Madeira holidays

1000km from mainland Portugal, the Madeiran islands – Madeira, Porto Santo and the uninhabited nature reserve of the Desertas - were claimed in 1419 by Henry the Navigator. Today these lush islands are famed for flowers, laurel forests, whale watching and historic viaducts (levadas) - plus New Year celebrations featuring some of the world's biggest firework displays.

Madeira walking holiday
...lots of variety...Extremely enjoyable holiday. One that I would recommend. (more)Anne-Marie Hesmondhalgh
The weather was stellar, sunshine every day. We carried raingear and never used it! James, the leader and the other guests formed a cohesive group of companions for the week. Most memorable for me was climbing the highest peak in one long arduous day, at once the most gruelling and rewarding hike I have ever taken. (more)Andrew Miner
The walks, particularly when the weather allowed us to view the spectacular scenery and the group of people we walked with were the best parts of the trip. (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
From £699 - £799 including UK flights
