Over onehundred water-bearing canyons are hidden in the mountains of the island,
seventy of them are developed for canyoning, regardless of whether you are a
beginner or advanced - there is a suitable canyon for everyone.
We have invented our canyoning holiday so that you can get to know this fascinating mixture of rock, water and adrenaline. A whole week including five different canyoning tours of various types await you.
For those who want even more, we offer a canyoning course as well.
The level 1 canyoning course is the start of self-organized
canyon descents. You will learn all the necessary basic techniques to go on
easy canyoning tours with friends on your own.
The installation of abseiling points is on the curriculum as well as the various rapelling methods, communication and material handling. You will learn how to prepare and conduct a tour.
The concentrated knowledge of a canyoning professional with twenty years of experience awaits you in Madeira. I share this knowledge with you.
This course is the advanced course after level 1. You will learn
the necessary techniques for demanding canyons: complex abseiling positions,
ascending the rope, the organization and planning of complex and longer tours
as well as important rescue techniques.
At the same time, you get to know the most exciting gorges in Madeira, high waterfalls, great jumps and a unique landscape are waiting for you.
After participating, the huge world of this sport is open to you. There are several thousand equipped tours across Europe!
Our climbing holiday is an incomparable mixture of climbing
volcanic rock, luxurious accommodation, delicious food and beautiful nature.
Five days of climbing, some of them directly by the sea, make your heart beat faster. In the evening at the barbecue, we talk shop and review the day with its many impressions.
Of course, we provide all necessary material such as climbing harness, helmet, carabiners, ropes and climbing shoes free of charge and take care of the transfers to the climbing rocks.
We discover Madeira on selected hiking trails. The hiking week
includes five tours on mountain peaks, along artistically designed levadas or
in hidden gorges.
We enjoy the unique landscape, the fascinating botany and the many animals that we meet on our hikes. For some stretches we need a flashlight because we are going through tunnels - on others, height stability is required.
The variety of experiences is so extensive that you will never want to hike anywhere else again.
The culmination of European hikes is a multi-day hike in Madeira.
On the Sea to Summit Tour we start at Paul do Mar beach and hike first a rugged gorge to Raposeira, from there we follow wild levadas into the highlands and pass some tunnels. Finally we pass several higher and higher mountain peaks until we reach the highest, the Pico Ruivo. The last stage leads to the Pico Arieiro summit.
A week full of discoveries, experiences and unforgettable memories.
