Northern Madeira

Funchal heading to Machico. Crossing to the North coast, the Guindaste Viewpoint. Santana Typical Houses, São Jorge and local agriculture, great landscapes and emotions of Boaventura, Ponta Delgada and the Serra d'Água Valley from São Vicente.

We depart from Funchal heading to Machico, a city known for being the landing site of Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira in 1419, when they discovered Madeira. Crossing to the North coast, the Guindaste Viewpoint offers a unique experience, combining views of the coastline with the thrill of two glass platforms suspended over the sea. Santana, famous for its Typical Houses, features traditional stone houses with steep triangular thatched roofs.

From São Jorge village up to Arco de São Jorge immerse us in local customs as well as abundant local agriculture and off-road adventures, allowing adrenaline to connect us with nature in a special way. A lunch break allows us to recharge before embarking on a coastal journey between Boaventura, Ponta Delgada, and crossing back to the South coast in São Vicente. 

The return to Funchal arrives with the evening, filled with the emotions of a great day!
