Product Image
Walk along the old royal footpaths, partake in a delicious rum and wine tasting, and rub elbows with the locals during this exciting 4x4 trek of Madeira Island.

Hop into a 4x4 vehicle with an open-top roof and get ready to explore some of the highlights of Madeira Island! Your adventure will take you to the Portela area and into the native forest, designated a UNESCO natural heritage site in 1999. This enchanting park is known the world over as having the best conserved Laurissilva of its kind. Enjoy the tranquility of this primitive forest as it surrounds you!

While on tour you will follow off-road tracks for roughly 20 minutes and pass by or be driven through the royal footpaths that were used by the locals to cross the islands as they carried their goods. Down in the villages you will learn about the history, culture, and traditions of the people as you visit the rural areas and observe their day-to-day interactions. Stop at a rum factory for a delicious tasting of Madeira wine and rum crafted from locally farmed sugar cane.

Your guide will take you to Santa Cruz, Machico, Portela, Porto da Cruz, and Pico do Facho to observe majestic cliffs, old terraces, quaint villages, island flora, and fauna and much more.
