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 had our 4x4 adventure with Up Mountain Madeira on 16/08/16, which was after the fires widely reported on the news. By the time we arrived in Madeira on the 11/08/16 these fires were either under control or completely out and this had no effect on our visit to the island or our 4x4 trip whatsoever. The 4x4 trip was... More

We did the Eastern full day tour and it was one of the best days we've had on this or any holiday! Paolo, our guide, was very friendly, professional and extremely informative about the jeep, the flora and fauna and the areas we travelled through. My partner has disabilities and nothing was too much trouble, for example, Paolo had reserved... More

The seven of us (four children and three adults) are sitting in a local restaurant after enjoying a great morning with our Guide Nico (Nicolau). We were picked up from the hotel at 8:45am by Nico in his 4x4 authentic jeep as promised and immediately were impressed by the cleanliness and his charming personality. He was engaging with the children... More

Had a great 1/2 day tour with Miguel on Monday. He shared his love of Madeira with us and was very knowledgeable about the island. He answered all our questions and his enthusiasm was infectious. It was great fun standing up in the jeep particularly off road and we had lots of stops and photo opportunities. We would highly recommend... More

Fantastic tour- Paulo our driver was knowledgable, kind, interesting and we had such a good time. The kids loved it and it was fine for them standing in the back when we got out of town. In town they had seatbelts and booster seats provided. The stop at Mario's bar and shop was really good too where we sampled lots... More

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
