Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in front of the northwestern coast of Africa. The main island is famous for its amazing natural areas and subtropical weather. These hikes will take place around Rabaçal and Fanal. One of the jewels of the trip will be the Laurisilva de Madeira, a very unique forest declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

On this trip, I’ll pick you up at 9 am and we’ll start our hike. The program has a duration of 8 hours, so I’ll drop you off at 5 pm. There are plenty of excellent hotels and different options for your accommodation on the island.

After the pickup, it will take us around 1.30 hours to reach the hiking point. On the way, we’ll make a stop near the sea coast. Then, we’ll enjoy hiking in a wonderful natural area where we’ll discover spectacular landscapes. For example, we’ll go across the Laurisilva forest and contemplate incredible waterfalls. Also, we may encounter some of the lovely local birds during the hike.

Although these are not very demanding hikes, keep in mind that you should have a good physical condition. Also, don’t forget to bring comfortable clothes and hiking boots.

So would you like to take part in this program? Then all you have to do is send the request and make your reservation. I’m sure you’ll love hiking across Madeira.
