What an incredible day's adventure! We went canyoning with Adventure Kingdom in Madeira, and had AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. We were taken to the site past spectacular views of Madeira, given all the required gear & equipment (& seemingly more!), shown how to wear & use it, then off we went. No stroll down a valley by a stream was this! We went straight into our first rappel, then jumped into our first deep pool, then clambered on beneath a lush green canopy high overhead, to a rock slide seemingly straight out of "The Goonies"! And then came more and more and more of the same. The setting was stunning, and the activity thrilling. The Adventure Kingdom guides (Nunu & Georges in particular) managed to be friendly, professional, & relaxed all at the same time, and made all 5 of us feel confident even though it was our first time ever doing the sport. It left me absolutely wanting more, and vowing to get back to Madeira at some point in the future to do it all over again! The previous reviewer is spot on in her assessment; if you're half-way fit, and want something that actually DOES feel like an adventure to make you feel alive - whilst staying in competent hands! - then contact Jhonathan Rodrigues at Adventure Kingdom. Believe me - you'll thank yourself you did. DO IT!!!

“Possibly the best thing I've ever done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

I went canyoning with Adventure Kingdom in August. It was the most amazing experience and I can't recommend it highly enough. The Adventure Kingdom guides were friendly and helpful, and led us totally professionally through the incredible Madeiran countryside into places inaccessible any other way. I'd expected a rocky trek down a river bed with the occasional abseil, but from the moment we set off down the canyon there was a seemingly endless series of excitment and breathtaking beauty. The day's canyoning experience included about half a dozen abseils, a zip-slide run, and the most unbelievable natural rock slides, as well as the opportunity to jump into deep pools from quite a height. It was magical, and a real challenge, pushing the bounds of the comfort zone yet within the abilities of any fit adult/teenager who enjoys some adrenaline coursing through the blood. I can't wait to go canyoning again and if you get the chance to have a go, then you really must.
