Recommended experiences:

Suggestion for the day:

  • Embark on a Whale and Dolphin-Watching Excursion: Madeira's mysterious beauty extends a lot further than its breathtaking mountain landscapes, flowering gardens, picturesque villages, and sprawling vineyards. Just 5km (3 mi) off the coast of the island, the ocean depths can reach more than 3,000m (9,850ft) making Madeira's surrounding waters ideal for whales, dolphins, and a multitude of other marine species to swim through. In fact, Madeira is close to the biggest whale sanctuary in the North Atlantic Ocean, spanning 635,000 hectares of protected waters (that's two times the size of Lisbon!)   With more than 28 species in the area, you’re almost certain to run into a friendly group of dolphins or a whale while out on the water. 

Suggestion for the day:

  • Take the Day for a Hiking Adventure: With its many gorgeous mountains and waterfalls, it’s no surprise that Madeira has long been referred to as a “hiker’s paradise”. Many of these trails follow the old irrigation canals called “levadas” that were used to bring water from the north side of the island to the south. Although still used today, many of these canals are also widely used for walking. No matter your preference or experience level, there are many different types of trails all over Madeira. Beginners or those looking for a more leisurely nature walk should stick to the south side of the island, while those looking for a more exhilarating trekking experience should head north to the mountainous side of the island.
