East: Unique Ex-Army jeep tour to East Madeira - Santana
Come and join the East Adventure with me to visit Madeira's hidden treasures! This is an excellent opportunity for you to discover views you might have only seen in movies, valleys and mountains, that could not be any more perfect and our traditionally built Santana houses! And to make all this available to you, we will travel safe but super fun off roads! After our introduction we will be heading to Lombo da Quinta using the old fashioned side roads offering wonderful views to the Funchal harbour. An amazing opportunity to take some photos to remember. Then back to the Jeep, and to the Pico do Arieiro! One of the highest place of the island at 1818 meter above sea level, looking down to breath-taking valleys, forests, mountains, even Ponta do Sao Lourenco. Using off roads, we will visit our traditionally built Santana houses and have a tasty lunch. You can even try a Poncha before we make our way to Guindaste's glass platform view point! This tour will take 8 hours including pick up and drop off from and to your accommodation. Upon arrival we will have a short introduction and I will go through the plan of the day with you, to make sure it is customised to your interests as best as possible! During our tour I will take you to many different view points to the valleys and ocean and I will introduce the local flora and history! We will drive on narrow and off roads and have lots of fun!
