Canyoning, History


Madeira island is a canyoning paradise!

Autonomous Region of Madeira is a part of Portugal, located on the north/west side of Africa, opposite Morocco and in between Casablanca and Marrakesh, 320 miles away from the mainland. The 4 islands that create an archipelago (Madeira, Porto Santo and the Desertas) were uninhabited and claimed by Portuguese sailors in 1419. Now a days it is a place full of life and tradition, a very popular year-round resort visited by 1.5 million tourists and one of the best locations for a canyoning holiday. The climate is warm and subtropical. The main island of Madeira, having a volcanic shape and form, is full of trees, very high cliffs, various beaches with pebbles and amazing waterfalls.

The Meeting Canyoning Madeira is an international event that offers global canyoning community the opportunity for a unique gathering full of fun, adventure, getting in touch with old and new friends and… great canyoning experiences.
