Overview

The blue sky and sea, the green nature, and the waterfalls will be a constant on this journey.

Visiting rural villages such as Ribeira Brava, then heading to Ponta do Sol to cool off at the Ajos Waterfall (Angels). The paradisiacal scenery at Wind Lagoon is neatly hidden between the green vegetation valley, at Paul da Serra. You can even swim in the lagoon and get close to the waterfall. The tour contemplates a lunch break in the middle of nature (food and drinks not included).

We then head through rural and agricultural paths as we head towards Cabo Girão Skywalk, where you will enjoy a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean and the cities to the south of the island, while suspended from a glass platform at 580 meters high.

We leave towards the West of the Island already starting to use the paths that have been cut through the mountains from Campanário. there we will be able to observe the work done by our ancestors in the execution of one of the world heritage sites nominated by UNESCO, I am talking about the famous terraces of Madeira Island. This type of ancestral construction is nothing more than the construction of stone walls of volcanic origin to add to the cultivation area on the slopes of the island. After observing these constructions we will make a brief stop at the São Sebastião belvedere situated 170 metres above sea level and where there is an ideal point to observe the only valley in Madeira Island that cuts through it from north to south.

Unique experience with a lot of free walking
Joey_D, 24-07-2022
We had Victor as our Tour Guide, first of all, great company to hike in the mountains and in the jeep! Felt safe and funny at the same time. Second of all you see everything from an open-roofed Jeep, to get very good film material. We had a very unique and great day! Pick up at the hotel was no problem even it was on the other side of the island. We took 150 pictures in total, we saw so many great things!
Island tour

Absolutely brilliant day out! Viktor, our driver was a don’t of knowledge and explained loads about the island flairs and fauna. Great little cafe in the middle of the walk was a welcome respite for a drink and something to eat. The sights are breathtaking and the drive around in the UMM was a blast from the past! Thank you.
Wonderful

We were picked up at the hotel by an awesome jeep with an amazing driver, Victor. He made the day extraordinarily fun for everyone and was a great guide. If you goin the spring, bring gear for cold, rainy, sunny and hot!
Perfect day

The tour started in the city of Porto Moniz under light rain, in a portugese 4WD car. We stopped several times in the way to the Levada so we could enjoy the views, plants and cows
