Immerse yourself in the Laurissilva Forest and the infinite waterfalls of Madeira. Wander along the scenic tracks and enjoy nature at its most magical. Ready for an unforgettable adventure?


This is the island of eternal spring, with high mountains rising up from the deep blue ocean. Lava from the ancient craters shaped the natural pools that today feed the aqueducts which filter rain water.

We will enjoy all this and much more on our tour of the green north western region of Madeira. Are you ready to get lost in the genuine indigenous forests?

After collecting you, we will head to the Serra de Água, a breath-taking steep valley flanked by impressive mountains where you can enjoy the contrasting views of the peaks and the immense plateau the characterizes the island.

We continue our journey to the first terrace – Encumeada. There will head deep into the immense laurisilva forest and enjoy the ocean views from high up. You will feel the rush of adrenaline as we follow the ancient forest tracks, before arriving at Ginjas, our next stop.

Long trails will guide us through the tropical jungle and the sound of the birds, which becomes very striking in Paul da Serra, will make you feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life.

In Fanal, we will continue enjoying the ethereal dance of the waterfalls just before they merge into the sea. In Porto Moniz we will see the genuine lava remains which have created the most beautiful pools in the world.

It will give you goose bumps to realise that is the remains of a volcanic eruption which separates the huge expanse of the Atlantic Ocean from some tranquil salt pools.

After a complete day, we will begin the return journey and drop you at the same pick-up points.
