Hiking week on Madeira

Experience Madeira actively - with enjoyment and comfort

Madeira invites you to go hiking. The different impressions on our hikes are spectacular - an absolute experience that you will never forget again. The plants and floral world is unique.

There is something for every hiker - from the levadatour, the royal tour around the Pico Ruivo or the breathtaking view on the coastal walk.

You walk along magnificent bays, spectacular views, and lush vegetation and can indulge in Madeira 12 months in the year of your passion, hiking.

It's always time to stop in a quaint pub, recharge your batteries with a Brisa passion fruit or pure bica and a prego no prato or a piece of cake, and at the end of the hike the traditional poncha is compulsory.

We choose from a variety of hikes 5 different tours. You will get to know the island of Madeira from its most beautiful side.

The walks take between 4 - 5 hours.
