we love our island and love to show and give you the real Madeira! The Up Mountain Madeira tours started in the beginning of 2012 , taking our visitors as friends that want to see and try Madeira, far away from the tourist crowds and boring, soulless tours and trafic tourist convoys. Our tours are always done by a certified guide, by foot or in an open classic UMM jeep, all done in a very calm safe and relaxed way. we have our shared jeep regular tours, with max 7 persons and also can tailor out your tour,for you and your party, focusing what you love the most, so if you think you got what it's needed, and brave enough to leave your cosy sofa, to really live Madeira, take a ride with us. discover the real traditional places, markets and people. Madeira is famous for its exuberant nature and its fantastic climate, but also for its people hospitality..and we know that Madeira has so much to offer and best is hiking trails, paths and levadas by foot or by jeep.No Crowds, No Rush, small groups, great adventures! we are a certified and bounded tourism animation company by the Portuguese government under license 118/M/2011 and all our activities are covered and insured

Just brilliant - again. The highlight of our stay. Great guide, non commercial feel, and very friendly and genuine. The 'Jeep' is fantastic and the chance to be above-the-clouds was an experience of a lifetime - literally! ( We tool the EAST tour this time )

We were recommended this Jeep Safari and were not disappointed. It is unique in that Miguel will check the web cams across the island the find the best places to take us to. We basically ended up with about 8 hours safari experience! This included off road one, driving through waterfalls, walking part of a Levada, checking out some idyllic... More

We booked a jeep tour and we're really lucky to get this half day tour because fortunately another couple had cancelled their jeep tour with Nico. The jeep safari is absolutely amazing! You get to see things you can't see from a bus window! Nico, the jeep driver, took us to his uncle's vineyard and to a local bar uphill... More

My husband found this before our trip to Madeira and booked us straight onto a trip and we were so lucky. Its clear from the outset that this is not a job for Nicolau and Miguel its a hobby and they really want you to share in their passion and love for the Island. We were on the full day... More

Before my first tour with UMM I have already spent some days on my own in Madeira, and almost lost the spirit of knowing something really genuine, interesting, more than just very nice... I was really lucky to find and book in advance the two tours "Flowereast" and "Farwest":) Cause my real trip to Madeira started there: real nature, the... More

Worth going on €10 one way or €15 return . Amazing views . There is a cafe at the top with a souvenir shop or you can climb the hill a little more to see if you wanted too

What can I say , a highlight of our stay in Madeira. Nicolau is a gentleman and wonderful host who was able to show us a authentic Madeira that you don't see when going with larger companies. I can not highly recommend them enough. But book in advance as they get very busy. I only contacted a few days before... More

Well just back from an amazing day touring the Island with Up Mountain. I can not rate this trip high enough. We have seen and experienced so much, with great local knowledge thanks to our fantastic guide Nico. He takes you to local sights and a local restaurant that gave us a 4 course meal with wine all for 10... More

Two slightly crazy Portuguese (just joking!), Nicolau and Mighuel, use two definitely crazy jeeps, half a century old and somehow salvaged from the Portuguese army! These vehicles go slow but they go everywhere. Having a broken wrist when we went on holiday, I always got the front seat, safely strapped in. Once off the normal road however all the other... More
