Christmas 2016 (6 Replies)
Having a lovely holiday in Madeira. I arrived early December and here are my thoughts so far. The Christmas lights this year are excellent. There is so much more colour. The extra colour extends to the trees all of the way out to the Forum. Funchal seems very busy to me and the atmosphere both day and night has been a delight. Market night on the 23rd was very, very busy and seems to get bigger every year. In the Lido area there have been a few changes since my last visit.......the Tourist...More

Sunrise hike - Pico do Arieiro (0 Replies)
I’d like to do the sunrise hike from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo. I contacted Up Mountain Madeira and they need a minimum of 4 people to do the tour and no one else has inquired. Are there any other tour companies that do the sunrise hike? I want to do a guided tour since I will be traveling solo and without a car.
