  • Suitable for (almost) all ages, and for beginners (while still challenging for the most experienced);
  • Possibility of Pick-up (and Drop-off) at your accommodation place;
  • It is recommended that you are in good physical shape, but you don’t need to know how to swim.

This excursion takes place in Ribeira da Salga, located in the northeast part of the island of São Miguel, between the parishes of Lomba de São Pedro and Salga (+/- 40 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 canyon where the fun will begin!

From this tour, you can expect a wild and (almost) untouched nature, with difficult accesses, some steep paths, and a lot of physical exercise. The highest rappel can reach up to 16 meters, and the highest jump up to 8 meters (if you feel uncomfortable about the jumps, know that there are alternatives).

  • The Half Day PLUS tour lasts around 5 hours total and gives you less time and activities (compared to the Full Day tour) although they’re equally fun and challenging.
  • The Full Day tour lasts around 6.5 hours total and gives you a relatively fuller and harder experience (compared to the previous one), with more time to explore and activities to try.
  • The Pick-up time is usually between 08:00 and 08:30 AM at your accommodation. Consider the areas of Ponta Delgada, Capelas, Caloura, Lagoa and Ribeira Grande (for other areas, please contact us).
