Full description
After being collected from your accommodation, you will depart for a fascinating and evocative aquatic hike. The hike itself takes place within several beautiful lakes created by the intense activity of the Alcantara River, created by unique basaltic lava flows.

The lava has cooled very quickly since surfacing, creating pentagonal and hexagonal prismatic shapes which recall the molecular structure of the materials that constitute it. After being fitted with a harness and helmet, you will go to the starting point of the canyon, where you will participate in your first 10-meter vertical jump. From here you can decide whether you wish to dive, or descend using a rope.

Some parts of the trek you will encounter have been entirely submerged in water, with a maze of paths leading you to the next jumps as you traverse long corridors and swimming pool. You will be able to admire and be captivated by the charm of the wild and untouched nature, as you navigate the cool fresh water.
