Calheta is a town on the west side of Madeira, famous for its warm climate, exotic & native vegetation and also where some part of our experience will take place. The participants don't need to have a lot of experience in mountain biking/cross country. I'll normally design a programme for us mainly depending on your experience and skills. This experience is totally private and only with a maximum of 6 participants so you can enjoy every second and at your pace. During our mountain biking tour we'll encounter amazing places with breathtaking scenery, eucalyptus and indigenous forests where I'll explain and introduce you to my favourite and hidden places. We'll drive our bicycles through this amazing tracks between heather trees and century old laurel trees and sometimes we'll also ride along the famous water canals (The Levadas), exotic fruits and the fauna & flora from the region. Trully a rich and unique experience providing total excitement and adventure right in the heart of the World Heritage of UNESCO. Join me in this adventure and be prepared to be active, to see and learn something new in this breathtaking experience! If you've your own bicycle and if you need assistance or if you want to do your own programme I can provide you the transportation to and from the trails. Please send me an sms for more information.
My name's Bruno and I was born and raised in this wonderful island called Madeira where I live and work to this day. I'm an official and certified mountain guide with already 16 years of experience in this area. My passion for the nature, different cultures and the mountains started when I was about 12-years-old following my grandfather's steps as a shepherd in our small community. What has always been a passion became later a job, today I guide anyone willing to know more about our history, our culture & traditions and this amazing flora & fauna unique in the world. Shall we start?!
In the end of our tour we'll make a stop in a traditional bar where I'll offer you a drink.
I'll supply the transport to pick you up in the hotel/house and bring you back in the afternoon.
I'll provide the bicycles, the safety helmet and the protection gloves.
Using my local knowledge and all this years of experience I'll take you to my favourite and less frequented corners of Madeira where each place that we will visit has their own history, excitement and traditions. I'll offer you a unique acess to very special places where you can totally feel the experience and discover the way people live and work their lands on a dayly basis including the banana & sugar cane plantations, culture and gastronomy.
14歳以上の方6名まで参加できます。 Some experience in mountain biking / cross country will be very essential in our tour.
If you're choosing a mountain bike tour, I'll advice to take a rucksack, fleece or a wind jacket and good shoes are essential because they will play an important role in all our activities.
