Active holidays Madeira

Active: Madeira

En route in the southeast of the ‘flower island’

Madeira offers you a holiday like a picture book: Madeira has a summery and warm climate all year round, a unique flora and fauna as well as crystal-clear water as far as the eye can see – like a large garden floating in the Atlantic Ocean. But the South and West of the flower island, doesn’t only feature breathtaking scenery, but also an abundance of outdoor adventures.
 
On your mixed adventure holiday in Madeira, you can follow the water into deep gorges, kayak in nature reserves and wait for the next wave while surfing on the beach. The rocky coastline can be explored through climbing, jumping and swimming whilst coasteering. Breathtaking views await you during the levada hike. And on the catamaran trip you can even watch whales and dolphins.
