There is no activity that allows such an intense contact with nature as canyoning!
Canyoning is about more than just overcoming the obstacles that you may find in the river, it is a chance to challenge yourself and have lots of fun doing it! If you have never canyoned before, the aim of the sport is to make your way down river by any means possible including: hiking, rappelling, scrambling, sliding, jumps (optional) and tobogganing (sliding down rocks) doing this activity means becoming part of the river! If you are an experienced canyoner do not miss the opportunity to explore the rivers of Gerês the amount and variety of lagoons and waterfalls is amazing and well worth a visit.
We provide excellent equipment and specialist guides who will ensure you have the time of your life!
