CANYONING consists on a descent of a water course (usually embedded and with steep slopes) on foot or by swimming, resorting to abseiling, jumps and slides to overcome the obstacles.
The canyoning activities take place in properly equipped streams.
The RAPPEL CHALLENGER is an adventure course in a river without water where, in order to overcome obstacles, we will walk resort to abseiling. São Jorge island is by far one of the Azorean islands with excellent quality canyonings guaranteed to offer the participants wonderful landscapes where, among other features, we highlight the many beautiful waterfalls where participants will have a real and unforgettable contact with nature and the freshness of the island of São Jorge.
Before the activity begins the participants will be provided with the necessary information as well as a small training, followed by the equipment usage rules, essential conditions to ensure safety and a brief description of the training and work experience of the monitors and their collaborators.
