Madeira, the Garden Island  -  With its location just 300 km off the coast of Africa, the Portuguese island of Madeira is known as "the island of eternal spring" with a winter average high temperature of 17 degrees. The climate is ideal for walking and Madeira offers scenic footpaths along the many "levadas" (irrigation channels) amid exotic vegetation and flowers. It also boasts highly regarded wine, artisan crafts, beautiful scenery, sea-faring traditions, and European  history. Christopher Columbus lived and studied navigation here before sailing to America.

Our holiday is based at the 4 star ocean-front Sentido Galosol Resort. Picturesquely set above the Atlantic at Canico on the south-east side of the island near the capital of Funchal, the hotel offers indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centre, yoga, bicycle rental and spa.  A nearby bus stop offers easy access into the town of Funchal. 

What to do in Madeira:
  • Enjoy moderate guided walks on Madeira's famous levadas
  • Explore the capital, Funchal, with its historic Old Town
  • Admire exotic flowers in Madeira's many gardens.
  • Savour tropical fruit fresh from the tree.
  • Try an optional whale and dolphin watching tour
  • Listen to a Fado singer as you sip Madeira wine.
  • Hear about Portugal's explorers and the New World.
