We grew loving Madeira island!
The nature that surrounds us is just mindblowing!
It’s just incredible as an island so small can deliver so much beauty!
We always tell our customers that there’s an Island seen from the normal roads and there’s another Madeira that you will only find out when you get off the tarmac. We’re glad that these two found the time to experience it for themselves!
If you’re interested in a private tour or an off-road driving experience book a tour with us.

If you ever came to Madeira and you never tried a Poncha… Well, are you sure you’ve been on vacation or business in Madeira?
Poncha is one of “Madeira’s Must Try” drink, almost more important than Madeira Wine. After local beer, Poncha is the drink most people have! Everyone’s drinks it, so why don’t you?
Poncha is a local drink that people in Madeira drink since the first settlers came to Madeira.
Madeira in the beginning, was widely know for it’s sugar cane production.
Quite often the travelers we get to meet here tell us that they though Madeira Island was a destiny for old people.
They came here to get some sun and a nice weather all year long.
But then they realized that Madeira is much more than that, is for sure a place for adventure and, of course, a lot of fun!
Well, Madeira Island and Funchal offers excellent conditions to have a nice vacation for the older ones.
We have Five Star Hotels, good accessibilities, outstanding landscapes, marvelous viewpoints that you can get by car or bus, great weather all year round, nice food, etc.
Ok, but does this mean Madeira’s a place only for old people?
No, we don’t think so!
We just gathered 16 things that you will love to experience in Madeira! Youngster or not, you’ll love it!
Like a Buggy on steroids?
I was doing a private tour with a nice couple, and we have stopped to taste a Poncha after they have been driving Off-Road.
As I usually do, I asked them their opinion about the Off-Road Driving Experience.
One of them replied to me almost instantly:
“It´s like a Buggy on Steroids! “
I have to true with you, at first, it didn’t make much sense for me.
But then he care to explain:
- You drive the car also
- You get to places you can’t go in a normal car!
- Because the Panda is 4wd it can go to places where a Buggy wouldn’t dream
- You have always the guide with you, giving you the best of a local experience.
- You don’t have to get as dirty or wet as you would on a buggie.
- You have the guide always teaching you the best off-road techniques.
- You can go as a family, buggy only takes 2 people!
“So, it’s a Buggie ride but on steroids!” – They told us.
We have to agree.
We’ll let you a small video of of tour we did last Autumn, in São Jorge, in our Breathtaking Laurissilva Tour
