The Canyoning tour will take place in Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeirões, one of the most extraordinary places in the northeastern part of the island of São Miguel (+/- 45 minute drive away from the city of Ponta Delgada). Upon arrival, we will proceed with the distribution of equipment and a quick safety briefing, followed by a 20 minute hike towards the beginning of this canyoning adventure where we will jump, slide and rappel on our journey down the river. We will end the tour by relaxing in the park with a cozy picnic-lunch of regional products.
During this canyoning tour the highest rappel can reach up to 15 meters, and the highest jump can be up to 6 meters (if you feel uncomfortable about the jumps, know that there are alternatives).

On the other hand, our Bike Tours can be carried out in one of the following 2 areas, depending on local conditions, weather and the abilities of the group:

– GRAMINHAIS / TRONQUEIRA: The circuit will start on the Graminhais plateau, very close to Pico da Vara (the highest peak of the island), and will pass through the area of Tronqueira, which covers the largest primitive forest of the island, surrounded by immense mountains and deep valleys. In addition to breathtaking landscapes, you will have the opportunity to explore and get to know a little of the typical fauna, flora and geology of São Miguel.

NOTE: Most of the tour will be done downhill, and some places can be quite steep.

– FURNAS: This is, perhaps, the most unusual and impressive parish on the island, as it is located within one of the oldest and still active volcanic calderas of the archipelago. In addition to having the opportunity to visit the emblematic fumaroles, thermal springs and Furnas Lagoon, you will also learn about the history of this magnificent land.

NOTE: This will be a slightly more demanding tour, with some rough uphill roads that, in the end, will be totally worth it!
