Guided Walking Holidays Madeira Whether you visit Funchal as part of our two week holiday or as a stand alone week, you will enjoy some excellent and varied walking. Its difficult to choose the best walk. Is it the high level walk between the islands two highest peaks, Pico Arierio and Pico Ruivo, sometimes above the clouds? Is it the walk from Boca da Corrida, through the lush eroded crater of an ancient volcano, down to Curral das Freiras with spectacular views of the high peaks? Or how about the high-level traverse from Boca do Risco along the north coast, finishing in the seaside town on Porto da Cruz? At the far eastern end of the island we walk€ross the windswept landscape of the Punta So Loureno, utterly different from anywhere else on the island. For all of our 2019 holidays we are offering two grades of walking with two leaders on every departure date so there’s more flexibility and opportunity to discover for yourself which walk is the best! The higher level walks include the ascent of the islands third highest peak, Pico Grande, a more challenging version of the High Peaks walk, and extended versions of the grade 6 walks. Our hotel could not be in a better location in Funchal, just a stone’s throw from many restaurants, shops, the fish and flower markets and the cable car up to Monte. This 1960’s themed gem gives you the ability to explore this Atlantic jewel of a town further, especially as we take our evening strolls to dinner where we will sample local culture even further. Funchal really is a truly splendid place to be as the sun goes down over the harbour.
