Hiking Guide

I am a certified hiking guide, trail running and sky running athlete. I was born and raised on the island of Madeira, Portugal, and I know all the trails here like the back of my hand.

Since I was a child, I love being in the middle of nature. Madeira Island is blessed with beautiful landscapes and a wide variety of endemic flora and fauna. I like to show you my clients the natural beauty of the island, tell them about its history and make them feel like locals, with wonderful tours, at their own pace.

As a trail running and sky running athlete, I have participated in many races of the world circuit, and I have represented the Portuguese team in European championships and World Championships several times. One of my most important results was in 2015, when I won the MIUT in Madeira115 km.

Come and enjoy the best spots in Madeira!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
