  • Funchal, Madeira - Madeira Musts 89(USD)
    40 spaces remaining

    Description

    This tour takes you west from Funchal and through the hotel and residential area of town. Winding along the coast, the road passes by the village of Câmara de Lobos “The Sea wolves' Lair”, a picturesque fishing village, once painted by Sir Winston Churchill. A stop will be made to allow you to explore some of the surrounding area and try a famous local drink called “Poncha”, made from Rum and honey at a local bar with a live demostration. The road then heads up the mountains and passes by the vineyards of Estreito de Câmara Lobos, one of the most important winegrowing areas of the island. The steep valleys offer good examples of the terraced cultivation seen throughout Madeira. To reach Cabo Girão, we drive through pine woods and eucalyptus forest, easily identifiable by their scent. Cabo Girão is the second highest sea cliff in the world, and the highest in Europe. It rises sheer from the sea, so that the viewpoint offers breathtaking views along the coast, over Funchal, and out over the distant horizon. Continue along the winding road which offers spectacular views en route to Eira do Serrado. Here a short ascent on an easy path leads to the summit of Pico do Serrado (about 3,000 feet). There are superb views of Madeira's highest peaks and the Curral das Freiras village below, a hamlet so remote that the Santa Clara Convent Nuns used it as an escape from the pirate raids of the 16th century. Here you will get the opportunity to try another local drink called “ginja”, a liqueur with a slice of Madeira Honey cake. On return to Funchal, the tour stops at The Blandy Wine Lodge, so that you have the opportunity to taste Madeira Wine, world famous for centuries.

  • Funchal, Madeira - Best of Funchal - Cable Car, Toboggan & Wine 89(USD)
    48 spaces remaining

    Description

    See Madeira from the air and experience the wonderful views all the way up to Monte by cable car then down by toboggan! Monte has been a favorite destination for visitors to Madeira since the late 19th century, when a steam railway was built to haul cruise liner passengers up the hillside from Funchal. The railway closed in 1939, but now we are given the opportunity experiences this trip with the construction of the cable cars. The first stop on this Land Adventure is in the old part of town where you will board the cable car to begin your ride. The cable car takes you on a picturesque trip up to Monte where the first image you’ll see is the twin-towered façade of the Our Lady of Monte Church, a landmark throughout the city. The cable car ride has a duration of approximately fifteen minutes. The cable car is made up of 40 small cabins with a capacity of up to 8 people per cabin. For those who would like to, the way down to Livarmento can be done on the famous basket sledges called “toboggans”. Your next visit will be at The Blandy Wine Lodge, here you are invited to a tasting of some fine Madeira Wine, world famous for over 400 years at a Wine Lodge in Funchal. After experiencing the highlights of Funchal, you may either choose to return to your SeaDream yacht or continue to explore the town independently.
