we love our island and love to show and give you the real Madeira! The Up Mountain Madeira tours started in the beginning of 2012 , taking our visitors as friends that want to see and try Madeira, far away from the tourist crowds and boring, soulless tours and trafic tourist convoys.

We are still a very very small company, with just 2 jeeps, and our tours are always done by a certified guide, by foot or in an open classic UMM jeep, all done in a very calm safe and relaxed way.

we have our shared jeep regular tours, and also can tailor out your tour,for you and your party, focusing what you love the most, so if you think you got what it's needed, and brave enough to leave your cosy sofa, to really live Madeira, take a ride with us. discover the real traditional places, markets and people, not as catle!

  Madeira is famous for its exuberant nature and its fantastic climate, but also for its people hospitality..and we know that Madeira has so much to offer and best is hiking trails, paths and levadas by foot or by jeep.No Crowds, No Rush, small groups, great adventures!

we are a certified and bounded tourism animation company by the Portuguese government under license 118/M/2011 and all our activities are covered and insured

We visit Madeira at least twice a year and always book a tour or lavada walk. Many of the tour companies give only limited information and we have often been disappointed by the actual trip. My brother and his wife were joining us for their first visit to Madeira and we wanted to show them the best of the island... More

Our family stopped in Funchal as a port of call on a cruise, so we had limited time to spend. We arranged a tour with Nico to make the best use of our time on the island that would also accommodate our daughters, 8 and 11 years. As we had a jeep, that allowed us to go off-road for a... More

We booked a private half day tour of the West of the island and our guide David arrived promptly at the hotel. We were expecting an open top Land Rover and were amused to discover it was a Portuguese equivalent, the rather more modest Umm which is basically an Army jeep. We've ridden in Land Rovers many times (we're from... More

We did the full day tour of the east of the Island with Miguel. The whole day was fantastic and it really is the best way to see the island. The views were amazing. Miguel was such a knowledgeable guide and made the whole day so enjoyable and fun. He took us to a local restaurant where we had a... More

I can't praise our guide (Nico) enough. Such a perfect day combining Nico's own suggestions for places to visit with our own requests and for doing such a great job of avoiding any bad weather and crowds. I've visited Madeira many times before but would never have found some of the places we visited and it was as though we... More

I enjoyed a half day tour and the full day east tour, the first with David and the second with Miguel. I can't recommend this tour enough. Both guides clearly love and know the island, and with the off road vehicle, oh the places you can go! The best way to describe it is that it feels like you have... More

This trip was the highlight of my most recent visit to Madeira. It was such an enjoyable day exploring parts of the island and travelling roads (and tracks) that I had never been on before. Nico is such a friendly guide and very knowledgeable about the best places to go and how to get there. He was adaptable, taking us... More

We did the most fantastic tour to the west of the island in an open top jeep. Communication from company before and after booking was excellent ( thanks Nico). Our driver, Miguel, was a lovely guy- whose passion for the island was infectious. He was so informative about the flowers, trees and fruit. He knew all the best places to... More

We booked the West full-day jeep tour in advance. David picked us up from the hotel on time. He was an excellent driver. The tour was well planned and a great experience.

Just returned from a week in Funchal. Booked with Up Mountain Madeira before leaving home based on excellent reviews on tripadvisor. So pleased we did! We were on the half day tour which actually ran from 9 til 4! Miguel, our driver and guide, made the tour interesting and great fun. He is so proud of his home and loved... More
