A fabulous days Adventure

Our guide Nuno picked us up at 8:30 at our hotel, in a great Land Rover Defender, and said the jeep was all ours, we were the only two on the tour, fabulous. Having been on Green Devil trips on previous holidays to the island, we knew we were in for a treat.
We set of along the west coast passing Camara do Lobos and down to R Brava, where we explored this charming town.
Then we climbed into the interior of the island, with Nuno giving excellent commentary along the way. The twists and turns and sheer steepness is breath taking.
At about 1100metres we ventured off road into the eucalyptus Forrest’s. Having been raining it gave the Defender a torrid time, as the track was slippery, Nuno battled to keep us going in a straight line~ great fun.
As we revved and twisted along the dirt track , our guide would stop and pick wild herbs such as oregano and rosemary to sniff, along with wild flowers and fruits.
Due to the weather we were unable to enjoy the roof being opened, but it did not spoil our adventure. We made it to the plateau, some 1600M above sea level and stopped for a well deserved poncha, which had been warmed ( very nice).
The rain had certainly poured down on the plateau, as makeshift ponds and lakes had appeared at the side of the road.
We rolled into a small village for lunch, a wonderful bowl of food with wine ( pork and bean stew) followed by the best cheesecake we have ever eaten.
With our bellies full we continued the “ Grates of Fire “ tour. Stunning scenery and waterfalls were a plenty.
We went from the most western point, Ponta do Pargo, all along the west coast, taking in
Paul do Mar, calheta, Madalena do Mar and ponta do sol.
It was a fabulous day, made so by our guide Nuno, and of course the trusty Land Rover.
Highly recommend Green Devil for your Madeira adventures. Thank~you
Fun trip

Southwest part of Madeira might be less scenaric than other parts. But we had a lot of fun as our driver was Nelson. Fellow travelers were all having sense of humor. 4x4 drive was bumpy. I recommend you wear dark coat. We got splashed from the muddy water. My white jacket turned brown. The weather was cloudy and cold in the mountains but we still enjoyed it very much. Walked through waterfall was the highlight of our journey.
Well worth taking

Juan our driver was very knowledgeable about the plant life, with his stops to check his 'garden'where he came back with herbs growing wild on the island. The spectacular scenery was breath-taking. When anyone mentions massages we will be reminded of the bone shaking off road sections. It was truly a fantastic way to see the less well travelled parts of the island.

Just had an amazing day out. Truly breathtakingly stunning scenery. Great fun off roading and getting to places you normally couldn't visit. Highly informative and recommended.

Picked up on time outside our hotel. There was 3 other couples on our trip so it was a full jeep. Once we got off the main roads, the top of the jeep was removed and we could stand up while off road. What an adventure!! This trip had lots of off road sections which were a bit crazy but very enjoyable. It was very dusty and our clothes got dirty so don’t wear your best gear! The views were amazing. We stopped in a couple of small villages along the coast where we could get out and walk for a bit. We ate lunch in a traditional restaurant which cost only €12 for 3 course with drinks.
Our driver, Valtmart, was excellent and made the trip that much better for us. He was knowledgable and very funny.
We really enjoyed our day out with this company.
