A week with a relaxing, but interesting start and end – Whale and Dolphin watching – and an overall exhilarating few days in the middle, is how you can best describe our adventurous Madeira Activity Holidays.
Whether you’re a novice or want something more challenging, our Madeira island specialists will always discuss this trip with you first, so we can make sure that this fun and action packed trip is adjusted to suit your abilities and preferences.
And even though you’re based in Funchal, you will be seeing other interesting parts of the island during your Madeira activity holiday adventure. When you’re being transferred to the start of your canyoning experience in the North, or riding your bike on trails in the West or in the centre of the island.
As this is a bespoke trip, we can always add a few more days at the end of this trip: if you want to hire a car and explore the island on your own, or want to relax before you head home. Our Madeira activity holidays are always tailored to fit you.
After breakfast make your own way to the Whale and Dolphin watching office near the harbour, where you first have a briefing, before your board the Rib. After the three hour trip, you will have the rest of the day free.
