, you will need a bathing suit, a towel and sporty trainers that you don’t mind getting wet. Make sure you are always accompanied by a team of professionals who will guide you safely on this adventure.
