Full description

Experience a little bit of everything on this private Madeira jeep tour with a car is reserved only for you and your group. Customize the route of the tour to see the sea, mountains, and waterfalls, and swim in natural pools (western part of the island).

Explore Madeira Island in a unique and active way by Land Rover 4x4. On your tour, you’ll see breathtaking views, visit hidden places which you can't reach by yourself, and collect memories you’ll never forget.

Here is the example tour itinerary which you can adjust to meet your dreams:

Departing from Funchal for Câmara de Lobos, then climb up to the cliff of Cabo Girão, 580 meters above sea level. Step onto a glass platform and view some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Island.

Continue to Lugar de Baixo, where you’ll begin the adventure from sea level to the mountains, climbing through ancient paths where you can see how the local people live and how they work the terraces of banana trees and vineyards.

Next, pass through the forest, mountains, and valleys until you reach the Loch of the Moor with its unbeatable view of the valley of Encumeada and Serra de Água. Go through Bica da Cana, Paul da Serra, and Fanal, with more views of the valleys and mountains.

Upon reaching the village of Ribeira da Janela, see the northwest coast of the island. Descend to sea level to visit the coast and enjoy the ocean view. Then, go to Vila do Porto Moniz to stop for lunch and perhaps enjoy swimming in the natural pools.

In the final part of the tour, leave Porto Moniz for the Village of Seixal and visit the waterfall of the Véu da Noiva. Continue to São Vicente before ending the day with drop-off back in Funchal.

Tour was amazing. We got to hit all the major sights on the west and north side of the island and Justin was incredibly accommodating to our groups needs as we had an 80 year old with us. He was super knowledgable about the island and a great person to talk to in general. Would highly recommend.

Definite recommendation! The tour goes by way too fast because it's so much fun. Although it is a tour with the eventual destination natural pools, the real highlight is the trip there. Mauricio knows all the small streets through the banana plantages, hidden beautiful spots with breathtaking views and paths. While driving, he also tells you a lot about the island. On top of that we walked away with a lot of recommendations for our remaining time here. We were amazed at the end of the day how much we had seen and how quickly it had passed. Will definitely recommend to people I know.
