Join certified mountain guide Marco Abreu on a thrilling off the beaten path hiking adventure on the stunning Poço das Pulgas trail in Madeira Island!


1/2 Day




  • Discover a beautiful off the beaten path hiking route in Madeira Island!
  • Enjoy a challenging hike in an uncrowded spot surrounded by stunning nature.
  • Catch your breath as you catch sight of the lovely 'Poço das Pulgas' waterfall.


Would you like to discover an off the beaten path trail in the lovely Madeira? Then join me on this thrilling half-day adventure and discover the beautiful landscapes of this magical island!

The Poço das Pulgas Footpath is located to the north of the island and is an uncrowded hiking path in one of the most stunning spots in Madeira. The narrow trail is circular and goes through hilly terrain along the coast of Ribeira da Camisa, leading to a breathtaking waterfall and a native forest. On this half-day adventure, I will lead you through this remote hiking haven.

This program takes place on Tuesdays. You will be picked up at the hotel in the morning and we will drive to the starting point of our hike. Keep in mind that the footpath is 8.5km long and the terrain is demanding. Therefore, it is important that you are physically fit, that you have prior hiking experience, that you do not suffer vertigo and that you enjoy adrenaline-filled adventures! Of course, I will be there every step of the way to help and guide you.

So, are you ready for a thrilling hike in Madeira? Then book your place now and get ready for an amazing day in the Poço das Pulgas hiking trail.

I also offer easy day hikes in Madeira, if you would like a more relaxed program!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
