    All about the Madeira Canyoning.

    Join us on this full-day, thrilling experience out on a stream on the island’s interior. This activity requires some physical effort. Our well-trained guides will help you enjoy the fun of descending the canyon safely using various mountain techniques such as climbing, abseiling, hiking and even swimming. The scenery is spectacular, with waterfalls flowing into small streams or ponds, and the water is clear and deep. Let yourself slide through the flowing water and then challenge the current strength with the help of a fixed rope. We will follow this route, along with all-natural obstacles and various abseiling. We will alternate abseiling with jumps into small natural ponds and toboggans— an incredible experience full of excitement (initiation or practice). It’s worth booking! Limited availability, so book now to avoid disappointment!

    Madeira island holidays are the ideal getaway all year round. Madeira weather in coastal areas is temperate and mild with no great extremes-although the temperature can drop the higher you go on the island so, whatever time of year you visit, be sure to bring warm clothes when visiting the mountains. Obviously, rainfall is higher in the winter and you’ll probably need to pack a raincoat or umbrella. Madeira’s average temperatures range from 18C in winter to 25C in summer, with sea temperatures being nearly the same due to a warm Gulf Stream that surrounds the Island all year round, 18C to 22C.

    The dress code for our tours is comfortable and casual. Dressing in layers gives most comfort, as you can shed and add items when the climate varies. Consider packing.

    • Comfortable walking shoes
    • An all-weather coat
    • Comfortable clothing.

    You may reserve online or email us at info@luxmadeira.com.
