Tour programme

We meet at the town hall of Arouca (Câmara Municipal de Arouca), from where we start our way to the canyon. The trip takes about 25 minutes. You can either drive with your own car or we can take up to 7 participants with our vehicles.
- Tour:
Before we start, you will receive the appropriate canyoning equipment and a detailed safety briefing from your guide. Then the adventure begins: We jump, slide and rope down over small waterfalls. But don't worry, all jumps are optional and can be avoided if you don't dare to jump.
