Canyoning in Madeira Island

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Madeira Island offers exceptional conditions for the practice of canyoning, due to its geological, climatic, hydrological, touristic and natural characteristics. It is considered by canyoning professionals as one of the best regions in Europe.
  • Travel with ease and save time locating a meeting point, with hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Ideal for first time or rusty canyoners, try a range of different techniques under expert supervision
  • High quality gear is provided, including Adidas canyoning boots and a VadeRetro neoprene suit
  • Immerse yourself in Madeira’s geological and natural features, and see its native wildlife up close
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.
