Details

You'll begin your guided tour with a visit to Camacha, dubbed "the village of basket-makers". Learn how it earned this moniker with a visit to the wickerwork factory boasting over 1000 different products. Enjoy panoramic views over the island from Pico do Ariero, the island's third largest peak, before heading to Ribeiro Frio. Here you'll have the chance to visit a trout farm and take in the remains of the "Laurissilva" forest which once covered most of the island. The next village en route, Santana, is famous for its thatched, triangular cottages. Continue to the eastern tip of the island, the unspoiled São Lourenço, before heading to Machico. This historic town was where the Portuguese explorers first landed in the 15th century. It boasts the island's oldest church and remains of the two forts once used to protect the island from pirate attacks.
