Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your excursion begins at the pier where you'll board your motorcoach and travel through Funchal to the island's southeast coast. Enjoy photo stops at each of the following sights:

Continue past Machico en route to Porto da Cruz where you can take in the dramatic views of the sea and the island's mountain interior and the Eagle's Eye, this massive rock formation towering some 1,800 feet above. Next, head inland passing Faial to Ribeiro Frio, Madeira's trout hatchery, boasting lovely manicured grounds.

Your route climbs through lush woodlands to Poiso Pass. The pass rises 4,308 feet above sea level and offers views of the island's highest peaks, Pico Ruivo and Pico do Arieiro. Then you'll descend to Terreiro da Luta, once the terminus of the old funicular railway. Finally, drive through the charming village of Monte en route to Funchal where you'll be taken back to your ship

Special Notes:

The content of this tour is identical to FNC-290. Only guests using a wheelchair can book this tour, as it ensures accessible transportation. Due to the specialized nature of some lift-equipped vehicles, priority is given to guests using a wheelchair and one companion only; additional companions may be required to travel on the transportation provided for tour FNC-290. Bookings not marked with an accessibility requirement will be removed from the tour's inventory.

Comfortable walking shoes and warm cardigan / jacket is recommended, as Madeira has a micro climate.

Visibility from all scenic outlooks is dependent upon the weather and therefore cannot be guaranteed.

This tour is conducted mainly by coach with photo stops, which will in some cases have some steps and cobble stones to negotiate.

Sequence of tour stops may vary.
