What to Expect
We'll pick-up our clients at the hotel, accommodation or ship, and then we go straight to Caniçal, the oldest geological part of Madeira. The you'll be able to see Ponta de São Lourenço, and pass trough the fisherman village. This will be a small visit aroud 30min, so we can spot the diferences and admire the different landscape between North & South Coast.
Afterwards we'll slowly climb towards Santo António da Serra, to enter the Laurissilva florest. It's classified as World Heritage Site by Unesco, because of it's 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 explain to you the basics of Off-Road Driving and then you'd jump to the driver's seat. We'll pass through Funduras and go towards Portela on a path full of beauty and fun. On Winter there’s a lot of mud puddles so fun is assured!
It's time for a Poncha tasting (Local alcoholic beverage made with sugar cane rum) in a real local bar. (You have to taste it for yourself, we won't give you more hints...) 
After this injection of "courage" still off roading we'll be heading towards Santo da Serra while passing through a Levada, where you'll be able to go for a small walk to stretch your legs.
After we'll be heading back to Funchal, through the old roads we're you'll be able to taste the old Madeira and the countryside living.
