Canyoning in the Paiva river in Portugal


We went canyoning in the Paiva river in Portugal during a road trip in July 2021. We went on a tour with Clube do Paiva. The tour started in Arouca with a minibus ride to a small village. We were three guides and six tourists: Our family and a Dutch couple.

The agency equipped us with wet suits, helmets and harnesses. We wore trail running shoes or sandals. The water was fresh, and in the wet suits on a warm day, the temperature was comfortable.

It was fun to move through the river in wetsuits

Helle jumped instead of rapelling
Nikolaj also wanted to try jumping
The river bed was slippery and it required focus to keep the balance
