Madeira is one of the oldest and most prestigious tourist destinations of the European continent. Adding to the extraordinary beauty of its landscapes, and its temperate climate all year round, is the image of quality and security which guarantees a considerable occupation of its hotel units. The Autonomous Region of Madeira has sought to keep up with the evolutions and demands of international tourism, by creating modern and adequate infrastructures and structures, meeting demand, and each time being more committed to fulfilling the requests of tourists.

Alberto João Cardoso Gonçalves Jardim President of the Regional Government of Madeira

adeira.

In this way Madeira has become one of the most sought after Congress and Incentive destinations, offering numerous comfortable meeting rooms, all properly equipped with the highest technology, allowing congress attendees access to the fastest and most sophisticated forms of communication in the world. Madeira has the advantage of being able to supply unique pre and post conference programs for escorts, offering a wide choice of visits to museums and monuments. They can also enjoy the delicious local gastronomy, and meet up with nature, whose laurel forest was consecrated by UNESCO as a Natural World Heritage Site. The government of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, through its different public services, gives this sector of tourism its full support for it to become a reference – a true international brand of this region – so that all who organize their congresses and incentives here will leave well credited, satisfied and above all can return soon. Saluting all Congress and Incentive organizers, I hope to have the pleasure of your stay here in this Autonomous Region of Madeira. Alberto João Cardoso Gonçalves Jardim, Funchal, April 2006

Amazing Natural Landscape Madeira’s natural heritage has been officially recognised as one of the most precious landscapes in the world, with an untouched prehistoric forest – having for this reason received one of the very rare UNESCO Natural World Heritage classifications in 1999. This proximity to nature is truly impressive, with two thirds of the island protected, discovering Madeira’s hidden core is a sensational experience.

Sea The Port of Funchal is just as vibrant today as it was 400 hundred years ago when it was a vital stopping port on the way to the New World. All the major cruise ships regularly dock in Funchal, and during New Year’s eve as many as fourteen can be seen in the bay. Apart from the Funchal marina, there are also several new marinas along the coast, which offer an excellent place to stop and discover a different part of the island. Roads Madeira and Porto Santo has a totally renovated network of roads and tunnels, which make traveling on the islands fast, safe and easy. Most have been built within the last 7 years and provide quick access between city, countryside and from one attraction to another. The famous ancient trails are still there as well if you want a different experience – roads carved out of the rock, which pass under waterfalls and hug the cliffside near the sea. Other transportation Madeira and Porto Santo can be discovered by helicopter, paragliding, parasailing or hang-gliding. The sea offers every means of transportation and sport you and your group could want, from sailing yachts, catamarans, replica Columbus galleon, water-skiing, surfing, windsurfing, deep-sea diving or big game fishing. A unique way of seeing Madeira and the bay of Funchal is on the cable car, which can take up to 800 passengers per hour. Starting in the old town, the cable car slowly rises over the ancient houses, climbing higher and higher as the views become more dramatic capturing the valleys and the sparkling sea below. The cable car lands in Monte village and here as well as the wonderful gardens and church, we can find the famous toboggans, which so excited Hemingway on his visit to Madeira. The toboggans are sledge-like vehicles, which are controlled by 2 men that run alongside the sledge and make sure you don’t crash down the road or onto the oncoming traffic. The journey takes you down the steep roads to Funchal and is a must group activity.

yearly events & festivals

Madeira has a vibrant cultural heritage, with festivals taking place in most months of the year. There are major international sports events, as well as small regional celebrations to choose from. Visitors can experience and participate directly in these festivities, which offer an insight into Madeira’s unique personality. New Years November – January The natural amphitheatre of Funchal provides a spectacular backdrop for the fireworks display which has been ranked amongst the top 5 in the world. Christmas Lights – November marks the start of the events, with the switching on of the colorful Christmas lights, all the amphitheatre becomes covered in lights making a spectacular vision. Market Night – The 23rd December is a very special night in the local calendar, when everyone heads to the market – which stays open till the early morning hours, with the fruit stalls, bars and shops all providing constant entertainment. New Years Eve – Every year the fireworks get better as the expectation rises as well. At least a dozen cruise ships and hundreds of boats of every kind watch the fireworks from the sea. On land there are excellent viewpoints from almost every part of the city.
