Hello all, this is the first I have posted on Canyon Collective, hope everything goes well I'm taking a trip to Portugal/Spain in June and want to do some canyoneering while there. I've lead a number of trips in Southern Utah, but haven't done anything outside of the state. If anyone has information on the following things I would appreciate any input -Where I can find Beta on canyons in Portugal/Spain -Are there any laws or regulations I have to consider when canyoneering in a different country -Any connections/people who might live in the region with skill that I could join up with My main point of interest is the Portuguese owned island of Madeira. I know it has some beautiful canyons with guided tours, but haven't found any place with beta that would help an individual plan a trip without tour guides. We will also be in the Southern half of Portugal and South West portion of Spain. I do speak spanish and portugese, although canyoneering lingo in those languages would be a new vocabulary I would need to learn.
