Your itinerary DAY 1 UK - FUNCHAL​

Today we’ll fly to Funchal and transfer to our hotel on arrival. Get to know your travelling companions better when we meet for a welcome drink this evening. (D) DAY 2 FUNCHAL​

Today we’ll enjoy a sightseeing tour of Funchal. We’ll begin by visiting a busy market, where you’ll have time to browse the colourful stalls selling flowers, fruit, vegetables and fish. Next, we’ll head just outside Funchal to the Botanical Gardens and admire more than 2,000 different plants split into distinct areas. After leaving the Botanical Gardens, we’ll visit an embroidery factory before calling at a Madeira wine lodge. Here, we will enjoy a tasting of four important Madeira wine castes: Malvazia, Verdelho, Boal and Sercial, accompanied by one of Madeira’s oldest delicacies, bolo de mel de cana, a delicious cake full of spice, sugar, honey and nuts. (B) DAY 3 FUNCHAL - DAY AT LEISURE

Today is free for you to enjoy at your leisure, or perhaps you’ll join our optional levada walk. There’s a whole network of levadas – water channels – on the island, which provide a spectacular array of walking paths. Enjoy a leisurely walk through the emerald-green Paradise Valley with captivating views of pretty villages and admire the abundant flora and patchwork landscape. Please ensure you bring suitable walking attire for this day. (B,D) DAY 4 EAST ISLAND TOUR​

Today we visit the village of Camacha, home to Madeira’s thriving willow craft industry. We’ll then admire spectacular views from Pico do Arieiro, the third-highest peak on the island, before calling at the trout hatchery in Ribeiro Frio. We’ll enjoy lunch at

Santana, a pretty village where you will be able to see the unique, thatched triangular houses, typical of the region. After lunch we’ll make our way back to Funchal along the stunning north coast. The view from Portela is simply breathtaking and we’ll also pass Machico, the island’s first capital. (B,L) DAY 5 EIRA DO SERRADO & MONTE ​After breakfast this morning we’ll visit Pico dos

Barcelos, a viewpoint offering spectacular views of Funchal. We’ll then wind our way up the mountain to Eira do Serrado, a stunningly beautiful place surrounded by mountains and overlooking the remote village of Curral das Freiras, or Nuns Valley. From here, our journey continues to the delightful hamlet of Monte, home to the beautiful Church of Our Lady of Monte and the tranquil Parque Municipal do Monte.​​​ (B)
