Guided Winter Walking & Sightseeing
in Madeira, Portugal

2019 Holidays  Feb 15 - 25  or  Feb 11 - 25

With its location just 300 km off the coast of Africa, the Portuguese island of Madeira in February has an average high temperature of 16 degrees with some days reaching 23.  Called the "Garden Island of the Atlantic", Madeira's sub-tropical climate results in exotic vegetation. But the island is known for more than just its flowers. It has highly regarded wine, beautiful scenery and European culture.  For walkers it offers scenic footpaths along the many "levadas" (irrigation channels).

 HF Holidays offer a one week guided walking and sightseeing holiday based at the ocean-front Galosol Resort. This 4-star hotel is picturesquely set above the Atlantic. Known as an "active hotel", the resort offers many activities with indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centre, yoga classes, spa and rental bikes.  A nearby bus stop offers easy access to the town of Funchal where you will find botanical gardens, whale watching tours, shops and cafes.


Madeira Highlights:
  • Walk along Madeira's levadas. Choose from easy walks or ones that are more challenging.
  • Enjoy a day of sightseeing in historic Funchal.
  • Try an optional whale-watching tour.
  • Admire the amazing variety of exotic flowers in Madeira's many gardens.

About HF Madeira walking holiday: 
We stay at the same hotel for the entire holiday. You can choose a nine night holiday or a thirteen night holiday to combine it with flights from Toronto. On four days there is a choice of guided walks (an easier walk or one that is a little more challenging). On one day we have a guided sightseeing tour. The remaining days you are free to explore on your own or to enjoy the resort facilities. Breakfast and dinners are included.
