Note: It is recommended that you are in good physical shape as this tour includes climbing a steep “staircase”, walking on unstable terrain, muddy slopes, and small uphill and downhill scrambles. However, you don’t need to know how to swim. The safety of our clients of is of our utmost priority and so do not recommend this activity for persons weighing more than 120kg.


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, mostly uphill, 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 at the last waterfall. 

NOTE: The terrain, landscape and river may change throughout the year due to heavy weather conditions. We are flexible with our route and Canyoning techniques depending on river and surrounding conditions and group abilities.
