Madeira island was officially discovered around the 15th century by Portuguese explorers. However, there is evidence that the island was previously discovered around the 75 AD by some southern sailor.
Madeira attracts many people with its beautiful nature, incredibly tasty cuisine and unique culture. It is an all-year vacation destination, which means you can visit the island whenever you want.
Pico Ruivo is the highest peak on the island of Madeira and one of the highest peaks in the Atlantic Ocean. There is only one way to visit it – on foot.
It takes around 5-6 hours to hike it, but it takes you through Europe’s most scenic landscapes. Thus, it is absolutely worth the effort.
It is slightly different from the rest of the hiking trails, as it is fairly easy to hike and is surrounded by lush Laurisilva vegetation.
Probably the shortest trail of all the hiking trails in Madeira. It takes less than an hour and leads you to one of the most jaw-dropping vistas on the island.
Funchal, the capital of Madeira, the birthplace of Ronaldo, is probably the most colourful city on the island. It is full of colourful streets, positive vibes and mild weather.
