Madeira is a territory of Portugal, but it is significantly closer to mainland Africa (800km) than to Lisbon (1,200km), while the Canary Islands are less than 400km to the south. Madeira is often referred to as the ‘island of the eternal spring’ due to its climate, which is pleasantly warm throughout the entire year. The southern latitude of Madeira would expect a destination of soring heat and parched lands, but this is not true. The Atlantic Ocean tempers the temperature extremes, while the mountains and moisture-laden winds ensure rains fall and keep the island lush and green. Experience nature at its finest by traveling on foot through the lush green mountains of Madeira Island. Discover just how beautiful Madeira is! Don’t risk your safety and be guided by a tour guide, you may explore in safety the highest peaks along through tunnels and on old coastal paths boasting magnificent sea views.
