Full description
Canyoning is the sport of travelling down a river situated in a canyon by a variety of means including scrambling, floating, swimming, and abseiling. The canyon you'll visit has a mystical atmosphere and is situated within a rainforest among spring water from the mountain. The experience starts with a briefing about all of the necessary logistics and safety. You will then be provided with all equipment and warm up by walking along a short trail until reaching the start. The descent starts by scrambling down the stream, having fun in this watery playground where you'll have the opportunity to try out jumping (optional), sliding, rappelling, and abseiling down the waterfalls. At every obstacle, there will be a guide explaining everything you need to do and helping you. Along the stream, there will be some jumps, which get higher as the course progresses. The highest one is about 6 meters tall. Nothing is mandatory, so if you don't feel comfortable jumping, don't worry. You can still participate in the tour and have lots of fun. At the end of the tour, photos and videos will be sent directly to your e-mail free of charge.

Very nice, funny and competent team. What I found very positive and didn't know from other canyoning tours was that we also got shoes, which makes the experience even more fun. We were 25 minutes late due to our GPS and called shortly after the original time. It wasn't a problem, they informed the local guides and we were able to join the tour without any problems. I can really only recommend the "Blueberries" whether for beginners or advanced users. Afterwards you get the photos and the videos from the tour. Book with you, you won't regret it!

We can definitely recommend this canyoning experience. Our guides were the best guides you can imagine. They're experienced and make sure you have a great time. The canyoning itself was also very nice with jumps, slides and two rappels. If you want to go canyoning in Sao Miguel, this is the place to be!
