Great Canyoning Experience in Madrid
It was an awesome activity. Gabriel was very good in responding to my inquiries and also was on time for the pick up. He had great customer service. Our guide was very patient and helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dreampeaks.

Idyllic first time Canyoning experience for Caroline’s big 50
We went canyoning with dream peaks while on a 5 day 50th celebration in Madrid. We met Sergio who took us up the mountain, were given wet suits and helmets and after a short climb we began the descent down the cliff face. Sergio’s English was really good and the instruction was easy to understand. Nothing overly strenuous so it’s easily an activity for most ability levels. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We can not thank Sergio enough, a really pleasant chap and expert in his field. A refreshing cool down from the heat of the city. Big thanks to Gabriel Sergio and the team!

Great mini trip
We went canyoning with dreampeaks while on a weekend stag do in Madrid. I shared a few emails with Gabriel beforehand who told us exactly what to bring, where to wait for pick up and the stag went for free. We got picked up really close to our hotel which was great because we didn’t know the area at all! The 40-50min drive gave us a chance for a quick nap as we hadn’t really slept the night before. When we got there and met Sergio who took us up the mountain, we were given wet suits and helmets and after a short climb we began the descent down the cliff face. It’s a bit slippy so trainers are definitely recommended but the water is refreshing when it’s hot so don’t worry about overheating in the wetsuit! Sergio’s English was really good and the instruction was easy to understand. Nothing overly strenuous so it’s easily an activity for most ability levels. We thoroughly enjoyed it and while it’s best to leave your phone and cameras in the van we were sent loads of pictures of the experience afterwards.
Big thanks to Gabriel and the team!

Canyoning in Madrid
This was our first time trying canyoning and it was fantastic! Our guide was Sergio and he did a great job teaching us what to do. When planning the trip, Gabriel was very quick to respond to emails and answer all of our questions. Since a group tour was not available on the day we wanted, he organized a private tour. He even arranged for our guide to pick us up from our hotel in Madrid. The whole experience was great and I would highly recommend it!
