With its 11 waterfalls, multiple jumps, ziplines, deep ponds and lush green vegetation, Tamarin falls remains one of the most beautiful canyon of the Island that will suit the beginner to the hardcore adventurer.

DISCOVERY

Abseiling in the spray

This  trip is the most popular of our activities. It is easy, fun and accessible to all. The trip starts with a small hike to the first waterfall of 15m where participants get the first feel of abseiling for real. The group then crosses the water pond and boulder walk down the river to reach the second waterfall: an impressive 40m drop into the canyon. After landing on a small rocky platform everyone can have several go at the high speed Zip-line landing in water.
The exit is a 10min scramble uphill and another 10 min walk where delicious lunch awaits.

End Time: 1430 / 1530 hrs after lunch

FULL DAY

This trip is for the fit and adventurous with a reasonable fitness level.  If you who have done the Half day trip with us before or any other canyons and have abseiled more than 20m, if you are an able swimmer and can hike with the equipment on your back, then this is for you.
