What people are saying about Ribeira Grande

From start to finish, the experience was so much fun! You will start by gearing up into a wetsuit and harness and then head off for a 30 minute hike to reach the waterfalls. Though the wetsuit is a bit heavy for the hike, it helps a lot as it protects you from the vegetation and allows you to slide on your bottom if you prefer for any steep parts. Over the course of the next few hours, it’s a mix of jumps, rappels and walking through the river. The vegetation is stunning and you feel like you are in an oasis. We always felt safe and at ease to go at our own pace and choose which way we felt most comfortable going down. They also take pictures and video of you so you can just enjoy the experience. The guides were fantastic and really nice and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend if you are up for an adventure and some thrills!

I can’t recommend this experience enough. The trip was smooth start to finish. Our guides we friendly, professional, welcoming, informative and most importantly a lot of fun! We had a great relationship with our guides which made the experience even more enjoyable. It was clear they are passionate about their job and delivering the best possible experience to clients. We felt safe at all times. It is not hugely challenging which makes this a great entry level for anyone who has not done canyoning before but want to be deep in nature and the waterfalls. This trip will certainly get you into the heart of the river and give you amazing views. Would book again! Thank you for an amazing trip
