Overview

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
