About this activity

This visit starts in south coast of the island in a point of view where we'll explore the geological landscape over the capital city of Madeira: Funchal.
Still following the beautiful and unique island south coast, you'll learn and discover more about the volcanic rocks of Madeira.
The next few stops of the tour are in the northern coastline, where the erosive forces of rain, wind and sea are still acting and outlining the morphology of the island.
