Enchanted forest, terraces, and the Northwest countryside! You will be awestruck by the endless beauty of this adventure in nature while in Funchal, the capital of Madeira. From the brilliant blue cerulean waters to the lush vegetation, it is a paradise to behold from your 4x4 vehicle. Visit Serra de Agua, Encumeada, Paul da Serra, Fanal, Porto Moniz, and Seixal and more!

Your English-speaking guide will pick you up at your cruise pier, but unlike other nature experiences, you will enjoy the 360-degree view and comfort of a 4x4 vehicle! With both front- and side-facing seats, you will have incredible views in all directions. And since your vehicle has a roll back roof, you can even see above you. Your guide will drive you northwest to a region of abundant vegetation, from the ground cover to the treetops. Blending with the beautiful hues of green, there are stunning waterfalls that meet the ocean and pools shaped by lava that are the most brilliant cerulean blue. The colors are so rich and vibrant that you will ask yourself if they are real.

Beginning in Serra De Agua, you will explore the primitive backroads of the native forests in your 4x4. The agricultural parish of Serra de Agua is flanked by high mountains, and the road provides access to Encumeada, the high point of the island. At the top, you have panoramic views to both the south and the north! Many days see a captivating display of clouds that swirl and curl down the southern slopes.

In addition to Ginjas, you will visit Pal da Serra, the flattest spot in Madeira. Again, you will be taken aback by the incredible views of the lush green mountains and the valleys below. If you happen to be here on a day that is clear, you may even be able to view the sea to the north and the south! In the middle of the Laurissilva Forest, you will experience the rare beauty of Fanal. The serenity of Fanal is a popular place for people to relax and enjoy nature, whether it is hiking or walking. Some of the trees here are over 500 years old! It is so majestic that you may even feel as if you are in the midst of an enchanted forest.

Coming back down from the heights of Madeira, you will experience the surreal scenery of Porto Moniz. The exceptionally blue pools here are surrounded by pebbles nestled in the sea. You will also see the agricultural fields of Seixal, which actually got its name from the abundance of pebbles that are found on the beach.

As if this breathtaking experience of nature were not enough, you will also walk along the levadas. These man-made channels have stunning landscapes. There is the option to purchase a 3-course lunch including beverages and coffee for 12 euros.

At the end of your full-day adventure, you will be taken back to your Funchal cruise port having had more unforgettable moments than you can possibly count. Remember to bring your camera along!

If you really want to see what Portugal is all about, this is the excursion you must take. Full day excursion (but worth it). It starts early to catch the first rays of sun and begins in Serra d" Agua. The landscape here is impressive and the scents and sounds of nature captivate you. Its surrounded by mountains, the view is just exceptional. Another location we enjoyed was Porto Moniz. The natural pools are inviting but the current was rough, so we just admired the view. There was just so many details to this excursion and every location we visited was full of history and breathtaking views it will be hard to describe all so simply take our recommendation to do this excursion. Our guide was Nelson and did an amazing job. Have no doubt this will be a unique experience and you will not be jammed with 2000 other tourists, and will be exploring the most secret and secluded locations in Madeira.
