On this picturesque private half-day trip, you will be driven from Pico dos Barcelos to Nun's Valley. Pico dos Barcelos has an observation point on the edge of Funchal, 1165 ft above sea level. It is an excellent way to view Funchal from the sea to the mountains, and Islas Desertas directly across can be spotted on a clear day. This belvedere at Eira do Serrado has a spectacular rock ledge that overlooks “Curral das Freiras,” a horseshoe-shaped valley below. This valley has three sheer sides that cut into the serrated peaks of Madeira. Make your way down to the Village of Nuns Valley (Curral das Freiras). See where the nuns of the Monastery of Santa Clara once sought refuge from French privateers. It is one of the most spectacularly situated rural settlements on the island, in a huge natural amphitheater surrounded by Madeira’s highest mountain peaks. Finally, you will be dropped bac...
Really good interesting short tour with amazing views.Thanks to our wonderful guide Suzanna
Start your Nuns Valley adventure by meeting your driver/guide in the lobby of your Funchal-located hotel room or at the terminal of your cruise ship. With your driver/guide, begin the ascent up to your first stop 355 meters above sea level at “Pico dos Barcelos” to take in the city of Funchal in all its glory. Your next stop is the “Eira do Serrado” viewpoint, standing in the “heart” of the island at an elevation of 1,095 meters. Admire the mountain views, the Nuns Valley and its village "Curral das Freiras" almost 500 meters below. Around the parish village the central mountain chain of Madeira stands guard, providing an amazing view of an almost-cinematographic landscape. Choose to either visit the village by driving through the tunnel that crosses the mountain or head back down to Funchal and make an extra stop at another viewpoint. After experiencing the wonderful changes in the ...
This tour begins in the city of Ribeira Brava, known for the charm of its wild stream. Start your journey by heading to Ponta do Sol and visit the beautiful and cultural downtown and the town harbor. Next, visit the Madalena do Mar Harbor and see the fishermen's houses. Then, make your way to Calheta, known for its artificial sand beach and production of Sugar Cane Rum. Then, continue towards the mountains of Prazeres and visit a Farm Animal Center and try its award-winning jam.
More than just a walk, this tour includes a real challenge: climbing to the top of Penha d'Águia, one of the most important rocks in Madeira. The slippery and steep slope adds to the difficulty of the route, requiring extra attention from hikers. After the steep climb, reach the top of the rock. Take some time to relax and explore the several viewpoints on offer, from which you can enjoy wonderful views over Porto da Cruz and Faial. The descent is as steep as the ascent, and is also quite slippery. Upon returning to the base of the rock, located in the area of Faial, look up and enjoy the wonderful feeling of having reached the top of the imposing and symbolic Penha d´Águia.

Visit an old watermill from the 1700s and the only one still operating in Madeira. Explore the São Jorge Valley with a door that opens to the sea. Finish wi...
