Our journey starts in an almost desolated village at the north side of the Island. The last meters by car are an adventure! We will do one rappel to warm up, before we reach a 55 meter drop that brings us down into one of the most beautiful canyons of Madeira. Between the high walls we continue our journey and we pass water curtains and rocks that range from iron red to copper green colour. Along our way we will do 8 rappels in total and 2 (optional) jumps of 6 and 8 meters high before we will get view on the Atlantic Ocean at the north side of Madeira. The canyon ends with a last rappel trough a waterfall by a hardly recognizable old road to the sea. With views over the north coast we walk in a few minutes back to the road.
