Madeira Island, a gem of the most impressive colours and textures, surrounded by the infinite Atlantic Ocean is the perfect destination for a long-weekend getaway for those aiming to combine their love for Nature and Culture with the perfect  dolce fare niente at sunset.

During 5 unforgettable days, we invite you to explore the most typical side of the island, the views from the sea as evening approaches, the luxurious shades greens of endless mountains and hiking trails and celebrate it all with a fine glass of Poncha.

Program

  • Day1
    • > Arrival + FREE TIME >
    • Arrival at Funchal Airport (FNC) and private transfer to your accommodation.
    • After checking-in, nothing suits the moment better than a Welcome Drink, compliments of Splendid Evasion.
    • Accommodation at a 4-Star Quinta (typical charming manor-houses in Madeira Island).
  • Day2
    • > GUIDED CITY TOUR IN FUNCHAL + CABLE CAR UPHILL + SLEDGE ADVENTURE >
    • After a delicious breakfast, head towards Downtown Funchal, for a first glimpse of the island\'s main city and leaded by our local guide: discover the charms of the most traditional streets and the local market, uncover the historical legacy and the architectural landmarks.
    • Later it is time to get a different perspective on this amazing bay of blue, green and orange, as we move uphill on the Cable Car towards Monte.
    • Once at the top, after many pictures and a visit to the church that overlooks the town, it is time to head down again - feeling adventurous? Then hop on the picturesque and typical wicker \"sledge\" - the fastest and most joyful way to return to the center.
    • Later, enjoy a fabulous lunch with a great panorama.
    • Return to the accommodation, just in time to relax. Enjoy the activity-free afternoon as you prefer.
    • Accommodation at a 4-Star Quinta.
  • Day3
    • > LEVADA HIKE + VISIT TRADITIONAL SUGARCANE MANUFACTURER + WORKSHOP AND TASTING OF PONCHA >
    • After breakfast you will be driven to the starting point of a low-intensity pedestrian trail along a \"levada\" (typical irrigation channel) on the southern coast: a path of discoveries drawn in front of stunning cliffs and farming terraces - built and human ruralities lost in an idyllic scenario where a comforting eucalyptus and mountainous scent is king.
    • Just before lunch, we invite you to refresh and walk in the sand - when time comes, a fabulous meal will be expecting you.
    • Last stop before heading back to the hotel: a traditional Engenho from Madeira, the place where still today strong man extract sugar from the Sugar Cane - one of the biggest resources of the island throughout History - sit back and raise a glass of Poncha (traditional spirit from Madeira) after visiting the showroom and taking part at the workshop.
    • After returning to the hotel, there\'s free time until a pick-up and transfer to tonight\'s restaurant.
    • Dinner at a typical restaurant, expert in fresh seafood and fish.
    • Accommodation at a 4-Star Quinta.
  • Day4
    • > FREE TIME + PRIVATE SAILBOAT RIDE >
    • Enjoy breakfast at your own pace, as this morning is activity-free (it is possible to make the activities planned for Day 2 here, if you prefer to).
    • In the early afternoon, a private vehicle will take you to Funchal Marina, where the skipper is expecting you. Embark on a private sailboat and discover Madeira Island from the sea, navigating towards the southwestern coast - an unforgettable experience that, if you\'re lucky enough, it will also be shared with the dolphins.
    • Meanwhile, you will also have the opportunity to go for a swim and have a cool drink and snack on board. On the way back, enjoy one of the most stunning pictures of Madeira: the sunset colours saying goodnight to Funchal Bay.
