Tour Itinerary

Pico dos Barcelos Viewpoint

High above the hotel zone is a tree topped belvedere. Pico dos Barcelos has an observation point on the edge of Funchal, it is 355m (1165 ft). There’s a magnificent view across Funchal from the top of the viewpoint. The nuns valley tour will then hen take the old narrow, very winding road, up through the eucalyptus forest until Eira do Serrado, absorbing the picturesque view of the peaks.

Eira do Serrado Viewpoint

The viewpoint at Eira do Serrado offers breathtaking views over Curral das Freiras, a valley encased by steep peaks. Previously thought to be a volcanic crater, its unique shape actually results from erosion. The area is rich in agriculture, with terraces of wine, fruits, vegetables, and sweet chestnut trees below.

Nuns Valley

We then Head down in to the Village of Nuns Valley – Curral das Freiras it is one of the most spectacularly situated rural settlements on the island. It is situated in a huge natural amphitheatre, surrounded by some of Madeira’s highest peaks. The village was founded in the sixteenth century by the nuns of the convent of “Santa Clara” in Funchal, from where the nuns fled from pirate attacks in 1566. The centre of the village is situated on a small rise in the middle of the valley. Leaving Nuns Valley you head for your Hotel.

Pico do Arieiro

Ascend towards Pico Arieiro, the island’s third highest peak at 1818m. Experience the transition from lush woodland to rugged cliffs, offering stunning vistas and rare Madeira junipers on descent.


The road is lined with orchards and in summer, with blue blossom of the agapanthus. Camacha sits on a high plateau on the northeast of Funchal. At Camacha you will visit “O relogio”, the largest outlet on the island for wicker products and nobody will pressurise you to buy. Demonstrations of wicker weaving can be seen in the basement.Camacha is also the first place were soccer was played in Portugal in 1875.

5 out of 5. Diego was a brilliant tour leader stopping to show us all the plants, fruit the country has to offer. We had enough time to stop and roam around before going on to our next stop. Worth the morning or afternoon to see the beautiful sights of Madeira. Thank you.

After 30 years of coming to Madeira and enjoying many lovely experiences, a safari guided by Nuno was the crowing glory. Nuno’s attitude knowledge and experience patients friendliness was beyond exemplary. We had a fantastic half day tour. Thankyou Nuno. We would also like to thank our other 2 fellow travellers Adrian and his wife from the Isle of Man.

Overall it was quite a good tour, unfortunately Juan was running late (he did inform us via email of this), but it seemed the tour was then rushed, missed out wicker basket viewing, journeys seemed erratic and rushing and speeding to next stop each time. We were sat in the back, so had a difficult view of surrounding scenery as roof was in eyeline, felt like we were in the cheap seal, while other 4 passengers paid the same and sat in comfort.
Fantastic & fun

We were a group of 12 and did 4 tours (2 full day, 2 half day) with Green Devils. Our guides (Jose & Nuno) we’re great, lots of info, lots of fun - forests, mountains, volcanoes, up in the clouds, down by the sea, we did it all. Lots of off road tracks (some a bit scary ), but all fantastic. Lunches good, ponchas (rum punches) even better . Cannot recommend highly enough.
Great, fun jeep tour

Great, fun tour of some of the island of Maderia. Nun's Valley is worth seeing and you get taken to the 3rd highest mountain peak There is some fun off road, where you can stand up in the back of the jeep. Nelson was an informative and friendly guide.
