This tour begins in Funchal, following the old streets towards the Cristo Rei Statue.
From this viewpoint, we have an excellent panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, the Garajau Nature Reserve, part of the Bay of Funchal and the Caniço de Baixo.
We will continue our excursion to Santa Cruz, where we will begin the dizzying climb up to the mountains, passing agricultural trails and glimpsing small settlements almost hidden by the rugged terrain.
Along our ascent we will make stops for photos, short walks, enjoy breathtaking scenery, observe some waterfalls, and also, appreciate the scents of nature around.
Arriving at Santo da Serra, one of the oldest cities in the interior, which on Sundays is one of the most traditional markets with local products of local producers, you can buy everything from clothes, utensils, towels, live animals, vegetables and of course the our DELICIOUS tropical fruits growing around here, and local food sold locally as garlic butter with garlic butter at LOCAL PRICES!
At the next stop we will enjoy a meal prepared with wood, in the middle of nature. You will have the opportunity to taste the freshest fish in the region (grilled trout), the FAMOUS Beef skewer on bay stick “Espetada Madeirense”, Portuguese Stew, Spare Ribs, Duck Rice, Typical Feijoada or even a Vegetarian Salad, all in a very relaxed atmosphere and preferably at open air.
Afterwards, we will stop at the Portela viewpoint, located between Porto da Cruz and Machico, to observe one of the most beautiful landscapes of Madeira.
From here we have a great view of the Port of Cruz and the Penha d’Águia, which, although located on the North Coast of the island, belong to the municipality of Machico. We can still see Cortado area in Santana.
Afterwards, we’ll go again in off-road towards Machico, crossing tropical vegetation, always with excellent views. Along our route, we will stop at all the good photo opportunities in an exciting and relaxing safari-style open jeep tour.
After the off-road, we can stop for a SWIM at Banda d’Além beach, located in Machico Bay, which is surprising for its fine yellow sand, unusual on this island and imported from other places or instead make a stop at the Pico do Facho viewpoint where we will have a wide view over the Machico valley, the peaks of the central part of the island, the Desertas Islands and Ponta de São Lourenço.
