For almost 1 ½ years now we live on the beautiful island of Madeira in the home office and therefore had the good fortune to get to know and love the island extensively. Therefore, we were able to experience the island from a completely different, the not touristy, but local side and discover secret regions and hikes that remain hidden in an ordinary 08/15 "guidebook vacation"... One thing to say, the island is not called the Hawaii of Europe without reason! Now I (Kiki) would like to organize an "off the beaten path - hiking week" in a small group (3-5 persons) to share with you the fascination and love for this island. A certain fitness level should be available for this, since the partial cross-country hikes definitely require this. Overall, however, everyone should do what he or she feels like doing and there is no "peer pressure". If one would rather spend a day at the sea or at the pool, then is absolutely fine. We will stay in a beautiful house in the south of the island (Calheta) with sea view, which has among other things a large pool with sun terrace. The location of the house guarantees beautiful sunsets. I will take care of the organization (rental car, hiking plans, airport transfers, etc.), so that you only have to take care of the mental processing of the unforgettable impressions of the tours. The tours will be determined relatively spontaneously, depending on the needs of the group and the current weather conditions (the weather can be very changeable). The island offers so incredibly beautiful and varied hiking opportunities for any weather that each hike will be an absolute highlight in itself. The cost of accommodation and my expertise acquired over the years is 899€ (depending on occupancy also in a double room) for the week. Community expenses (rental car, food) are shared relaxed via the app Splitwise. If you are interested and need more info, feel free to get in touch! :) Kind regards Kiki

The hike leads a hidden and beautiful valley in the center of Madeira. Along an aging levada, it takes us through a picturesque area that offers breathtaking views of the valley and the highest mountains of Madeira. Since this levada is partially no longer maintained, short but steep and unsecured sections are possible. Distance: about 14 km Gradient: 500 m Level: moderate Length: 4-5 hrs.

The ridge walk along Pico do Alto is one of the most spectacular adventures on the north coast of the island. Here, many a hiker's head for heights is put to the test, while at the same time offering incredible views of Sao Jorge on one side of the mountain and Boaventura on the other. In the backg...

Ponta Do Pargo

Day 4-5

The Levada Ponta Do Pargo trail is a coastal hike on the west side of Madeira Island. It is an epic sunset route with incredible views of the sea cliffs and azure waters. In addition to the coastal scenery, the trail also takes you into the forest as you follow the levada through the rolling hills, always with a view of the sea.

Zögert nicht - einfach buchen und los geht's! Wir haben mit der off the beaten Tour Madeira von ihrer schönsten und einsamsten Seite kennengelernt, das war einfach der HAMMER! Guide João hat tolle facettenreiche Touren zusammengestellt, dass das Wanderherz höher schlagen lässt. Die Villa lässt keine Wünsche offen, sehr gemütlich und super sauber! Zudem sind Kiki & Figo ganz tolle Hosts, wie bei Freunden zuhause und stehen immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Danke für diesen mega Trip, ich komme sehr gerne wieder!

Mit Kiki & Figo als Host habe ich eine einzigartige Urlaubswoche erlebt. Die Gastgeber und der Local João hatten für uns jeden Tag einen abwechslungsreichen Ausflug vorbereitet, sodass man die zahlreichen Facetten von Madeira bestmöglich kennengelernt hat. Vom Trip werde ich viele tolle Erinnerungen, Eindrücke und Bekanntschaften im Gedächtnis behalten. Kiki und Figo hatten zudem immer ein offenes Ohr und eine Antwort für unsere Anliegen. Die Tagesplanung und das Niveau der Touren wurde den Bedürfnissen der Gruppe angepasst. Auf diesem Weg noch einmal besten Dank für das Abenteuer. Viele Grüße an Kiki, Figo & João. Let's hike! :P
