Private East and Peaks 4x4 and Santana
Make the very most of your day in the natural beauty of Madeira with this exciting excursion along the island's southeast coast.
Go off the beaten path to Machico, Madeira's first capital city; see the bay where the Portuguese landed in 1419/20, then follow the ancient royal footpath that will lead you to some of the oldest terraces of the island. Admire the spectacular geometry of these terraces overlooking beaten tracks crisscrossing the lush forest floor.
In the quaint municipality of Santana you will be greeted by traditional stone houses with their steep, thatched triangular roofs. Stop at the Vereda das Funduras with its magnificent trail that winds through the mountain range, offering excellent views of the Porto da Cruz parish.
Along the way you will climb Madeira's 3rd highest peak to the town of Pico do Arieiro where you can breathe in the fresh air at 1,818 meters above sea level. Stand in the observation area and peer down at the clouds below as the bright sun warms your back.
This full-day private tour is rich in culture and breathtaking landscapes that are second to none. Don't miss out, book now!
