This excursion takes place in the central part of the island of Sao Miguel (+/- 45 minute drive away from the city of Ponta Delgada), more specifically in Lombadas (Half Day Plus tour) or Ribeira da Praia (Full Day tour). Upon arrival, we will proceed with the distribution of equipment and a quick safety briefing, followed by a 10 minute / 1 hour hike, respectively, towards the canyons where the fun will begin.

  • The Half Day PLUS tour lasts around 4 hours and takes place in “Vale das Lombadas”. We will literally dive into the start of our canyoning adventure and continue down the river with several rappels along the way. You will have the unique opportunity to contemplate the stunning panorama of the valleys below the most respectable waterfall of Lombadas (+/- 45 meters high). Towards the end of the tour you will enjoy one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the area; a nature pool and rock formation that was formed with different spring waters running through the canyon.
  • The Full Day tour lasts around 8 hours, and can start in the area of “Lagos” (located in the parish of Água D’Alto), or in “Monte Escuro” (depending on the group and weather conditions), both of which are places of great beauty. We will start with a beautiful panoramic hike through Pico da Vela going towards the Canyoning site where the fun will begin! The tour is made up of several rappels of considerable height, wading through the river and exploring the canyon until we reach one of the most magnificent waterfalls on the island (of +/- 45 meters high). We will continue with more thrilling rappels ahead in our natural playground that will give you a birds eye view of the untouched landscape below.
