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.


Fly from Gatwick on a direct flight to Funchal. On arrival, transfer to Hotel Penha Franca Mar, within walking distance of Funchal centre, and stay in a twin room for seven nights.
After breakfast make your own way (10 - 15 minute walk) 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.
After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel, and driven to the North coast near Seixal for your first full day of canyoning (includes return transfers and equipment hire). After your briefing you walk to the canyon where you will be abseiling down waterfalls and jumping into pools. Lunch is not included.
Today you will return again to Seixal and do more sliding down water chutes and abeiling down waterfalls. Lunch is not included.
After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel for a full day of mountain biking (includes return transfers, bike hire and protection). Depending on your abilities (which you can discuss with one of our specialists), we can recommend certain routes. Lunch is not included.
Another mountain biking day. Depending on your abilities, you will be transferred to the area we think would be best for you. Lunch is not included.
After breakfast make your own way to the Whale and Dolphin watching office near the harbour. Don't forget to bring your swim wear, as this time you will be swimming with dolphins. After the three hour trip, the rest of the day will be free.
Day at leisure until it's time for your transfer to the airport.
