Ramblers Worldwide Holidays bring together small, intimate groups for holidays in Madeira. Walking with our experienced guides guarantees that enthusiasts will discover the true nature of the country. We’ll lead you off the beaten track to explore remote and unspoiled landscapes which you can enjoy in the security and confidence of our trustworthy knowledge.

Whatever your preference walking in Madeira has just about everything to offer our groups, from moderate walking to more energetic, challenging endeavours. The scenery is strikingly beautiful and readily accessible. Some walks will take you along ’levadas’ - waterways ingeniously engineered both over and through the rock to bring water from high mountain springs. Others explore peaceful mountain valleys and follow the line of rugged sea cliffs. Although not particularly arduous terrain, a head for heights may be required!

With Ramblers Worldwide Holidays you get to see the best of a country when you go walking. Madeira is no exception. Join us for a holiday that you will remember for a lifetime.

After all, the world’s more beautiful on foot.

THE “FLOATING GARDEN” OF MADEIRA The perfect walkers’ island
Madeira's volcanic origins are evident by the rocky shore line and rugged mountainous interior. Its highest point, Pico Ruivo, at nearly 1800m, looks out over a mass of peaks and a violently formed landscape. Over the years Madeira has been described as the "pearl of the Atlantic" and "the floating garden" Regional R1

MAGIC OF THE CANARIES Exploring mountains, volcanoes and gorges of the Canaries.
It is our cruises to the Canaries that really show best what Cruise & Walk is all about - a new island each day, real mountain walking, at a time of year when the weather in northern Europe makes a cruise to the warm south seem even more appealing. Volcanic islands with a mixture of forested slopes, high level ridges and trails, long sandy beaches combined with bizarre rock and sand landscapes. Visits to the North African coast as well as the mainland of Spain and Portugal are also featured.

SAILING TOWARDS THE TROPICS Cruising the Europe and Africa's Atlantic coast and islands
On this cruise we don’t quite reach the Tropics, but the mild climate of the Azores, Madeira and the Canaries is a welcome contrast to a northern European winter. Add to that a dash of Iberia and a taste of Morocco and you have a very pleasant way to build up to Christmas.

CANARIES & CAPE VERDE Fly-cruising journeys south to the Atlantic islands and beyond
These holidays venture south visiting the Canaries and Cape Verde Islands.  ‘Passing clouds, warm’ is the normal weather forecast for the Cape Verde Islands early in the year. With temperatures in the high 20s, these remote Atlantic islands are a welcome retreat whilst it’s still winter at home. The towns’ bustling markets have all the flavour of West Africa, and inland the islands’ spectacular volcanic landscapes provide us with great walking and great views.
