Poncha, Vineyards, Mountains & Cliffs (Nun´s Valley View) - Half Day 4x4 Tour

This Half-Day Central Private Safari tour was designed for people who would like to see something truly spectacular in a short period of time. I promise one morning or one afternoon full of fun, with off-road paths that enchant for its unique beauty.

In this tour we will visit the coastal region and hidden villages in the mountains of Câmara de Lobos, while learning all about Madeira's traditions and history, always far from the beaten track.

I have the best vehicle for that, a UMM (open classic ex-army Portuguese jeep, it has a cover also for all weather conditions) and creativity to take you to places that you just have to see!

You will have the opportunity of riding in a very relaxed safari-style tour, going to places that you just have to see!

So, join me, and let´s have fun together, exploring without stress, no rush, as friends, fleeing the tourist traps and crowds. We have time!

I will do my best to provide you a unique experience that you will never forget!

    From here we will be able to see Curral das Freiras (Nuns Valley), a village nestled on one of the many volcanic craters, which originated the Island. The village is so named as it is believed that it was the place chosen by a group of nuns to take shelter from the attacks of pirates and corsairs.

    The warning of an unforgettable trip that, at this point, is done through off-road trails towards Jardim da Serra (coffee stop), land of cherries and chestnut trees, a journey of the senses as the intense perfumes (fragrant mimosa and eucalyptus) of the forest and the utter calmness of the cultivated fields overwhelms us.

    After off-road, we will make a stop at a very local place for a drink or toilet (Coffee Break), where you can taste a homemade Madeira wine or a Poncha (Drinks not included).

    But just to give you an idea, the price of the poncha can vary between € 2.00 and € 2.50, depending on the location of our stop
    This town is characterized by a fertile land of cherries. It is the only place on the island where this red fruit exists and that is why every year a festival, which attracts thousands of visitors, is celebrated in his honor.
