Madeira, a string of volcanic islands claimed by Portugal in 1419, offers tourists a wealth of adventure and beauty. The lush island contains a diverse and colorful plant biome and the jagged peaks that make up the island horizon are perfect for hikers and explorers.
The coastal city of Funchal is one of Madeira's best-known locations, in large part thanks to its Guinness World Record-holding firework celebrations that usher in the New Year. But the fun isn't just limited to New Year's Eve!
Throughout the month of June, Funchal rejoices and celebrates the Atlantic Festival, one of the islands most important events. Three local companies vie for the coveted trophy signifying the best fireworks display on the island and delectable delicacies and beverages are seemingly endless.
Enjoy a summer celebration unlike any other during your June stay in Funchal, where the fireworks are world-renowned and the experience is unparalleled.
