Madeira holidays

There’s more to Madeira than wine and cake (though those alone are good enough for me!). Maybe your Madeira holiday will explore the islands’ luscious nature parks, sparkling beaches and romantic coves, or the charming towns, villages and harbours. Maybe you’ll take relaxing walks, explore the history and culture, maybe you’ll chase the water sport adrenalin rush. Or maybe you’ll just stick with the wine and cakes…

Madeira walking holiday
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
The most exciting part was sea kayaking and swimming with the turtle....Great. (more)Miriam Hogan
From £758 - £856 including UK flights
