You may not know Sao Miguel Island is also known as “The Green Island.” This canyoning trip will show you why. Green takes over just about every surface of the Ribeiro dos Caldeiroes Natural Park. Explore this lush forest on a friendly canyoning route, open to those with no previous canyoning experience.

The 40-minute drive from the meeting point brings you to the north coast, where you begin to see high volcanic rocks and wide green fields. The Ribeiro dos Caldeiroes Natural Park's high position offers spectacular views over high cliffs and diverse trees. You can also see the oldest tea plantation in Europe, Gorreana, a grower of black and green teas since 1883. Once you receive your equipment and a safety briefing, you head off towards the starting point. The 20-minute walk through the park leads you through the park’s sloping hill of ferns, cedar trees, and Laurissilva. You may pass one of the park’s five water mills, some dating back to the 16th century.

 Once you arrive at the stream, the adventure begins. Zip down natural rock slides into the clear water, and jump from high rocks for an adrenaline kick. When you encounter greater heights, like flowing waterfalls, you abseil down the rock wall safely into the water. The highest waterfall along the way is 8 m (26 ft) and the highest jump is 5 m (17 ft). 

At the end of the route, a 20-minute walk brings the group back to the van and you return to Ponta Delgada.

After a dynamic day canyoning through the Ribeiro dos Caldeiroes Natural Park and discovering the “The Green Island,” you’ll know why Sao Miguel deserves this nickname.
