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!
Don’t get me wrong, we love to welcome everyone in Madeira.
All of you are welcome!
We at Panda 4×4 Tours, believe that in the near future Madeira will be known as a place for active tourism, were you can have and do a bit of everything!
Maybe you’re reading this and you’re thinking Madeira’s a small island in the Atlantic.
It’s true. So small, everything is near by.
So much to do and see that you won’t be able to do everything in one week.
For us, this is one of the beauties of it! You can do a lot of things in one day!
We at Panda 4×4 Tours usually say to our costumers that we have 3 different kind of Madeira´s:
- The one you can see from the road (beautiful)
- The one you can see from the sea (spectacular)
- The one you can’t see from the normal paved road (mind-blowing)
We at Panda 4×4 Tours operate at the mind-blowing segment!
So, let us tell you a little bit about the Madeira that we love and only a few know.
Ok, we’re outdoor entusiasts! So, get ready!
If you want to experience things, rather than sitting by in the hotel, getting a tan, let us share with you a bit of what can you do/experience/try in Madeira:
- In Land:
- Off- Roading (you can have an Off-Road driving experience with us or some buggy company, or even do a regular Jeep Safari, if you want something not as challenging, we prefer that you choose us! Please! hahaha!).
- Walking/Hiking (You’ll see beautiful landscapes that you’ll never be capable of experience from the paved road, the traditional Levadas and other path).
- Mountain Biking ( Madeira is called the “royalty” of MTB, you’ll have different types of terrain, fast tracks, outstanding views, etc).
- Trail Running (Madeira is becoming one of the world’s pearls in the sport).
- Cannyoning ( Just try it, overcome your fear, we won’t even say anymore)
- Coastering ( A spin-off of the traditional cannyoning but along the cost)
- Paragliding (Madeira is even more beautiful from the above)
- Rock Climbing (Oh yeah, there’s very neat rocks to climb here)
- In Sea:
- Scuba Diving ( a lot of companies go to different diving spots, you could spend a week diving always in different places)
- Snorkeling (We tried it 2 years ago, and we can´t go to a beach anymore if we’re not able to do some snorkeling).
- Bodyboarding (#1: Did you know that Madeira has the best waves in Europe?)
- Surfing (#2: Did you know that Madeira has the best waves in Europe?)
- Stand Up Padle (#3: Did you know that Madeira has the best waves in Europe?)
- Wind-Surfing (Spetacular in the winter! So much speed!)
- Kayaking (You know what this is, we won’t explain it to you)
- Whale And Dolphin watching (We have several companies doing this, it’s marvelous).
We truly don’t know another place in the world where you can be at an highest peak in the morning and go scuba diving in the afternoon.
Or go surfing and off-roading and still go whale watching on sunset like we do in Madeira.
We know that you’re reading this and it seems to good to be true!
But, this is how we like to live here.
And we didn’t even told you about the nice food and drinks!
As you can see, Madeira for us, is a place for adventure and fun.
We know Madeira is right for people of all ages.
It’s all about the spirit!
So, come to us, and have one of those vacations!
We, at Panda 4×4 Tours are waiting for you!
