Your experience


  • Go on an all-day adventure tour by jeep
  • Visit Santana and Santo da Serra
  • Enjoy great views from the "Picco do Facho" viewpoint


From Funchal you drive to the north of the island through the Ribeiro Frio Natural Park, which is located in a steep valley surrounded by beautiful mountains. Here you take a small levada hike to "Balcões (balcony)". A quiet walk along the levada of Serra do Faial. You walk for about 30 minutes on a flat path to the Balcões viewpoint; the reward is an incredible view over the valley.

Then take an easy and spectacular off-road road to Santana. One of the most famous tourist areas on the island of Madeira. Famous for its small triangular houses built with natural stone and straw. These have served the locals for centuries as stables and shelters. The surrounding mountains are dominated by the Laurissilva Forest, which has been classified by UNESCO as a "World Heritage Site".

Then you will go to Santo da Serra for an unforgettable experience in the "Parque Ribeira Primeira", a unique and special place in the middle of nature, offering a relaxed atmosphere. This environment with lots of pure water is perfect for trout. Here you can fish if you want to have your own trout for lunch (Not Inc.).

Finally, we descend through Morena, where we have a breathtaking view over Santa Cruz and Ponta de São Lourenço, natural colors of great beauty.
