A stunning natural contrast of desert and evergreen landscapes stretches out along this scenic tour. Admire the vistas from your vantage point at Pico dos Barcelos and stroll around Eira do Serrado overlooking the valley of Curral das Freiras, which was built in the crater of an extinct volcano.

Explore some of the most scenic villages in Madeira as your expert guide narrates the history of the places you visit and pass. Your first stop is Pico dos Barcelos, where you can admire panoramic views over Funchal, Madeira's 500-year-old capital. Head inland to the Eira do Serrado viewpoint and get a glimpse of Curral das Freiras—a village built in the crater of an extinct volcano.

Your final stop, Monte, is a charming hill-village famous for its gardens, parks, and Our Lady of the Mountain Church, the resting place of the Austrian Emperor Karl I. Soak up the local way of life, ramble through the picturesque streets, and if you're feeling adventurous, jump on board a Carro de Cestos (Toboggan Ride) for a traditional slide onboard a basket driven by 2 skilled Carreiros do Monte (Sledge Drivers).
