Full description
Discover the stunning natural landscape of Madeira on a private hiking trip with a local guide. Enjoy a customized tour to suit your preferences, whatever your physical fitness level. Whether you want to see waterfalls, forests, high mountains or sea cliffs, your local guide will suggest the perfect trip.   Start with pickup at your hotel or apartment, then listen to your guide's commentary as you drive to the start point of the hike. Walk through beautiful nature and experience the most magical places in Madeira. If possible you can finish with a cold or hot drink (not included), before being dropped off back at your hotel. In this experience i'm suggesting some of the most beautiful walking trails in Madeira Island. All the tours are scheduled in the less busiest day in each area to provide you a calm and relaxing experience out of the crowds.

Dino was so knowledgable and helpful, he was an incredible host and we had a great experience walking the Levadas with him. He also gives GREAT recommendations on food options in Funchal :-)
