Madeira walking holidays will be sure to put a smile on the face of any visitor exploring the ‘island of the blessed’.
Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic ocean. Located between Portugal and Africa this volcanic island is blessed with a Mediterranean climate but the rainfall amounts vary quite widely even across this small area. The mountainous north-west is a wet and humid blanket of rainforest, whereas the south-east is an arid expanse of land where trees were once burnt to fertilise the soil for farming. Many people are attracted to Madeira walks by the diversity of wildlife, fresh seafood and variation in landscape from gorges and mountains to gentle walks under mimosa trees. It’s not hard to see why walking in Madeira is such a pleasure.
