Full description
A magical and memorable tuk-tuk ride across Madeira’s mountains, expect to discover and feel the magic of the best viewpoint Madeira has to offer. Going on this tuk-tuk ride, we advise the guests should come equipped with fully charged batteries on their phones and/or cameras to take some shots of their journey to remember later. Dare to be on a viewpoint 355 meters above sea level, an exciting journey showing one of the most splendid panoramic views over the city of Funchal Bay. This viewpoint is known as Pico dos Barcelos and is located in Funchal, providing a fascinating panoramic view of the city. This place was built back in the ‘50s but it was all its upgrades that made it popular amongst travelers, and locals. On a bright sunny day, it is even possible to see the Desert Islands from this great observation point. This hot spot provides a beautiful background for amazing shots, but also to enjoy a great cup of coffee while enjoying the stunning views. The journey will continue its course towards another great perspective of the island, located at an elevation of 1,095 m above sea level. The Eira do Serrado viewpoint, is located in the mountains in the city of Câmara de Lobos. A spot that shows a fantastic panoramic view of the valley, where one can see the charming village of Curral das Freiras, and the most majestic mountains as a backdrop. Soak up all the beautiful sounds, and mesmerizing details that nature provides from up there. This viewpoint/terrace was built in 1962, having had some upgrades through the years to make it even more inviting to all its guests. Why the name Nuns Valley one might ask. Because back in 1566, some nuns from the Santa Clara Convent in Funchal sought refuge in this remote spot whilst French pirates attacked and plundered their city. Surrounded by massive mountains, bursting with green vegetation, the peace and solitude that this place offers are undeniably one of a kind. The journey back will be just as exciting, with an expert driver/storyteller providing curious details and fun history facts.
