Your experience


  • Experience the beautiful landscape in a vehicle with open roof
  • Discover the laurisilva forest and the traditional thatched houses
  • Admire the third highest peak of Madeira at 1818 metres


Feel like a Madeiran and explore the east side in an open vehicle. Avoid the usual tourist places and discover the magical places that remain undiscovered for most visitors.

You will start your tour by first passing Machico and then following the old roads and off-roads through the Laurisilva Forest, which is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. You will have a wonderful view of the landscape until you reach Portela. There you will visit a rum factory and you can taste local drinks

Afterwards you will drive to Santana, where you will discover the typical traditional thatched houses and you can rest a little during a lunch break. Your guide will tell you more about the history and tradition of the region

In the afternoon you will pass Ribeiro Frio, where you will visit a trout farm. The last stop of your tour will be on the third highest mountain, the Pico do Areeiro, with 1818 meters. Afterwards you will return to your accommodation after an eventful day.
