Discover Madeira by bike

You drive on beautiful coastal roads, through laurel forests, over the high plateau, along waterfalls and enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains and the Atlantic. Pure nature.

But the main sights are not neglected either. The natural seawater pools in Porto Moniz, the Madeira houses in Santana, the oldest town on Machico Island, the idyllic fishing village of Camara de Lobos, Cabo Girao with the glass skywalk and of course the lively capital Funchal. These are just a few of the highlights of your trip around the island.

Our tour package

You land at Madeira airport and a driver is waiting for you to take you to your hotel in Funchal.

Depending on your arrival time, you will either receive your bike from us on the same day or the next morning. This is equipped with a luggage rack and saddlebags, water bottle, bike lock and tool kit. Of course you will also receive a helmet from us. If you have problems on the way, you can reach us at any time under our 24-hour assistance.

You will also receive a detailed tour description from us, either printed out or we will download it to your mobile phone. Of course, you will also be happy to receive individual tips and suggestions from us.

On the way you will stay in individual small hotels. If you'd prefer it to be a little more comfortable - no problem. With our upgrade, we also have the right hotels for you here. You will receive the hotel voucher from us in advance, so that you don't have to worry about anything here either. Arrive, check in, feel good. The next morning you can enjoy a delicious breakfast - and on we go ... discover the island of Madeira.

You will spend the last two days in Funchal. From here you can either take a tour inland, relax by the pool of your hotel or get to know the capital Funchal with all its sights.

Unfortunately, everything beautiful comes to an end at some point and our driver will bring you back to the airport.

But one thing is for sure: after getting to know Madeira in this unique way by bike, you will have fallen in love with the island and we will surely see each other again soon.

The tour

The daily stages are between 40km and 65km long. That's not a lot, but not that little due to the altitude difference and you should have time to enjoy the landscape. You should always have your camera to hand, behind every bend a new, breathtaking view awaits you and the small towns along the way invite you to take a short or long stop.

From Funchal it goes along the south coast to the east of the island, to Machico, the oldest city of Madeira. Here you can stroll along the promenade in the evening, explore the small old town with its pubs and restaurants or relax on the sandy beach from the first stage.

The next day it goes along the east coast to Santana, the place with the typical Madeira houses. But the place has a lot more to offer. In the theme park you can learn a lot about the island of Madeira. Are you adventurous? Then take the cable car to the "Rocha do Navio" nature reserve, a secluded stretch of beach where farmers laboriously work their fields.

The landscape is changing now. You reach the wild and romantic north coast of Madeira. Via the picturesque town of Sao Vicente, where a visit to the car-free old town is worthwhile, you come to Porto Moniz. One of the highlights of Madeira. The natural lava pools are a must for any Madeira vacation and you should definitely take a dip here.

After breakfast we go up to the Paul da Serra plateau. Here you cycle above the laurel forests of Rabaçal through a landscape that is very reminiscent of Ireland. Above all, because of the many cows that stand here again and again in the middle of the paths or graze peacefully on the edge. You cross the entire island once and reach the town of Calheta in the southwest, which invites you to relax with its marina and the great sandy beach.

Now it's always back to Funchal along the south coast. Essential stops on the way are the Anjos waterfall in Ponta do Sol, the glass skywalk from Cabo Girao, the second highest cliff in the world and the fishing village Camara de Lobos, which Winston Churchell made famous with his pictures. An absolute must here is the island's national drink: the poncha.

On the last day you are spoiled for choice. Would you like to go on a bike tour and explore the interior, the second highest mountain on the island or the basket weaving town of Camacha, or would you prefer to stroll through Funchal? The old town, the market hall, the cathedral? You have never seen dolphins and whales, in Funchal you have the opportunity on a great boat tour. Or would you prefer to relax by the hotel pool? If you feel like doing all of this - no problem, you can also book an extension week through us.
