Emblematic Madeira & Ribeira Brava - FU27

Leaving the pier you will proceed towards Camara de Lobos. There, you will see its lovely, quaint setting of red-tile roofed houses clustered on the rocky point and the brightly painted fishing boats anchored in the harbor. Passing by Estreito de Camara de Lobos your tour will then proceed to Cabo Girao, the highest sea cliff in Europe and the second highest in the world. Soaring 1,900 feet, its etched face tells the tale of its volcanic origins. From this impressive promontory, you will have breathtaking views along the island's southern coast. Before reaching Cabo Girăo, you will have the opportunity to taste a famous local drink, Poncha, made of rum and honey.

Leaving the pier you will proceed towards Camara de Lobos, a well-known fishing village used by Sir Winston Churchill to create beautiful island paintings. There, you will see its lovely, quaint setting of red-tile roofed houses clustered on the rocky point and the brightly painted fishing boats anchored in the harbor.

Passing by Estreito de Camara de Lobos, known for its vineyards, you will reach Cabo Girao, the highest sea cliff in Europe and the second highest in the world. Soaring 1,900 feet, its etched face tells the tale of its volcanic origins. From this impressive promontory, you will have breathtaking views along the island's southern coast.

Before reaching Cabo Girao viewpoint, you will have the opportunity to taste a famous local drink, Poncha, made of rum and honey. Don't worry you are not driving.

Your drive will continue on the old street towards Ribeira Brava (wild stream), a small town on the southwest coast of the island. The town boasts many street cafes and shops and is certainly a place to spend some time taking in the sights and sounds. Ribeira Brava was one of the first parishes of the island and was inhabited early in the island's history. After some time strolling in this characteristic town, your tour returns to the ship (via highway).

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 500 yards over mostly uneven and cobblestone surfaces with 20 to 30 steps at the various sites. Visibility from all scenic outlooks is dependent upon the weather and therefore cannot be guaranteed. This tour involves extensive driving, some on winding roads. Guests who suffer motion sickness should take the appropriate precautions before embarking on this tour. It is recommended to take a light jacket or sweater for the cooler temperatures in higher elevations.
