My name is Dinarte (or Dino if you want) and i've been hiking in every corner of Madeira Island since i remember, starting with family and later exploring by my own and with some friends. More recently i've been certified as an official mountain guide.
I really love to meet new people and different cultures, and share all my passion fo this island and my knowledge about Madeira's history, flora and fauna in order to provide the guests and unforgettable experience in some of the most magical spots of Madeira Island.
I promise you'll not regret!

Where you'll be

We can visit one of the most spectacular trails by the northeast shore with the sea in your hand and the green mountain in the other, the perfect match!
If you like mountains and high cliffs, there's always some trails on the island's central massif. It's not an easy walk but i'm sure you'll remember them forever.
If you just want to relax in a flat walk i can take you to some Levadas with the fabulous green environment around.

It was a great experience. Dinarte was a perfect guide. He showed us great places. He was also very patient as I’m not a regular hiker so I tend to stops a lot and he accompanied us while following our pace. Definitely recommended.

I would highly recommend a walking tour with Dino. We did the Fanal and Levada dos Cedros tour which ended up being around 13-14km, but it was all easy terrain. There were a couple of steep parts but on the whole very manageable. The ground was quite muddy due to the rain so if you have walking boots it's best to wear those. Dino was really knowledgeable and professional and told us lots of interesting stories and facts as we did the tour. Go for it!
