Full description

Explore the Barranco de los Cernícalos ravine with an instructor. Experience a real-life adventure as you abseil down waterfalls, hike through the jungle, and cross pools.

Meet your instructor and receive your wetsuit, harness, and helmet. Learn how to use the equipment and make sure it's properly fitted before setting off on a 20-minute hike through a rural area. Enjoy views of the northeast part of Gran Canaria as your guide shares the island's history.

Then, it's time to get your adrenaline pumping. Follow the watercourse and rappel up to 12 meters down a waterfall under your instructor's guidance. Slide across pools and walk through the jungle as you descend the ravine.

After abseiling down 4 waterfalls, you will be at the narrowest part of the canyon. Cross a waterfall and then head back along an adventure trail to the starting point. Take a break for a snack and enjoy views of the canyon from above.

The tour was well planned, the two guides gave us great support. The group of 8 people was OK, with more people it will certainly be a bit of a stretch. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't ideal, so that despite the neoprene suits, you froze a bit while waiting on the tour. I would have expected a little more water. But abseiling down the falls was exciting. At the end of the tour before the ascent (about 40 minutes) there was an energy drink and a muesli bar as a refreshment. I did canyoning for the first time and I wanted to do more tours like this. Because of the little water I give it 4 stars, otherwise I can definitely recommend the tour!

There were three of us in a group of 8 accompanied by Pablo and Manu and it was really great. Of course it's exhausting to get up the mountain, but consideration was given very attentively with relaxed conversation and everyone's motivation was kept high. The descent through the canyon was a great, varied and thrilling experience. You always had the choice of how much thrill you wanted to give yourself and thanks to the very calm, understandable instruction we felt very safe right up to the end (16m steep wall abseiling). A big thank you to the great team, continued success for future tours. All the best Jochen and Margret

Fantastisk tur igennem natur skønt område. Guide mm var meget opmærksom på deltager og gav endda nogle fine inputs/forklaringer til omgivelserne. Dejligt at de sørge for at tage billeder, da det ikke var smart at have telefon med.
