Madeira Tours & Levada Walks

A friend of mine is coming to Madeira soon and asked me to put together some suggestions for tours and levada walks. Either you plan to rent a car in Madeira, or you prefer to be guided, in this post you’ll find a way to get the most of the island by booking tours and walks.

Madeira Tours

When I travel I usually book my tours online with Get Your Guide. To help you get organized, I’ve divided the following tours by location: The capital-Funchal, East & West of Madeira, plus Porto Santo Island. Enjoy 🙂

FUNCHAL:

In Funchal there are lots of things to do, from guided walks through the history of Funchal to hop-in, hop-off Bus Tours or Dolphin Watching by boat, here’s what you can do:

 

By foot – Enjoy a slow pace walk in Funchal with a guide, listen, look & learn.
Walking Tour in Funchal centre

 

Walking Tour in Funchal + nice lunch in a historic building

By Tuk-Tuk – This is a fun way to get around! A 75 minutes ride will give you a nice perspective of the city

By Bus – Sit down, put your headphones on and stop at the points of interest. This is a good 3 in 1 option: 48 hours or 22 stops in Funchal+ Visit Câmara de Lobos City Bay + Shuttle bus to Cabo Girão

By Toboggan ride in Monte + Pico dos Barcelos & Nun’s Valley Yes, this toboggan ride in Monte is a must-do in Madeira! Besides that, you get to see one of the most beautiful valleys of Madeira- the Nun’s Valley and a 360º Sight of Funchal in Pico dos Barcelos

By Boat – Enjoy Dolphin watching in the comfort and the privacy of a luxury catamaran -Full review here.


EAST -MADEIRA:

Trekking lovers can walk the route PR8 – VEREDA DA PONTA DE SÃO LOURENÇO and see the beautiful easternmost point of Madeira

Walk to the highest peak of Madeira PICO RUIVO. There are several options to get there – choose what suits you best.

Go Snorkeling in Ponta de São Lourenço and swim in crystal clear waters!

Walk in PR9 – LEVADA DO CALDEIRÃO VERDE in Santana. One of the most famous levada walks in Madeira.

WEST – MADEIRA:

If you’re a wine lover, a wine tour is good way to discover the west of Madeira 😉

This blog talks about the island where I was born and live - Madeira, and my endless journey to discover the world until (one day, who knows) I get to visit Mars.
