The Baptism of Canyoning will last approximately 2:30 hours. At the end, we will exchange clothes and walk another 30 minutes to Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo. When we get to the Fajã, let's go for a swim in the lagoon. Here the famous clams are reproduced and you can find many species of fish. After a refreshing bath, it's time for lunch (you can taste the clams, it´s extra program).
After lunch, we will walk around the Fajã to visit the church and learn about some facts of the place. By mid-afternoon we will go to the Cavern of Poio, as the locals call it, to make a visit to this volcanic cave (optional) with a fresh water lagoon inside and with tide.
We offer 3 options for leaving Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo: on foot or by boat.
Walking – it is a pedestrian trail of about 5 km along the coast. It is 1 hour hiking approximately;
Boat - Our boat will be waiting for us at the exit of the cave. We will have to prepare ourselves for the exit by boat. Everyone has to leave by swimming, except for those who do not know how to swim and children. These will be transported in a support boat, along with our equipment. Another high point of this adventure. On the boat, we will continue along the north coast of the island to the tip of the Topo, where we will pass between the islet and the eastern tip of the Island of Sao Jorge. We will continue along the south coast of Sao Jorge Island to the village of Calheta, observing the Fajas by the sea and the waterfalls that paint the slope of the island.
Minimum 6 px for boat tour.
If the conditions at the sea are unsafe we will leave to Fajã dos Cubres (5 km) by quad bike..
Warning: There are many groups that travel together, as well as families, who choose these two programs, "Caldeira Adventure Plus" and "Caldeira Adventure" for the same day. Halfway through the programs these groups join together to have lunch in Faja da Caldeira of Santo Cristo and finish the program together.
