Full description
Begin this full-day 4x4 tour with a pick-up at your hotel in Funchal and travel deep into the southeast of Madeira. You’ll come to Machico town and the line that divides the north and south of the island. Take in breathtaking views of the Eagles Rock from Portela. Drive down, stopping in Porto da Cruz, which is the next must-see point. Visit a sugar cane factory, continue to the Faial coastline and then up to see the typical houses of Santana. These small straw-thatched triangular houses are emblematic of Madeira and intricate in their construction. Head down into the valley and through the forest to Riveiro Frio at an elevation of 1818 meters, the third-highest peak on the Island.

Excellent guide very interesting loads of interesting facts. Off road experience amazing especially when we came across a fallen tree his skill to get his vehicle around was great to watch as we had to leave the vehicle for our safety. The restaurant was very authentic and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the day so much we booked another to see the other side of the island.

Spencer is a super fun guide with a lot of knowledge about the island and its culture. Unfortunately we had a very cloudy and wet day in the north, which is why the summit of the mountain was icy and the view was not far. In good weather you would have a great view of the valley here. The stops at the rum distillery and in the restaurant were definitely worth it!

They delivered! From the time I was picked up at the hotel, until I was dropped off some nine hours later, this was an adventure! Our guide, Spencer, took us on an exciting trip through the mountains, on dirt roads, and made sure we got ample time to take pictures wherever we went! His knowledge of the island’s history, flora and fauna, along with amusing stories from his time on the island, made the trip very enjoyable. And the lunch was fantastic! Try the octopus!
