Description

We’ll take you on an adventurous full day trail running tour around the beautiful island of Madeira. And as we’ll traverse the idyllic landscapes of dense forests and high mountains along the coast of Atlantic Ocean, we’ll test ourselves and push our limits to complete this challenging 20kms+ run.

Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, the island of Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal and is a popular tourist destination due to its stunning landscape, pleasant climate and fascinating culture. The island is rich in biodiversity and many parts are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

We will begin this journey by picking you from your hotel. You can choose from a variety of available routes (20km or more)– from Porto da Cruz, Santana, Portela, Poiso or Machico.

Porto da Cruz is a beautiful village situated on the Northeast Coast of the island. This trail involves running through lush Laurissilva forest, soaking in the stunning views of the mountains and the ocean.

Santana is a picturesque route involving a run through the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It also takes you through the beautiful Laurissilva Forest.

Portela is a serene path which passes through lush forests and local irrigation channels commonly know as levadas.

Poiso is a high altitude route(1400m) which takes us through two types of forests, past firewood and descends to Ribeiro Frio before ascending back to Poiso.

Machico is a historic city and also the second most populous on the island. This trail provides stunning views of the houses and buildings erected against the vast expanses of the ocean. The Pico do Facho viewpoint overlooks the beautiful city, before passing through rails and levadas.

Choose any of these routes for a truly unique experience on the beautiful island of Madeira. Book Now! And if you are looking for something more relaxed, check out this easy half-day trail running tours in Madeira.

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
