    Such an awesome way to see parts of São Miguel that you wouldn’t be able to see, and what better way than repelling, jumping and sliding your way through a beautiful park?? Highly recommend!

    This was without a doubt one of our best experiences in the Azores. Our two guides, Bruno and Jiao were both incredibly knowledgable about canyoning and there was never a moment where I felt unsafe. Their sense of humor provided just enough levity to make it an amazing day. Whether it was rappelling down waterfalls, climbing over boulders or leaping off of high rockfaces into mountain pools, we always felt safe and supported and comfortable leaning into our discomfort. We had all the comfort and safety gear we needed to have a wonderful, and safe experience, such as wetsuits, footwear, and harnesses.

    By rappelling down the waterfalls and walking through the stream beds, we were also able to see a part of a beautiful natural preserve that otherwise was quite remote and hard to access. What a fantastic way to see the natural beauty of the Azores. Thanks for the fantastic day!

    The sites were beautiful! We had a wonderful guide. The experience overall was great. There was a lot more cliff jumping then repelling, so if you aren’t in to jumping into the water from high places this activity might not be for you. We repelled down two waterfalls, jumped in 3-4 times and slide down a natural slide. Overall we had a very pleasant experience.

    Paulo was so much fun. He was very attentive and made sure everyone was going at their own pace. He also gave assistance towards my girlfriend cause she wasn't a good swimmer. Awesome experience with the tour guide and also our group of people.
