Madeira Islands

Trip Planner Europe  /  Portugal  /  Madeira Islands
A feast for the senses, the subtropical paradise of Madeira Islands draws nearly a million visitors annually. This Atlantic archipelago, known to many as the "Islands of Eternal Spring," lies some 850 km (530 mi) southwest of the Portuguese mainland. Volcanic in origin, the islands feature dense pine and laurel forests and richly cultivated mountain slopes. The two populated islands boast an extensive network of irrigation channels, bringing much-needed fresh water to the coastal farms and resorts. Hiking trails following these water channels make even the remotest areas accessible, beckoning to adventurous trekkers and impassioned nature lovers. Base your holiday in the city of Funchal, the archipelago's capital and biggest city. Plan your holiday in Madeira Islands and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Portugal travel itinerary planner.
