All about the Jeep East Tour.

Leaving Funchal, we’ll reach PICO DO ARIEIRO (1818 m.) for a fabulous 360-degree panoramic view of the Central Mountain Range. Next, we will make a stop at RIBEIRO FRIO Natural Park, where it will be possible to visit a trout farm, surrounded by a relict Tertiary forest called the Laurissilva – a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site. Here you can take a short walk along a levada in BALCÕES (45 minutes). In SÃO ROQUE DO FAIAL, we will experience a real “off-road” adventure! We will pass through PICO DAS PEDRAS up to the QUEIMADAS Natural Park at 980 metres. After lunch (not included) and crossing FAIAL, we will stop at PORTO DA CRUZ to visit the distillery where rum is produced from sugar cane with a 19th-century steam engine (unique in Europe). The last stop before returning to Funchal will be at the island’s east end, at PONTA DE SÃO LOURENÇO. Compared to the rest of the island, the contrasting landscape and the panoply of colours of the cliffs and rocks will surprise you. Don’t miss out! BOOK NOW!
