This is a great opportunity to combine an Island tour with a hike where we can explore so many different landscapes, come join me and visit unique places of the island.
The Laurel forest of Madeira (Laurissilva) protected by Unesco since 1999, a relic of the prehistoric times. It is the largest and most well preserved on the planet, believed to be 90% primary forest, mostly spread in the north side of the island.
Ancient footpaths connecting villages before roads were a reality in the island, combining urbanised and farming landscapes with coastal or mountain (or both) backgrounds and forest.
Spectacular Mountain trails that will take you to the highest points on this island where walking above clouds is a possibility!
