Approximately 4 hours
Head inland from Funchal to the viewpoint on Eira do Serrado for a fantastic panorama over the island. Sample a taste of Ginja -- a liqueur traditional to this region -- with a slice of homemade cake.
Monte is a village noted for its many fine gardens and twin-towered church. The highlight of your tour involves embarking on an exciting, ten-minute wicker sleigh ride from Monte back to
Livramento. Your sleigh is directed by two people. The wicker sleigh was once a popular form of transportation on Madeira.
In Funchal, visit an embroidery showroom and sample some Madeira wine.
The sleigh ride is at a moderate-to-fast pace. All forms of transportation involve inherent risk; you participate at your own risk. Sleigh operates weather permitting. There may be a wait for the sleighs during peak times. Wear comfortable walking shoes. No guarantee is offered with regard to visibility or views on any particular day, as weather and atmospheric conditions vary and are beyond the tour operator's control.
