On our private tour up to 3 PAX, where you can drive a vintage Fiat Panda 4×4 off-road, you’ll be able to combine the thrill of off-road driving with the wonderful sightseeing that only Santana and São Jorge has to offer. Truly, this experience can’t be put into words, you just have to live it by yourself.
We’ll usually pick-up our clients at the hotel, accommodation or ship, and then we go straight to Faial, where the adventure will begin. On the old roads you’ll see the untoutched Madeira, that remains the same.
We’ll slowly climb Cruzinhas, to enter the Laurissilva forest. It’s classified as World Heritage Site by Unesco, because of its exclusiveness, most of the plants you will only find in Madeira. This is where you can fill your lungs with real, pure, unpolluted fresh air.
At the same time we’ll start our off-road adventure, after a small security briefing. We’ll pass through Cova da Roda and go towards Santana on a path full of beauty and fun. During winter time, the road is really muddy, filled with water puddles, so fun is assured!
Still off roading we’ll be heading towards Queimadas, the birth of Levada do Caldeirão Verde.
After seeing Santana typical houses we’ll go towards São Jorge where you will participate on the process of making your own Espetada, only if you want to of course.
Before tasting our very own Poncha we will stop at the only watermill in São Jorge, where we can see how flour is produced.
After a taste of a nice poncha to help us digest our lunch and then back to Funchal trough some old paths, where you can sense the countryside.
