Technical Canyoning Madeira Island

What is Canyoning?

Canyoning is hiking, jumping, leaping, rappelling, abseiling, swimming and sliding down a usually wet slot canyon, with pools of water, running water, and/or waterfalls. Technical Canyoning in this case is associated with technical descents, such as those that require rappels (abseils) and rope-work, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, and/or technical swims.

The location for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes with spectacular waterfalls. The locations to perform this sport are sometimes easy or extremely difficult, though emphasis of this sport is based on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty.

Levada do Alecrim

A video walking impression of the Levada do Alecrim (Levada of Rosemary). The walk went till its mother waterfall at Ribeira do Lageado. The starting point of this Levada walk is located near Rabaçal.

No background music was added to the film, but contains instead the original sounds of the surroundings during the walk … which gives a better impression of the environment.

The author warns that, even though he filmed with the camera fixed to his body, always walk the levadas in a safe way. Always keep your eyes on the path (and not looking at the viewer of a camera) when walking.

“Home” The Green-Awareness Movie

An environmental documentary with the title “Home” will be available across the globe today … in open-air spaces as well as theaters, TV, DVD, and the Internet at www.youtube.com/homeproject (till 14th of June).

We recommend that you watch this movie. It shows stunning aerial views of the earth’s natural wonders … a great soundtrack …. but at the same time it shows incredible views of a great deal of areas where pollution, earth disruption and catastrophic climate changes are taking place. The images are combined with a message …. “It’s too late to be a pessimist.

In 200,000 years on earth, … humanity has upset the balance of the planet. Humanity has barely 10 years to reverse the trend.

The film is created by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and the English commentary is narrated by Glenn Close.

It took almost three years to do this mega-movie, …. shot over 217 days in 54 countries, … providing 488 hours of footage.
