MADEIRA ADVENTURE WEEKS
Characterized by a diverse vegetation and landscape, Madeira has a wide range of outdoor adventures to offer. Ideal for people who love being active outdoors whilst enjoying tranquility and relaxation at the same time. Discover marvelous walks and hikes along Madeira's unique Levada systems, take to the waters with kayaking and surfing or get adventurous on a fun canyoning trip in Madeira's rugged green landscape.
Madeira is the ideal place to combine outdoor adventures such as kayaking, canyoning and hiking with a relaxing holiday on beautiful beaches. Hardly anywhere else in a comparatively small space like this island in the Atlantic Ocean will you find such natural diversity. Lush forests, mountains over 1800m, a rugged coast in the North and with sandy beaches in the South, Madeira offers plenty of outdoor things to do. The capital Funchal in the South is the perfect base to start off your adventures all over the island. Short distances and innovative ways of transport make it easy to get around Madeira. There are the pedicabs taking you around Funchal, the cable car ride high above the capital towards Monte, the wicker sledge journey downhill from Monte, 4x4 jeep safaris through Madeira‘s nature reserves and boat trips to explore the coastline from the open sea to watch the many sea creatures inhabiting the waters around the Madeira Archipelago.
Besides all the fun activities there is a lot to discover above and under ground. Madeira‘s volcanic formation history left its traces that can be seen today. Perfect examples are the three highest mountains of Madeira - Pico Ruivo (1,862 m), the Pico das Torres (1,851 m) and Pico do Arieiro (1,818 m). Plenty of stunning walks will lead you to places with amazing views, right through Madeira‘s unique, lush green vegetation. In the caves of São Vicente you can admire the grotto and underground pond as result of a volcanic eruption.
Nature, outdoor adventures, tranquility, fantastic food and a rich culture - Madeira is the place where you find it all!
