For the more fearless the island offers ideal conditions for the practice of adventure activities, and even radical ones, such as Rappel, Slide, Canyoning and Coasteering.

They can be integrated activities in mountaineering, climbing, canyoning, cascading and other vertical activities. The Slide can allow you to get a feel close to flying, where in a privileged location you can enjoy the landscapes of the island.
Canyoning is a sporting and recreational activity that consists of the descent of embedded water courses and with strong slopes, using abseiling, jumps, detrepes or toboganes to cross the obstacles. This water and mountain activity allows you to discover fascinating landscapes and includes a very attractive recreational component. Although there are only three courses in Terceira, it is worth mentioning the high interest of Agualva’s canyoning, which is technically easy and short but very beautiful and capable of providing a great value experience. Currently there are companies on the island that provide experiences of this activity, including baptism of canyoning.
Coasteering is one of the most fun and unique ways to get to know the coast of Terceira island where you can try various activities such as swimming, climbing, waterfalls and hiking. You may know places that would otherwise be inaccessible. On the island, there are two perfect spots to practice this activity, where you can get in touch with marine life and explore some of the many sea caves that Terceira has to offer.
These are activities that must be practiced with the maximum security reason why it is advised to be carried out with a company of the specialty.
