a journey trough local life

This ride is for the people who want to cover a bit more of the island, if you are coming by ship, I will cruise with you trough the town before we leave all the way up from sea level to 1818 mt high, to the highest peak of the island reachable by car! Taking the roads of the island, stopping whenever a good photo opportunity arises! In Pico do areeiro will stay as long as you wish, for a short walk (optional) on the mountain slope, just before we begin our descent to more conventional altitudes and reach Santana, where there are the tradicional houses from this area of island thatched- triangle shaped , and even visit a genuine one with 240 years before we return! We could include a good local meal or something lighter and return trough the coastal villages of the northeast coast

So on this day you will get island mountain in morning sea in the afternoon :)


Starting from Funchal, heading to pico do Areeiro, then santana, and coming back on the coastal roads in the afternoon So on this day you will get island mountain in morning sea in the afternoon :)

A Recent Review of this tour

What a great day spent with Nicolau exploring Madeira ! I was taken to places I couldn't have got to without hiring a car , ordered a delicious lunch with glass of wine and entertained with explanations of all things Madeiran along the way . Thanks for what is clearly going to be the highlight of my trip
