Monte Toboggan Ride

The Monte Toboggan involves sliding in a wicker basket mounted on wooden runners. It covers the 2 km (1.24 miles) descent from Monte to Funchal in 10 minutes. The trip is enjoyed by thousands every year, drawn by the exhilarating experience of traveling at speed down a public highway on a wooden sled. Ernest Hemingway once described it as “exhilarating.” A cushioned seat softens the ride, with passengers in the safe hands of toboggan drivers, who steer from the rear using their rubber-soled boots as brakes. Madeiran Tobogganing, invented as a form of transportation in 1850, offers a unique and thrilling way to experience the island.
