What you'll do

On this tour you will discover the Northwest side of Madeira in a open top 4x4 vehicle. This tour lasts 8 hours, from 8h30 until 17h00, and will be made on board a 4x4 vehicle, passing at the old forestry roads and off-road, where you don't reach with a normal car. In this excursion, we will also have a walk in the "levadas", about 20 minutes, discovering its origins and utilities. We continue our journey towards the mountains of the Ribeira Brava, and then cross to the North of Madeira, discovering small settlements. We ascend to the only plateau on the Island, Paúl da Serra, about 1500 meters above sea level, passing through the endemic forest, rich in fauna and flora. Then, we will head towards Porto Moniz, passing by Fanal and Ribeira da Janela. In Porto Moniz you have the opportunity to swim in the volcanic pools and in the afternoon enjoy the view of the cliffs along the coast between Porto Moniz and São Vicente, as well as other natural pools, dark sandy beaches, and small villages. Before returning to your lodging, you will have the opportunity to drink the real "poncha".

Fernando

I am the founder and CEO of the tourism company Green Devil Safari, with the Portuguese license RNAAT 69/2015, recognized by Turismo de Portugal. I work as tour guide since 2001, taking our visitors to know unique places, many of them unknown to tourists. The objective is to make every tourist feel "Madeiran" for 1 day, knowing our culture, history, tradition, gastronomy, avoiding the touristic places. In order to avoid large crowds of tourists, my tours are made in 4x4 vehicles with open top roof, in small groups up to 8 people per car.
