- A sugarcane workshop and tasting, followed by some delicious local snacks: Back in the 15th century, Madeira began planting sugar cane, a crop originally imported from Sicily by Dom Henrique (better known as "Prince Henry the Navigator.") Though the steep and hilly lands were very difficult to cultivate, Madeira eventually had great success and began producing sugar cane on farms and in mills around the island. Sugar was considered a luxury at the time, and as plantations and production expanded, the industry grew rapidly to become one of great importance to the local economy. Madeira Sugar became well known all over Europe, attracting merchants and traders to the port city of Funchal, many of whom eventually settled in the city and across the island.
- Breakfast at sunrise above the clouds: Experience a truly singular and unique sunrise in an exceptional spot, with a special breakfast above the clouds prepared by a Chef.
