Tour Itinerary

Terreiro da Luta Viewpoint

Leaving Funchal via Monte, in the direction of the mountains, passing through a dense forest of mimosas trees, reaching this impressive hillside monument, which overlooks the whole bay of Funchal. It consists of a massive monument of the Virgin Maria, lady of peace. The monument was created in 1927. It is over 5 mts (17 ft) high and weighs 20 ton.

Ribeiro Frio

Ribeiro Frio is a delightful spot set among the Laurissilva forest. This Forest is classified in the World Heritage by UNESCO since 1999. Here the fresh clean cold water of the Ribeiro Frio (meaning cold river) are channelled into series of deep pools to create a small trout farm. Ribeiro Frio is also the meeting point of several levada walks.

Santana Cable Car Viewpoint

After departing Ribeiro Frio, our Madeira Tour driver descends through verdant farmland to Santana’s cable car. The dramatic landscape, with towering cliffs and a vine-covered plain, offers stunning views, including the picturesque northern coast extending to Ponta de São Lourenço.

The viewpoint is called Miradouro da Rocha do Navio.

Cabanas Viewpoint

From Boaventura, the old road to Arco de Sao Jorge is one of the most dramatic in Madeira. Passing through an old tunnel we reach Arco de São Jorge, a lush farmland with vineyards. After several hairpin bends we reach, “Cabanas”. It is a breathtaking view point. The houses of Arco de São Jorge and the Rose garden lay small and far below. You can admire the beautiful north-western coast line as far as Porto Moniz.

Rose Gardens

Leaving the views of the Cabanas viewpoint and after several hairpin bends we reach the tiny village of “Arco de São Jorge” which contains one of most attractive roseiral of Portugal. There are more than 1000 different kinds of rosebushes, some very old and some more recent.

Entrance at the Rose Gardens included in the Price
