Start your very first Canyoning experience while holidaying on Madeira

Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago that lies north of Tenerife, Canary Islands, in the north Atlantic Ocean. As the island is at the top of a massive shield volcano that rises about 6 km from the floor of the Atlantic, its top is made up of a diverse range of canyons with small rivers. Due to its temperate climate, Madeira offers very pleasant temperatures and a very wide range of activities throughout the year. Canyoning ranks among the best.
24. 6. 2013 would now like to introduce to you a team of people with a rich knowledge of local environment. Madeira Adventure Kingdom is an adventure company. They are located in the fantastic Island of Madeira and the company was born with a dream of promoting Madeira island as the ideal destination for active adventure holidays. The company organizes trips around the island, two of which are devoted to Canyoning.

Ribeira das Cales (Beginners tours)

Ribeira das Cales start in “Chão da Lagoa” in the Ecological Park of Funchal at approximately 1500 meters high. Along to the route we found 2 rappels being the biggest one approximately 15 meters high. To overcome the obstacles of the nature we need to do rappel, swim and jump in order to advance. This experience is the best for all people who want to have the first contact with this amazing sport.

Canyoning in Ribeiro Frio

Ribeiro Frio is one of the most beautiful places on Madeira to practice Canyoning. It is a canyon that consists on 6 rappels along the way and the highest one is about 20 meters. The Canyon is located within the Laurissilva Forest that is a UNESCO world heritage site since 1999 and one of the seven wonders of Portugal. A truly breathtaking landscape!

At the Adventure Kingdom, they are passionate about Madeira island and want to enthuse their clients with this passion. They try to make you love Madeira enough to want to return again. This is symbolized in their logo, which is represented by two Boomerangs. Among their other activities are Madeira Levada walks, Scuba diving, Madeira Island tours, Jeep safari or Whale & Dolphin watching. Madeira Adventure Kingdom is registered at the Regional Tourism Board with License No. 38/M/2008.
