Island is known as the Pearl of the Atlantic, the floating Garden. Has a mild climate throughout the entire year.
Discovered early in the 15th century by the Portuguese navigators João Gonçalves Zarco.
Madeira is brimming with smiles and is famed for its amazing varietyof walking terrain with an extraordinarily dramatic coastline and towering sea cliffs. There are breathtaking gorges, deep ravines and a network of peaceful levadas that wander across the open moorlands up to the wild and rugged mountains.
Have a look at those gorgeous photos- slide.
