The hilly volcanic landscape of Sao Miguel hides many surprises, like high waterfalls, winding streams, and pockets of lush forests. Venture through these natural playgrounds on a canyoning trip of jumps and abseils. Whether you have previous experience or not, this dynamic journey brings adventure and plenty of fun. 

A 45-minute drive from the meeting point brings you the area of Caldeiras near Ribeira Grande. From here, take a 30-minute walk into the forest bursting with green to get to the starting point. Once you reach a picturesque old bridge, your guide gives a safety briefing and the canyoning begins. 

As you hike along the flowing stream, you come across three high obstacles of gorgeous waterfalls, the highest standing at remarkable 15 m (50 ft). Abseil down these rocky cliffs with only the sound of the flowing water and chirping birds around you. With a bit of walking in between, the entire route takes about 2.5-hours. You finish at the Salto do Cabrito waterfall, a notorious site located near an abandoned hydroelectric plant. Admire the rich vegetation growing all over the damp rock wall and take in the damp island air. 

Just inland of Sao Miguel’s gorgeous coastline another spectacular show of water waits to be explored. Dive into this lush landscape on a canyoning trip full of adrenaline.
