Tour Details

Spend the day in Madeira, a popular tourist spot and island that is the emergent top of a volcano in the Atlantic Ocean. See the town of Funchal from the Christ-King statue and visit the village of Machico and Portela. Stop for lunch in Santana, sample rum in a sugar cane factory and witness Ponta de São Lourenço from the port of Caniçal during this full day tour.

The excitement begins with a ride up to the statue of Christ-King at the Ponta do Garajua viewpoint where you can savor birds-eye views of the town of Funchal below. From there you will pass Funchal by a series of narrow streets and continue across cobblestone and forest-lined roads as you make your way toward the village of Machico and Portela.

Wind up the serpentine roads to reach the enchanted village of Santana with its many small, triangular, traditional thatched houses made out of natural stone. While up here, enjoy a sumptuous lunch amid stunning views. Stop at a sugar cane/rum factory to taste local brandy and Madeira firewater - a clear, white rum that contains 50% alcohol by volume.

Your journey will come to a close with a stop in Caniçal, the principal cargo port in Madeira. Observe the locals and a fantastic view of Ponta de São Lourenço, a breathtaking nature reserve on the Atlantic Ocean with volcanic rock formations.
