The magical island of Madeira sits atop an ancient volcano (don’t worry: it’s extinct!) and combines breathtaking rugged mountains with verdant landscape. A mere speck in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Madeira is a sub-tropical archipelago thickly draped with vegetation, a colorful riot of flowers and fruit trees. Even if you spend a year on the island, it never ceases to amaze you when watching spectacular cliffs crash down to the surf below. That’s why visitors often find themselves pulled back to the island year after year to repeat and refresh their memorable experience. Few places on earth can rival Madeira’s wealth of natural gifts, especially in so small an area. The island is blanketed with flowers: birds of paradise display their bright orange, beak-like flowers in open fields. Fragrant hydrangeas line walking paths skirting the edges of mountain terraces. Private and public gardens burst with orchids, bougainvillea and jacaranda trees, while orchards and plantations heave with apples, pears, cherries, passion fruit, bananas and avocados. When choosing a destination for your wedding, honeymoon or celebration parties, it’s not just the location or the property that make the trip but the entire experience. Through Experience Madeira you can get to know the ‘real life’ of the island by exploring the best it has to offer.
