Surfing Lesson It's time to hit the waves! Madeira's unique geographical location makes it a great place to catch some waves. We will join the best local surf school to learn how to surf or improve your skills. The island has a range of surf spots suitable for all levels, so there's something for everyone. After an adrenaline-filled morning of surfing, we will relax in natural volcanic pools in Seixal.

Achadas da Cruz

Day 2-3
Later on the second day we will visit visit an old farming village right on the wild west coast of the island accessible only by cable car. This cable car ride is one to remember, as it is descending in almost 100% and therefore is one of the steepest ones in Europe.

PR1 Vereda do Areeiro

Day 3-4
Day 3 - Time to Hike On Day 3 we will accomplish the most popular hike on the island, and for a reason! The Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo trail is one of the most iconic and breathtaking hiking routes in Madeira, Portugal. Spanning approximately 7 kilometers, this trail takes you through the rugged and majestic peaks of the island, offering spectacular views and an unforgettable hiking experience. The trail begins at Pico do Arieiro, the third highest peak on the island, situated at an elevation of 1,818 meters. From there, hikers embark on a challenging yet rewarding journey towards the highest peak in Madeira, Pico Ruivo, standing tall at 1,862 meters.

Porto da Cruz

Day 6
At some point of the trip we will surely visit this magical surfing town on the north-east coast. Not only it is absolutely beautiful, surrounded by green hills and offers two of the islands favourite surfing spot, it also houses an amazing restaurant with tasty traditional dishes and in my opinion, best Poncha on the island!

The last day we can do a morning hike, this one along the Levada Nova, one of the island's most famous Levada trails, which follows ancient irrigation channels along the edges of steep cliff. Stunning view of greenery and the ocean in the background. It's not a challenging route so perfect to stretch our bodies after so much done during the trip!
