The course of your trip!

Day 1: Bem vindo - Welcome arrival in Madeira.

Arrival in Madeira. We pick you up at the airport and take you to your booked hotel. We meet for the meeting in the small local bar Rodrigues.

Day 2: Bike tour: Paul da Serra - Ribeira da Janela

On the plateau to Ribeira da Janela

The bus takes us to the Paul da Serra plateau. Here we have fantastic views of the valley of Ribeira Brava, São Vicente and the Massif Central. We bike under laurel trees that are several hundred years old. The descent to Ribeira da Janela is an experience. From there, take the transfer bus back to Caniço de Baixo.

Day 3: Bike tour: Portela - Fajã dos Rolos

On narrow paths through the northeast

The transfer bus takes us to Fajã dos Rolos. On forest and forest paths, it goes in short, steep sections through laurel and eucalyptus forest. Always with a view of the highest mountains in Madeira. We drive along the Levada via Camacha to Caniço de Baixo.

Day 4: Bike tour: Santana

Deep gorges and spectacular coastal descents

We start in Faial and we cycle up to the Levada do Caldeirão Verde and further through the Parque Florestal das Queimadas. Many viewpoints with wonderful views reward the effort. Past the Casa de Colmo in Santana, our path leads downhill on the first path, which united all villages in Madeira, to the sea.

Day 5: Free

You can visit Funchal or do one of the many other activities. Try something you always wanted to do like canyoning, coastering, tandem flying or stand up paddle. You can also enjoy the day by the swimming pool and relax.

Day 6: Hike: Levada do Furado from Ribeiro Frio to Parque Ribeira Primeira

with delicious trout food at the end of the tour

After a worthwhile detour to the lookout point dos Balcões, from where you have a wonderful view of the mountains of Madeira, you return to the Levada do Furado (trout levada).

We walk through lush vegetation and dense 'Laurissilva' forest. Again and again we have wonderful views of deep gorges and valleys in the area. At the end of the hike it goes to the Parque Ribeira Primeira. A trout couldn't be fresher!

Day 7: Hike: Ponta de São Lourenço

We hike through a barren landscape characterized by tuff and basalt.

The easternmost part of Madeira Island is a nature park with a fantastic panoramic view. Tuff and basalt shimmer in the sunlight and transform the bizarre rock formations. The reflections and lighting effects created by the incidence of the sun's rays are a great photo opportunity. Rare plants accompany us on this unique hike.

Day 8: Adeus - See you soon

Departure or extension. We take you to the airport and say thank you again for being our guest
