Canyoning in Madeira Island

Madeira’s dramatic landscape offers ideal canyoning conditions, but this can be intimidating for a beginner. On this small group excursion, benefit from the focused guidance of 2 certificated professionals, and enjoy an accessible route that includes a range of canyoning techniques, including jumping and abseiling. Travel with ease to the mountainous location with hotel pickup and drop-off included, and get an intimate look at Madeira’s native wildlife and geography.

What to Expect

Begin your canyoning experience with pickup from your hotel. Remember to pack your swimsuit and towel, as you head immediately to Funchal’s Ecological Park, in the south of the island.

The tour is intended for first time canyoners, and in your small group receive support and guidance from your certificated guides. Strap into your canyoning boots and pull on your wet-suit, then swim, scramble, jump, and abseil your way along the accessible route, conquering many natural obstacles along the way, including a 15 meter rock face. Encounter the native flora and fauna of the region, pose for in-tour snaps, and re-energize with complimentary chocolate and water.

At the end of your adventure, relax after all of the adrenaline and excitement and admire the views as you’re driven back to your hotel.

Brilliant introduction to canyoning that left us wanting more! The guides were very friendly and we had a good laugh. If you are really wanting an adrenaline rush I'd recommend jumping straight into level 2.
