With 53 bolted routes and expert guides, the Canyoning holiday on São Miguel & Flores is a great way to explore the islands of São Miguel and Flores.
Staying in the lovely 4 star Hotel do Colegio in Ponta Delgada, you will spend a day out at either Nordeste or Ribeira Grande getting to grips with canyoning which involves abseiling down waterfalls, jumping into pools and sliding down water chutes.
From there, for the next stage of your canyoning holiday you’ll fly to Flores island, the westernmost point of Europe, which is renowned for its cascading waterfalls and gorgeous scenery and walking trails. Based in the capital, Santa Cruz, at the 4 star Hotel das Flores, our expert guides will take you on 2 canyoning trips each on separate days. They last 3-4 hours and involve 7 abseils, the longest of which is 20m and 10-20 minutes walking.
Canyoning is fast growing in popularity and unknown to most visitors, three of Azores islands have excellent canyoning trips. Flores offers the greatest diversity of routes from steep drops to easy routes. São Jorge has harder routes which are more difficult to reach as most of them are only accessible by boat. While São Miguel’s routes are mainly in the interior of the island and are less steep.
On the canyoning holiday there is a minimum age of 8 yrs and no maximum. All guides are well qualified and wet suits, helmets and all abseil equipment are provided.
