In the old part of Funchal, you will board a cable car for a scenic ride up to the town of Monte.

Enjoy a brief adventure with a wicker sleigh ride down to Livramento. This form of transportation is a step back into the past and the rather thrilling ride is quite unique to Madeira.

Continue to Pico dos Barcelos, which offers a fantastic panorama of the whole of Funchal city, its bay, harbor and the surrounding hills. Back in Funchal, you'll have a chance to taste some Madeira wine.


The sleigh ride is at a moderate-to-fast pace. All forms of transportation involve inherent risk, so you participate at your own risk. Sleigh operates weather permitting. Tour does not operate on weekends or holidays.
