Full description
Begin this full-day 4x4 tour with a pick-up at your hotel in Funchal and travel deep into the southeast of Madeira. You’ll come to Machico town and the line that divides the north and south of the island. Take in breathtaking views of the Eagles Rock from Portela. Drive down, stopping in Porto da Cruz, which is the next must-see point. Visit a sugar cane factory, continue to the Faial coastline and then up to see the typical houses of Santana. These small straw-thatched triangular houses are emblematic of Madeira and intricate in their construction. Head down into the valley and through the forest to Riveiro Frio at an elevation of 1818 meters, the third-highest peak on the Island.

It was a very fun experience, especially during the off roads. Our guide also stopped us at a rum factory which was part of the tour, and we where given the opportunity to taste different rums. In addition, we also went high on a mountain where we could see everything below us and it was beautiful!

This was my best tour trip I have ever had. It’s very adventurous and José was spectacular as our guide. He would randomly stop in several places and show us the plants and fruit grown around the island. The people in the group were also great and I was very lucky to be in this tour with exactly these people. Lots of laughs, fun and the views were breathtaking. Thank you so very much for the wonderful time. I shall never forget this!
