Full description
Climb aboard the Botanical Garden cable car and ride to the mountains surrounding the city of Funchal. Botanical garden cable car is situated between 10-12 minutes (by car) from Funchal city center. Start out near the Botanical Garden, located about 3 kilometers from the center of Funchal. The Botanical Garden was created in 1960 and quickly became one of the major attractions on the island of Madeira. The cable car will take you over the Valley of João Gomes Ribeira, passing forest-covered mountains. Take some spectacular photos of the Bay of Funchal, the surrounding mountains, and the sea. The ride takes approximately 15 minutes. Your trip ends at the village of Monte, at an elevation of 1,025 meters above sea level. Monte is a small village that was initially a health resort for the upper classes in the early 20th century. Today it is one of Funchal’s main attractions and the site for trying a toboggan ride down the hill. Depending on the option selected you can end your journey in Monte or take the cable car back to the Botanical Garden. The cable car was designed and operates in accordance with the most strict European and international security standards, ensuring that you can focus on enjoying the ride.

from Funchal we were taken by bus which left us directly in the parking lot of the cable car, moreover at the station there are souvenir shops and just next to the entrance to the botanical garden, from the cabins there is a surprising and magnificent view, arrived in monte there are still beautiful things to visit and moreover a very good restaurant which is on the side of the church we ate very well there is a room upstairs and the owner is very welcoming. We had a very good day

Easy booking through get your guide. Exchanged voucher for tickets. No queue to get in cable car and we’re able to ride on our own ( on a busy day I think you would be expected to share). Beautiful views - we were lucky to have a clear run going but was misty on the way back down. We dropped by at the Botanical gardens. We’ll worth a visit.

The actual trip is around 10 minutes - not 15 as they advertise. During the trip you'll witness great views, but Madeira is one big great view anyway. Village on top is a nice one, but doesn't really take your breath away...unless you consider steep hills which will take your breath away because it's not easy to walk in there. In general, we spent around 1,5 hours in there. Was a nice trip.
