Head inland from Funchal to the viewpoint on Eira do Serrado for an amazing panorama over the island. Sample a taste of Ginga -- 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. Tour does not operate on Sundays or holidays.
