Northwest of Madeira: Porto Moniz and the lava pools in an open jeep
great

Hi, Pick up directly at the ship worked out great Our guide Valdemar not only showed us great places, but also told us a lot about the area. We were able to see a lot on this tour and take great photos. We were very lucky with the weather, so we could drive the whole tour with the top down. On our AIDA Canary Islands tour, this was an absolute highlight.

The trip with Valdenar was unforgettable. Thanks for that. We have seen so many great places and received information about them. Great! We would go on another tour with Valdemar at any time. The ride in an open jeep through the forest into the mountains is just awesome...Off-road pure!

It was a great trip. We have seen and experienced a lot, also the children were totally happy (10, 11 and 13 years). You've never been bored either. Our tour guide Spencer was world class, totally friendly and competent. We can only recommend it.

Spencer- our guide, was very punctual ! He spoke very good German despite being British. He had a lot of experience... and has been able to explain a lot to us! Despite the bad weather the tour was beautiful. Again and again!

Very nice excursion in an open jeep. Many areas are also served, that aren't so crowded by tourists.

A great tour. Not only Porto Moniz and the lava pools. Off-road into the mountains and great information about the island and the botany. It was a lot of fun.

Your experience

Highlights

  • Walk along forgotten roads and enchanted alleys through beautiful little villages in the north of Madeira
  • See the famous "Levada" waterfalls
  • Relax in the warm water of the lava pools, which are so unique to the island

Description

We will pick you up in the morning at your hotel or guesthouse and take you out into the breathtaking Madeira hills to the village of Serra de Água.

Walk along forgotten and enchanted roads through the historic alleys of the small village and see the forest and farm tracks leading directly into the UNESCO protected forest, past the beautiful "levadas" - waterfalls.

Arriving in Porto Moniz you have the unique chance to enjoy warm sea water in one of the lava pools that are so special to the island. Afterwards you must not forget to visit the adjacent black sand beaches. It's an amazing experience.

The excursion ends with a visit to São Vicente. On the way there you have numerous opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the island - waterfalls, high mountains, steep cliffs - and take pictures from the open jeep.
