Northern Wonders and Porto Moniz Lava Pools 4x4 Tour
USD 49.44
Overview
Uncover the natural splendor surrounding Funchal on this full-day northern wonders Jeep trip. Stay from Funchal’s well-trodden paths in a fully-equipped Jeep to see the awe-inspiring plateaus at Paul da Serra. Admire the natural Porto Moniz pools, formed by volcanic activity long ago, as well as the renowned São Vicente vineyards.
What to Expect

Departing early from Funchal to a viewpoint with delightful views over Ribeira Brava village, the Atlantic Ocean and mountains. From there we cross to São Vicente in the north, known by its vineyards, volcanic caves and Madeira's wine production. Then we visit one of most

famous viewpoints in the north coast where you can see a waterfall that by resembling a bride's veil due to the abundance in water got its name Véu da Noiva. From here you can see on a clear day the island of Porto Santo. Continuing our tour we stop in Seixal at the natural pools where you have the chance to swim in crystalline waters and enjoy the beautiful scenery around them. We also visit Porto Moniz volcanic pools which is one of the most visited by tourism in Madeira. Then we drive uphill with some off road to Paúl da Serra, the biggest plateau of the island at nearly 1500 meters with stunning views. There will have a lunch break (not included) in a typical Madeiran restaurant. For ending our tour we go to Bica da Cana viewpoint at 1650 meters where you can admire breathtaking views over the north side of the island.

Am pretty sure they’ll pick you up from any hotel in Funchal - we were quite a way out in the Lido area near Pestana Grand, so just selected there. Great day and great value!
