Situated around 300 miles off the African coast, and over 600 miles from the European mainland, the volcanic island of Madeira is about as isolated as it gets, which makes it an absolute playground for lovers of outdoor activities. Get involved with this awesome Madeira canyoning experience, a totally thrilling sport that will see you tackling obstacles across a mountainous watercourse, including rappelling down waterfalls.
You’ll be taking the Chão da Lagoa route, through the unbelievably lush landscape of this beautiful island, with many floral displays to admire. Reaching the first of two waterfalls along a rocky path, you’ll be strapped into a harness and abseil down distances up to 60ft (18m), your safety-conscious and experienced guides at your side. Madeira is a great place to holiday, but this canyoning experience really shakes up the traditional concept of a relaxing stay. See you at the bottom!
