Did a full day canyoning tour. It was wonderful! Great location, awesome crew, good lunch and just fun all around. I highly recommend it!
Begin your day with pickup from your Ponta Delgada hotel, having remembered to pack your swimsuit and towel. Board your transport and admire the scenery outside as you head to your canyoning departure point at either Parque dos Caldeirões or Salto do Cabrito.
On arrival to the park, receive a safety briefing before pulling on your provided wetsuit and following your guide along a warm up route. Submerge yourself in a natural pool, then continue on a trail that involves a range of canyoning techniques, including jumping, abseiling, scrambling, and swimming, as well as a close look at the local flora and fauna.
Eventually, return to your initial starting point, and replenish with a snack. Next, travel to a natural hot spring to reward your body with a much needed soak. At the end of your excursion, re-board your vehicle and relax as you’re driven back to your hotel.
This is a must do while in Lisbon! The repelling and jumps were not only fun but invigorating! What truly made the experience so memorable, though, were our guides Paulo & Bruno. They were phenomenal! Not only were they knowledgeable, kind and patient...they were hilarious!!...More
Except that I wish there had been even MORE repelling! I think there is another excursion for that, but this one included repelling, jumping off cliffs/waterfalls and "sliding" down rocks. The scenery was spectacular, the guides were fun, and it was nice to know that...More
