Canyoning Tour to Salto do CabritoSao Miguel island
Futurismo has this ability to create worlds parallel to the usual world, moments that escape from everyday life, escape the known life, and introduce us to a dimension of privilege:
Waking up on a bright morning, climbing a trail through the woods and stories, and witnessing the awakening of things in all their splendor.
At the top of the river, to be able to launch, like birds, even mirrors of water, translucent and refreshing, which welcomes us like a glass of energy and vigor!
A true saga of adrenaline and adventure, under the experienced instructions of the guides – in the temperate climate of the Azores, the immersion in these wells that open in the beds is a blessing.
At Salto do Cabrito we will follow one of the longest watercourses on the island, interspersed by intense green and waterfalls, hitting our breathlessly clear atmosphere.
A magnificent waterfall
The waterfall Salto do Cabrito is another one of the many natural phenomena of São Miguel island. For those who like hiking, this beautiful trail of about 4km gives us the feeling of being at one with nature.
Surrounded by green
The trail starts next to the Pico Vermelho geothermal plant, on a dirt track, flanked by incense, acacia, cryptomeria and eucalyptus.
Crystal clear water & lush vegetation
Salto do Cabrito is well-known for its beauty, and also as a canyoning route!
It is possible to observe many endemic flora species on this hike.
Get ready to go down the stream and enjoy some beautiful waterfalls at one of the longest watercourses on the São Miguel island.
