Step by Step

Explore the northwest of Madeira with this excursion to Porto Muniz from Funchal, located almost an hour's drive away. A professional guide will accompany you on this private tour in the 4x4 vehicle, which can accommodate up to 8 people. On this tour, which lasts about eight hours, you will see various points of interest in the wonderful nature that surrounds this area. You will be able to do the tour at your leisure, as the transfer to and from your hotel is included.

The history of Madeira's volcanic origin dates back some 5 million years. The island was discovered by a trio of adventurous Portuguese sea captains, who named the island "Madeira" because it is a heavily forested island, and its capital, Funchal, because of the abundance of fennel in the area.

Take in the scenery on this tour and historical monuments such as Paul da Serra and Porto do Moniz. In the latter, you will have the opportunity to visit the natural pools. They are a great tourist and local attraction because of the tranquillity and the magnificent panoramic view you will have while refreshing yourself.

On this excursion you will also get out of the 4x4 vehicle to go on a guided walk through the forests of the mountain. And, weather permitting, you can soak your feet on the black sand beach of Seixal.

You will also have the opportunity to visit Paul da Serra, the largest plateau on Madeira Island, at an altitude of about 1,500 metres. It is the largest flat area of the volcanic island. On this plateau it is very common to find yourself above the fog. You will also find cow farms, which is very characteristic of this place.

    The experience was very good, we really enjoyed the wonderful natural landscapes and every explanation of the guide during the hike. A pity that the weather was not on our side that day.

    Great tour, with a lot of content about the history and culture of Portugal and with really wonderful places that everyone should visit at some point. More than recommended, it is a unique tour.
