Canyoning Tour to Salto do Cabrito

Sao 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.
