Cycling in Madeira
A Madeira é uma ilha de relevo montanhoso e muito acentuado. Uma boa alternativa para a explorar a ilha, é a bicicleta pois esta permite-lhe conhecer lugares onde é impossível chegar com o carro. É claro que para isso, precisa de estar em boas condições atléticas. Subidas com inclinação superior a 17% ou altitudes superiores a 1000 metros, necessitam de muita força e resistência física. A Madeira é um desafio aliciante para os amantes desta modalidade. Já existem algumas ofertas de Férias de Ciclismo ou “Mountain Bike” . Foram criados cerca de 20 clubes de ciclismo para competição na região.

Sport Holidays in Madeira Islands

The mild climate of  Madeira and Porto Santo Islands is ideal for the practice of all kinds of sports, leisure and outdoors activities, at any time of the year.
Many options are available, including water, land and aerial sports, ranging from relaxing activities to traditional and extreme sports:
Sea lovers will benefit from the warm sea currents, with temperatures ranging between 19º and 24ºC, ideal for snorkelling, diving, sailing, surfing, windsurfing and sport fishing, all year round. You will also be able to catch the best waves in Europe, at the Jardim do Mar, Fajã da Areia (São Vicente) and Porto da Cruz beaches.
A quiet boat trip is also a must. Sailing along the coast, you will be able to watch the dolphins, whales and monk seals that grace Madeira seas with their presence.

Visitors looking for stronger sensations will certainly be able to find them. Paragliding or hang-gliding over the island, canyoning to discover the heart of the mountains, climbing the highest peaks, embarking on an all-terrain adventure, feeling the adrenaline rush while riding a jet-ski, or simply enjoying the sheer freedom of kitesurfing, are some of the sporting experiences available to visitors.
Golf, trekking and hiking are excellent alternatives for those preferring calmer activities, allowing a closer look at the natural features of these lusciously green islands.

Discover the impressive and diverse island vegetation over a walk along one of the local canals known as “levadas” or one of the many trails at the heart of the Laurissilva forest, declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Nature Site. Due to its beauty and diverse landscape, this forest has recently been declared one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Portugal.
