Top Madeira holidays – pick your favourite

Madeira is quickly becoming the place to be if you are looking for family fun, a trip with your mates or a relaxing time for two. True that it is no Ibiza but it is not far behind, and if once upon a time it was a place exclusively for more mature people, that is no longer the case and our Madeira holidays cater for every age.

This charming island in Portugal is the home of beautiful flowers, stunning wines, dramatic scenery,  famous footballers and so much more. To make it easier for you we put together a list of our top holiday ideas.

Madeira Self-drive 

Be independent and discover the whole of the island at your own pace with our self-drive holidays. We organise a car hire and the accommodation for every night, all you have to do is to drive and enjoy your trip. Lose yourself in amazing views and stop anywhere you want, from little villages where you can mix and mingle with the locals over a cup of coffee to gorgeous remote beaches.

It’s positively the best way to get to know the island!

Madeira Walking Holiday

Easily combined with our our self-drive holidays our walking holiday is a fantastic way to get around the island. We will give you a few suggestions in the itinerary but you are completely free to choose where to go and what to do. The only thing that is set is the accommodation on each night.

This destination is a paradise for walkers, with a huge network of paths and tracks alongside levadas, in the higher mountains along the rugged coastline. It really is no surprise that it is one of our most requested Madeira holidays.

Discover a new destination at your own pace. There will be delicious food to try and plenty of Madeiran wine to sample. You can make it as relaxing or active as you want, as the accommodation we have selected on this honeymoon trip allows you to be active (walking, canyoning) or relaxed (spa and jacuzzi) at the same time.

We have included a whale and dolphin watching trip at the start of your trip and have left the rest of your adventure open so you can decide for yourself what you would like to do. You can choose from a wide range of activities or simply watch the gorgeous sunset. It can’t get more romantic than that!
