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

We originally only booked for the full day tour of the West side of the island , after only about an hour we were booking in for a second tour of the East side. Miguel was amazing , extremely knowledgable and sooo much fun , taking us away from... More

What a way to see Madeira, spectacular views, take your camera! The roads are a bit scary but our driver Hugo was an expert. Take a jumper as the temperature drops dramatically up the mountains.

This was, hands down, the best activity I did during my week on Madeira. Going off road with Miguel was amazing. When we stopped for coffee, lunch and poncha, it was always at local places with good quality food and drinks and low prices. We saw lots of (mini)busses full of tourists on the main roads, but very few or... More

We were just two in the jeep with Miguel. He was very good and we had a great time with a half day tour of the west side. Miguel has a few tricks up his sleeve and took us to out of the way places where there were MONKEYS in the trees! We also enjoyed the local drink Poncho? We... More

We left booking too late to get a full day tour but did manage a half day tour with Nico of the West. What an amazing experience! We got to go to places where the tour buses and mini buses cannot reach. Off road too! Nico is one of the most friendly and enthusiastic people you will ever meet. He... More

Brilliant. David our guide for the trip was fantastic. His knowledge and friendly nature made this half day trip a wonderful experience. Yes the jeep is rattly, it is also not best suited for the squirty in and out traffic around Funchal but out in the back roads and off road it is ideal. Standing up in the back of... More

Oh my God, Nic was the best guide. He knew his island so well. He's also a great great guy. We had the most wonderful day. Highlight, the steep little roads, the lunch with choosing your own meat. The views, OMG just beautiful. Want to also thank Nic not only a wonderful host, but a very caring generous person.

First of all warm greetings for MIGUEL! Book the trip for the first day (2 months before departure). You will be explained where to go, what to see and what to eat. We did the tour in middle of our holidays and now we regret that it was not on the first day, as we got so many cool tips... More

Both great tours by locals and very nice guys ! Very professional, even in difficult weather, always inclined to explain lots of details about the island. We found it both interesting in terms of discovering Madeira and its inhabitants and amazingly beautiful. It's really a very good way to discover the diversity of Madeira in just 2 two days. And...
