Best Jeep Safari Madeira Tour & Guide To Booking

Best Jeep Safari Madeira Tour & Guide To Booking

The jeep safari Madeira tour was one of our top highlights on the island. From off-road forest drives to a morning in the clouds, here’s all the info.

Who To Book Your Jeep Safari Maderia Tour With

There are so many options when booking a Madeira jeep safari tour of the island, that it can be a little overwhelming.

However we opted to go with Mountain Expeditions and cannot recommend them enough!

With full day or half day tours available, you can even completely customise your own tour with an experienced professional driver.

From ‘the best of the South’, to ‘the enchanting North’, you can contact the qualified drivers and give them a breakdown of exactly what you’d like to see.

You can check out the full range of prebuilt Mountain Expedition Tours here.

We chose the Madeira: Full-Day South Coast Jeep Tour and our day with Mountain Expeditions was incredible. The guide was on time, spoke great english an catered to our every need.

We may be biased, but ask for João as your guide if you want the best Madeira jeep tour out there. He couldn’t have been anymore helpful.

With his passion for Madeira, as well as his great passion for life, he was an absolute pleasure to be around.

What To Expect On A Madeira Jeep Tour

We dedicated one of our days on the beautiful Portuguese island to taking a Madeira jeep tour with Mountain Expedition.

We ventured through the mountains and valleys and experiencing the rugged natural beauty and spectacular landscapes of Madeira.

Spending a full 8 hours exploring every corner of Madeira we hadn’t yet touched, was a really enjoyable way of getting to know the island and culture.

When we travel, we really like to experience and learn as much as we possibly can about a place. So by taking the Madeira jeep tour, we did just that!

Conveniently, a traditional lunch is included, as well as door-to-door transfers. We had a customised experience so we had a beautiful picnic by the sea.

We encountered the stunning subtropical Laurissilva forests in the hardest-to-find locations, not forgetting the endless flora and fauna in the valleys.

You can go off-road and access places that would be hard to reach alone, such as the amazing Pico do Arieiro.

Pico do Arieiro stand at 1818m and gives views of the neighbouring island of Porto Santo, on a clear day. Or, if like us you don’t get luck with clear skies, you can stand above (or in) the clouds and still feel on top of the world. 

Madeira island is not only known for its beautiful nature but also the vast Atlantic Ocean surrounding the island and its abundance of wild sea life. So you can combine your jeep safari Madeira tour with a catamaran trip.
