    We booked our canyoning experience through Madeira Adventure Kingdom. Great experience from start to finish. After being picked up in our hotel, a mini-bus took us into the mountains where we had to change into a neoprene suit and received the other canyoning equipment. Costume and equipment were of high quality. Very friendly staff. Although the weather was not the best, we had a great 2.5h of canyoning fun, ending with a death-ride. Most important for us was that nobody felt unsafe or forced to do anything he didn’t dare or want to do. Definitely a must-do activity!
