Overview of your Madeira tour:

The East part of Madeira is in my opinion, the richest in culture! Villages on the east were until 1930, isolated from each other. Between villages, there is always a deep valley with a stream or a huge cliff and transportation was made using footpaths and boats. In the East we have the highest mountains on the island, one of them, Pico do Areeiro (1818m) reachable by car, offering overwhelming views. We'll walk and drive through our magical Laurell forest, using forest trails and the ancient royal path only accessible on foot or all-terrain vehicles. Years visiting Santana, and talking with locals gave me the knowledge to offer a nontouristy tour where we will visit the charming antique thatched houses, genuine ones where locals live, not the artificial ones selling postcards and flowers in the city center. Santana is in my opinion the most beautiful Council the island, it's the biggest farming region, with the highest mountain, deep native forest and some fascinating hikes and stunning views.

Your Madeira tour itinerary

-1st stop will be made in Pico do Areeiro, 3rd highest mountain on the Island(1818 meters). To get there we will use some of the old royal footpaths and old roads, only possible with a 4WD car. -After that, we will stop in Ribeiro Frio to visit one of the most beautiful Sightseeing points on the island, Balcões, using an old Levada canal footpath to reach it. -We will continue our journey thru Faial, and Santana visiting its ancient thatched houses and some hidden spots away from mainstream tourism, it's the council where we will do more stops. Next, we stop in Porto da Cruz visiting the last, still in use, steam Rhum Factory, then Portela with the dazzling view over the Northeast and the emblematic Eagle Rock. Caniçal, the eastern peninsula, and Machico where the colonization of the island started will be our last stops. Depending on the weather, we can invert the tour for your benefit. The tour can be customized according to your preferences, please inquire. Join me in this unforgettable experience!
