Tour description

Your local tour guide will pick you up after you leave the terminal building and off you go on your today’s excursion to Madeira.

You will be taken to the center of Madeira, where dramatic, cloud-covered mountains fall down into green valleys – a spectacular sight.

Your first stop is at the lookout point Eira do Serrado, one of the most beautiful places in Madeira with breathtaking views of the fascinating mountains, the lush green valleys and the village in the Valley of the Nuns.

The journey from here down to the village in the Valley of the Nuns (Curral da Freiras) takes about 20 minutes. The Nonnental, a small secluded village in the heart of the island, where in the 16th century, the nuns sought refuge from the pirates who often attacked Madeira. Here you can still experience the rural side of Madeira and the typical village life, because the locals live of primarily from what they grow themselves. Every year, the locals celebrate the ‘Chestnut Festival’, which the village is famous for. There are many traditional recipes containing chestnuts which you can almost make anything out of, mainly different liqueurs, cakes, puddings and soups. The native chestnuts are very tasty and are used widely in the everyday kitchen.

On the way back you will stop in the charming fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. Characteristic of this place are the many colorful fishing boats docking at the harbor and the Lobos‘ Stockfish -which traditionally is hung out here to dry. This place is proudly remembered at the time when Winston Churchill was inspired to paint. Câmara de Lobos is also home to the “Ponchas“, a drink made from freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey and sugar cane brandy, which you can try in one of the many small bars.

At the agreed time your tour guide will then bring you back to your ship.

We wish you an interesting excursion on Madeira!
