Journey to East Lava Pools and the West

Madeira is a true photographer's paradise and this full-day tour from Funchal will give you plenty of opportunities to capture memories of a lifetime. This family-friendly tour takes you from the village of Serra de Agua and serene beaches to the UNESCO forest and Porto Moniz.

Your adventure starts as you view the charming countryside of Madeira while you travel to the secluded village of Serra de Agua in an open-roof 4 x 4 or an open-roof minibus. Your expert guide will take you over cobblestone streets and farming roads as you pass by the UNESCO forest. Enjoy a 20-minute walk along the levadas (water channels) and admire the gorgeous scenery.

Head down to Porto Moniz and soak in the warm, caressing waters of the Madeira Sea. Relax on the black, sandy volcanic beach or take a dip in the nearby lava pools. From there you will hug Madeira's northwest coast and be rewarded with amazing views of the high mountains, cliffs and waterfalls.

Book this tour from Funchal now to enjoy breathtaking views of Madeira that you can capture and hang on your living room walls.

Our group was picked up at the port, only a few steps away from the ship and off we went. We did the 8 hour day and started for the mountains right away and went off road thru some "roads" to the top of the clouds. Our guide, Nuno, was very informative. We stopped for lunch and drinks included and went to a park & Nuno took us thru many hillside villages and waterfalls. We had a party of 8 in the car, 3 very large guys with us, so it was very very tight...altho we could stand up view. If your party are big people, stick with 6 per group.

Great guide. Glad we switch tours because of obnoxious person in scheduled group. Would have preferred half an island tour and time in the beautiful town for lunch and drinks.

Dinarte went out of his way to make this excursion one of the best my husband and I have ever taken! Took us to all the locations described plus some extras we really enjoyed as time allowed. Lunch had good food and excellent service! Book this tour you will not be disappointed!
