Discover our Madeira tours
From picturesque walking trails and lofty clifftop passes to secluded turquoise-blue bays and terracotta-roofed hillside villages, our small group tours to Madeira will take you on an unforgettable trip of discovery.
Join your local tour leader and follow ancient footpaths through Madeira’s breathtaking mountains and explore a vast network of mossy levadas on our best-selling Madeira walking holiday. Waterfalls cascade through the hillsides and freshwater pools entice you in for a dip to cool off. Feel your heart rate quicken as you step onto the famous Balcony Walk cut into the edge of the cliff face and navigate your way through dark tunnels to the summit of Pico Ruivo.
For the chance to go whale and dolphin watching, a trip to the uninhabited Desertas Islands on our Madeira Island Discovery tour is an experience not to be missed. Cruise along the inky-blue seas on a wooden sailing boat, and keep your eyes peeled for breaching whales on the horizon or dolphins playing in our bow wave. Drop anchor in a secluded bay for a delicious home-cooked lunch onboard and dive into the crystal-clear water for a refreshing swim.
