€1155 €1039per person
Madeira Island is one of Europe’s most beautiful travel locations. It offers not only an all year round summer climate, as well as wonderful fauna and flora, but it is also virtually crime-free and one of the safest holiday destinations in the world!
Madeira has stunning landscapes, dense verdant forests, volcanic mountains, flower gardens with exuberant colours, the taste of passion fruit and swimming in the Atlantic’s blue waters. It’s also known for the one of the best New Year Eve celebration in the world.
Madeira is the destination for those seeking a bluer sky and brighter sun, Madeira’s locals are warmth and smiling, an exemplary hospitality which brings peace of mind and security.
Madeira is a destination with mild weather all year around, with many different microclimates. This means that in a few kilometers the scenery can change. If you want to go for a walk, there’s nice cool air to keep you company through the Levadas in the mountains. If you prefer to stay on the TagusLovers sailing boat, the sun and warm waters invite you to go for a swim.
The southern slope is sunnier and the northern slope is more humid, so your tours can be practically planned by the centigrade degree. At Porto Santo Island the climate tends to be dryer, but it´s never too hot. It’s the perfect climate for exploring the islands in shirtsleeves (but with good walking shoes, a coat and of course, sunglasses).
Madeira is a Portuguese island chain with four groups of islands: Madeira, Porto Santo, Desertas and Selvagens, and only the two larger islands (Madeira and Porto Santo) are inhabited. The other islands (Desertas and Selvagens) are natural reserves which do justice to their names.
Listed price includes offshore skipper, crew, fuel, insurances, safety gear. For those looking for miles log, this passage log around 550 nautical miles on our log book and our offshore skipper will sign a miles certificate.
