Madeira’s northwest coast boasts varied landscapes and attractions, but a typical coach tour to these dispersed sites doesn’t allow much time to explore. Benefit from a tour in 4x4 vehicle, and experience a thrilling, multi-terrain adventure. Visit landmarks including Paul da Serra and Porto do Moniz, and enjoy the undivided attention of your driver and guide as you explore the jungle and, weather permitting, dip in the sea.
  • Travel to the dispersed sites with ease in an open-top 4x4
  • Learn about the region’s culture and history from your guide, and benefit from their undivided attention with a private tour
  • Experience the northwest coast’s wild landscapes and visit iconic landmarks such as Paul da Serra and Porto do Moniz
  • Save time locating meeting points with hotel pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
Begin your full day trip with pickup from your Funchal hotel by 4x4 open-top vehicle. Cruise across Madeira’s wild northwest coast, visiting a number of charming locations along the way, including Serra de Água, Chão dos Louros, Porto do Moniz, Seixal, and São Vicente, before heading back to Funchal in the evening. During your day, admire the region’s varied landscapes, from coastal to mountainous, and experience different driving terrains, from hard, rocky roads to narrow forest trails. Take part in a guided hike into the forest, and learn more about the region’s history and culture from your expert guide. If the weather permits, enjoy a refreshing dip in Porto Moniz, or savour a local lunch in Seixal (own expense). At the end of your excursion, enjoy convenient drop-off back to your Funchal accommodation.
