Come with us to the West of Madeira and experience a fantastic trip. First, we will take you to CABO GIRÃO, famous for being one of the highest sea cliffs in the world, rising imperiously 580 m. from the Atlantic Ocean. The magnificent views below your feet will fascinate you if you are brave enough to step on the glass viewing platform. We’ll then drive to the mountain pass of ENCUMEADA. The landscape is gorgeous! On the north of the island, stroll into the charming streets of SÃO VICENTE and admire the beautiful 17th-century church. Next, marvel at the imposing cliffs and waterfalls on the way to PORTO MONIZ, and once you get there, at the incredible natural pools that date back 6,500 years (free time for lunch and possibility of swimming). We’ll return to Funchal over the mountains by crossing the flat PAUL DA SERRA. The views of the countless ravines and valleys dropping thousands of feet below will awe-inspire you. We will make our last stop at the lovely fishing village of CÂMARA DE LOBOS and see what inspired Winston Churchill to paint there. Book your place now!
