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.

We are still a very very small company, with just 2 jeeps, and 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, 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, not as catle!

  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

Miguel picked us up at our Hotel on time and was very friendly. Any concerns I had about riding in a jeep were soon allayed by his careful driving. The whole day was fantastic . We were shown parts of the island we would never have found on our own. We were taken to a local restaurant for lunch. It... More

We organised this when we arrived and were lucky to get a spot on the full day East island tour. Paolo picked us up from our hotel right on time and we were with another family so just six of us in the back of the open top 4x4. First stop was the mountain Pico do Areerio with plenty of... More

We booked our half day trip in advance to celebrate our youngest daughters 11th birthday. Nicole met us at 9am as arranged and after we gad picked up two other couples we were soon heading above the clouds, via Nico's uncles house. Nico seemed to know everyone in the villages we passed through and had a broad knowledge of the... More

Loved it! Great guided, helpful via E-mail. The level 1 is very easy. I was unsure that I would be able to do it. Looking back, I would have booked level 2 from the beginning. Highly recommended.

Really good communication from start to finish from the staff. Prompt, courteous guide who went out of his way to make it a fun trip. We did the West tour which was really interesting, with the added benefit of off-roading making the trip memorable for us all. Would heartily recommend booking with Nico and his team to anyone travelling here

You will have the opportunity to truly get to know the rural and local Madeira Island, as the 4x4 goes all the places and villages that the big buses&tour operators wont. Will go again on my next trip to Madeira!

We started the day about 09.00 when our driver Miguel arrived to pick up the 4 of us from our Hotel in Funchal. Another couple were already on board making 6 of us in all. Miguel had been tracking the weather as we were due to go over the mountains to Porto Moniz on the north-west of the island. After... More

Booked on line before arriving, prompt reply and picked up as arranged. We had arranged to do the full day East tour. The driver and guide for the day introduced himself as Diago, he made the day with his knowledge of the area stopping off at all the attractions including a few refreshment stops! And a lovely meal to boot.... More

Fantastic tour. Organised online before we came to Madeira. Prompt response to e-mail from Nico and Paolo turned up at the hotel as arranged as our guide. Was a small group of 6 of us in total. All couples. We quickly got to know each other with Paolo's easy chat. Sight seeing was great. Parts of it off road, with... More

This is without doubt an amazing way to see and explore the wonderful island of Madeira. We booked the west island tour prior to our visit by emailing Nico, he was helpful and prompt in dealing with our enquiries. The jeep turned up on time with the wonderful Miguel as our guide and driver for the day. We were also... More
