Walking with a small company and with a very small group will make you enjoy this 4- to 5-hour activity on the Ponta de São Lourenço peninsula. Ponta de São Lourenço peninsula walk became more popular in the last years, this walk is perfect for  those who want to see a completely different island, don't want a too long walk or don't have time time for it (visitors which come on cruises for example)  With an almost lunar landscape (yes it was already filmed a sci-fi movie there, but that’s another story). Don’t let the small distance fool you, as this walk has its fair amount of up and downs, always surrounded by the slow clear ocean water. In the end, we will find casa do Sardinha were we will relax, have a picnic and for the one who dares, take a  refreshing swim

Amazing sunrise hike and swim experience

This was our first visit to Madeira and our anniversary so wanted something special to celebrate. The communication from Nico was excellent to organise the trip. We were collected on time by our guide David and driven to a look out point at Ponta de Sao Lourenço to watch the sunrise. Then there was a short trip to start our hike. We took our time and stopped at view points on the way up with a short snack and sun cream break before the final ‘summit’ . The route definitely challenged me (I’m nearly 50!) and there were points that felt quite narrow although there is a railing in many places. We were so proud and pleased to complete it. If you have vertigo it will challenge you ! On the way back we swam in the sea which was really refreshing. The hike back to the van was just as spectacular. David took us to a viewpoint high above Mâchico and then for a Poncha before returning home. I would definitely recommend for a fabulous hike and overall experience
It was amazing

This was one of the best holidays we had. A week full of interesting places, hiking and the best guides. We totally recommend Nico and David and if we go back we will organize for sure other excursions with them. Very professional, friendly and easy to talk to. We felt like friends from the beginning.
They have provided many options for tours helping us decide on the best to make the most of our trip.
Very nice hike

To start the day with a beautiful sunrise above the clouds, the guide is attentive to our needs and very friendly. The panoramic view is amazing at the top. I highly recommend !
