ECDC canyoning association Portugal Facebook cover

Espeleo Clube and Descenso de Canones (EC/DC) was established in 2005 by a group of dedicated people practicing caving and canyoning across Spain. The Portuguese association is a non-profit organisation since 2012, federated in the FCMP. EC/DC Portugal has the mission to develop the sport of canyoning in the country (mainland and islands).

The club’s board is responsible for all actions aiming to promote canyoning. Main objectives are the technical and scientific courses for beginners, autonomous and advanced canyoners as well as competitions, canyoning meetings and leisure travels for all members.
