WHAT IS IT?
 
Canyoning is a leisure activity we use different progression techniques to descend canyons formed by water erosion. To achieve all the canyon obstacles is necessary to walk, swim, climb down, or even resort to devices like the classic rope rappelling, guided rappel or even a zip line. Depending on the island, in the Azores the canyons may or may not contain water throughout the year. During the less rainy season is normal to find the canyons with no water.

Due to the specific nature of this activity, you must use a set of very specific and certified equipment, according to all European Norms and Directives. In addition to the guaranteed certification, Tobogã is demanding regarding to the choice of equipment available to its customers. It is why we only work with the best and most up to date equipment available on the market, all tested in the field by our guides and trainers!
