Madeira Active Family Adventure

Submitted by Prue on Tue, 07/06/2021 - 10:56
Teaser
Head off into the Atlantic for an action-packed week on and around the island of Madeira. The amazing landscape is perfect for the activities included - ranging from canyoning to kayaking and dolphin-spotting.
Trips Overview Long

Sitting out in the Atlantic, Madeira is a volcanic Portuguese Island with a dramatic landscape with lush forests and beautiful wildflowers. This family adventure holiday includes a host of activities that will take you across the island and out into the surrounding ocean too. You will swim in pools formed by volcanic lava, slide and jump down a canyon that cuts through the hillside, paddle along the coast on the lookout for dolphins and whales and pedal alongside a Levada - one of the many irrigation channels build to channel rainwater down the rocky landscape.

This trip is a 'small group' adventure so you will link up with some other like-minded families, to make new friends and share the fun of all the activities offered throughout the week. Some meals are included, with a traditional Madeiran meal on the first night, so that you can get to know the group a little. Then at the end of the week, there is a farewell dinner before you all return home. A couple of lunches are also included when you are out on full-day activities.

This whole trip is tailored to families and is suited to children aged 8 and over. You can expect a warm welcome in Madeira, especially from your guides and instructors, who will make sure the activities run smoothly and at a pace that suits the whole group. The week is not all action-packed though - there is also time to enjoy the hotel facilities and explore a little of Funchal too.

Trips When Description

This 7-night trip is offered on dates in July, August and October, fitting into UK school holidays.

Trips Stay Description

Your stay in Madeira will be based in the 4* Quinta da Penha de Franca. This traditional 'Quinta' ('country house') hotel is located close to the seafront and the centre of Funchal. 

Facilities:

  • Saltwater swimming pool
  • Games room with pool tables, cards and darts
  • Restaurant
  • Bar

Rooms have a balcony or terrace and garden view. You can also opt to upgrade to a sea view room or a room in the adjoining Quinta da Penha de Franca Mar, right by the sea.

Other hotel options include the Pestana Carlton and the Porto Mare.

Meals included: 7 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners

Trips Itinerary Description

Here is an idea of the itinerary included with this trip:

Day 1: On arrival, you will be collected from the airport and taken to your chosen hotel in Funchal. This evening, meet your local guide and enjoy a traditional Madeiran meal at a nearby restaurant. 

Day 2: Hop into a jeep for an expedition into the mountainous terrain of the Eastern part of the island. There will be stops to take in the view, a picnic lunch in a laurel forest and then you'll head off on a walk, following one of the island's many Levadas (gently sloping irrigation channels).

Day 3: Today you are free to choose what you do. Perhaps enjoy the hotel's pool or take a dip in the sea; or enjoy some of Funchal's many attractions - for example, take the cablecar up to the botanical gardens, hop on a hair-raising wicker toboggan or explore the colourful market.

Day 4: Grab your sea legs and your swimming costumes for a day on the water. First, you will explore the coastline by kayak., with the chance to snorkel in the clear waters of the Garajau Nature Reserve. Then, later in the day, a RIB will take you out in search of dolphins and whales. Often dolphins will swim alongside the boat, and if so, you may be able to get in and snorkel with them (this does depend on weather conditions. Max. 6 people in the sea at one time).

Day 5: You have a morning free today before being collected from the hotel and kitted out in wet suits and shoes, for an afternoon of canyoning. Your expert guide will lead you down the canyon at the group's pace, with a series of easy slides, pool jumps and rappels (a bit like abseiling). This is a fun way to explore the island's amazing rocky scenery. The min. height for canyoning is 140cm.

Day 6: Today there is another Jeep Expedition, this time to the north of the island. Heading into the mountains, you'll visit the Volcanism Centre and explore volcanic caves and tunnels. Then, after a stop for lunch, you're off to Seixal, where natural lava pools make a unique swimming opportunity, in crystal-clear saltwater.

Day 7: The last activity of the week is mountain biking.  Once kitted out with bikes and helmets, you'll take a family-friendly trail, following another wide, gentle Levada; cycling past impressive trees and colourful flora. You then have the afternoon free before joining your guide for a farewell meal in a local restaurant close to your hotel.

Day 8: After breakfast at the hotel, you will be taken back to the airport for your flight home.

Please note: All these activities are included but the days they run may change. The confirmed itinerary for your trip will be issued on arrival in Madeira.

This trip is suitable for children 8 years and older (though canyoning is only suitable for children at least 140cm tall). Younger children can join the holiday but may not be able to participate in all activities.

Trips When Description

This family fly-drive can be arranged throughout the summer, between May and October, so you can choose dates that suit you. Flights are available from London and some regional airports.

Trips Stay Description

Your stay in Iceland is based at Minnibogir Cottages, a collection of 22 simple, wooden cabins about one hour's drive from Reykjavik. There are four types of cabin, ranging from one or two bedrooms to a larger chalet-style cabin sleeping 9, perfect for two families travelling together.

Some cabins have a private hot tub, heated with geothermal energy (others have access to shared hot tubs). All cottages have a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, TV, DVD player, free WiFi and a gas barbeque. There is also a restaurant, serving simple, tasty local food.

Close to the cabins, you will also find a children's playground and the local thermal pool.

Trips Itinerary Description

Day 1: On arrival at Keflavik International airport, collect your car and drive to the town of Selfoss on the edge of the famous Golden Circle area (driving distance 115km).
Accommodation: Minniborgir Cottages (7 nights)

Day 2: Head out to visit some of the natural geographical wonders of the famous Golden Circle route, including the thundering Gullfoss waterfall and the famous Strokkur Geysir, which erupts every 10-15 minutes. In the afternoon, explore the fascinating Þingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), with its craggy landscape, caused by the parting of two tectonic plates. This is also where the Vikings established their parliament in 930AD. Driving distance today 165km.

Day 3: Stay closer to your base today, with the option to take a dip in the Secret Lagoon in Fludir (43km drive; entrance not included) or visit the Lava Centre (71km drive; entrance not included) - a fantastic interactive, high-tech exhibition about the volcanic activity, earthquakes and the creation of Iceland over millions of years.

Day 4: Heading south, today you can take in the amazing coastline with the option to stop at the stunning waterfalls of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss. You can also explore the nature reserve of Dyrhólaey - the translation is 'door hole', named after the amazing rock arch in the cliffs. Continue on to Iceland's most southern village, Vik. Today's driving distance is 350km.

Day 5: The capital Reykjavik is calling today. Explore the history and culture at your own pace. Take in the amazing Hallgrímskirkja Church, designed to look like a basalt lava column, a common volcanic feature in Iceland.
