Undoubtedly, the most thrilling and fun way to explore one of the most beautiful areas of the island. This tour takes you into the depths of nature, abseiling down various waterfalls, exploring the canyon and wading through its river, sliding and jumping into natural pools below… making It a great way to spend the day if you are looking for a little bit of a challenge, fun and adrenaline.
This excursion takes place at the Salto do Cabrito Waterfall, an amazing spot located very close to Ribeira Grande and Caldeira Velha (+/- 30 minute drive away from the city of Ponta Delgada). When we get there, we will proceed with the equipment distribution and a quick safety briefing, followed by a 30 minute hike towards the start of the canyon where the fun will begin!
We will wade down the river, reaching several waterfalls where we will abseil or zip-line down this deep canyon surrounded by the amazing nature of this volcanic area.
The highest rappel can reach up to 16 meters and, unlike other canyons, there won’t be any jumps. So, to end the adventure, you can opt for a 4 meter jump or a zip-line.
