About the trip in Madeira
With its mild climate throughout the year, subtropical vegetation and 2000km of trails, the Portuguese island of Madeira is an ideal destination for lovers of the great outdoors and good food.
From the lunar tip of Sao Lorenzo, to the primary forest of the plateaus, passing through the Picos - the high peaks of the island, this self- guided walking holiday in Madeira consists of easy itineraries, accessible to all, allowing you to explore some of the most remarkable sites. Along the way, you will inevitably come across the levadas, the irrigation canals that allow the development of subsistence farming, which in turn has given rise to a tasty and copious home cooking cusine. And it is these culinary delights that we highlight on this trip: a clever mix of easy walks, punctuated by gourmet breaks to enjoy a glass of Madeira wine or an ‘espetada’ (a meat skewer often served at festivals).
In the evening, in the comfort of your charming hotel, you can relax after a day on the beautiful trail, lounging by the pool or sipping a traditional ‘poncha’ whilst looking out at the ocean. This is a walking holiday with a gentle rhythm: easy hikes and epicurean delights for a complete discovery of the island.
