Gay Madeira tourGet ready to explore a rugged, evergreen paradise with dramatic rock formations, lush vegetation, and spectacular views over fascinating volcanic landscapes and the vast Atlantic. Hike along blossoming slopes and roaring waterfalls, and in the evening relax with a glass of local vinho. Some consider the flowery island of Madeira to be the winter escape of choice for retirees – but for us, the rugged isle is a true outdoor paradise! Madeira has the ingredients for adventure.

Discover Madeira Gay Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Bem-vindo a Madeira!
Upon your arrival in Funchal (flights not included), you’ll be greeted at the airport and taken to your hotel where you’ll meet the other guys and start getting excited about your gay adventure over dinner.

Meals Included: Welcome Dinner
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal


Funchal gay trip


Day 2
Olá, Madeira!
After a hearty breakfast, your guide Pedro will take you on a jam-packed city tour of Funchal, the capital of the island.

You’ll explore the old town with its idyllic city gardens, stroll down the spacious Avenida Arriaga, and marvel at the Gothic cathedral. At the indoor market, you’ll take in the rich colours and delicious smells of the delicacies, flowers, herbs, and exotic fruits sold there.

Afterwards, you’ll soar over Funchal in a cable car to Monte, a quarter situated high above the city. If you’re up for a thrilling experience, why not take a toboggan ride down to Funchal?

The afternoon is yours to "see and be seen" on the Avenida do Mar or maybe even to go kayaking! Pedro will show you where you can rent a kayak at the pier (additional fee).

Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal


Marocos Madeira gay trip


Day 3
Follow the levada
Lace up your hiking boots! It’s time to go hiking.

Once you’ve reached Marocos in the east of the island, you’ll set off on a two-and-a-half-hour tour along a levada (a typical Madeiran aqueduct) through lively towns and deep valleys.

Back in Funchal, spend the afternoon relaxing either at the hotel pool or on a one-of-a-kind sailing excursion (additional fee) on a replica of Columbus’ flagship the Santa Maria. The tour is an experience in itself – and with a bit of luck, dolphins will leap out of the waves as you sail past. The perfect end to another day of your gay holiday.

Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal


Funchal gay tour


Day 4
Jagged slopes and ocean views
Follow the call of Madeira’s west coast – your first stop is Cabo Girão! Those brave enough to walk on the glass floor of the viewing platform will be rewarded with a breathtaking view down the jagged slopes.

Back on solid ground, you’ll learn all there is to know about Madeiran culture at the Ethnographic Museum of Ribeira Brava.

Now you’re off to Madalena do Mar, where you’ll take a leisurely two-kilometre stroll along a levada through lush banana plantations. The hike ends at Ponta do Pargo, the island’s westernmost point.

You’ll take a quick detour to the Garganta Funda waterfall with yet another thrilling vertical drop to behold.

To round off the day, you’ll have a glass of vinho at an organic winery before heading back to Funchal with a smile on your face.

Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal


Madeira gay tour - Ponta de sao Lourenco


Day 5
Volcanic discoveries
Get ready for a "rocky" time on the São Lourenço peninsula.

Following close behind your guide Pedro, you’ll hike for about three hours along the rugged eastern tip of the island. The stunning rock formations along the way hint at the force with which the island was catapulted out of the sea 20 million years ago. You’ll learn about the volcanic eruptions that shaped the island and left their mark in the form of red and ochre layers in the cliffs.

On the way back, you’ll stop at Porto da Cruz, where one of the island’s liquid delights awaits you: rum! Your gay taste buds will be thrilled, as you taste your way through a distillery before taking the bus back to Funchal.

Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal


Madeira gay adventure


Day 6
Up on the roof of Madeira
Make sure to have a good breakfast – today you’ll be embarking on a majestic tour of Pico do Arieiro (approx. 5 hours, steady footing required).

Up and down the narrow paths you’ll go, sometimes rather steep, around sharp rocky ridges to Pico Ruivo, Madeira’s highest peak.

From here, the island lies at your feet – a sight to behold!

After a well-deserved break, you’ll hike down to Achada do Teixeira. From there the bus will take you to the quaint village of Santana, which is known for its colourful thatched farmhouses.

At a quinta, you’ll learn how to make the island’s No. 1 beverage – poncha!

After mixing your own drink, you’ll enjoy every sip while recalling the day’s gay adventure.

Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal


Madeira gay beach


Day 7
Let your imagination run free
Take the day to discover other fascinating spots on the island or maybe you just want to chill out at the beach!

It’s entirely up to you – make the most of your gay holiday.

In the evening you’ll meet up with the guys one last time to celebrate before it’s time to say "goodbye" – but hopefully not forever!

Meals Included: Breakfast & Dinner
Accommodation: The Views Baia Hotel, Funchal

Madeira gay trip


Why Madeira?

• With its diverse landscape made up of rugged cliffs, captivating bays, breathtaking waterfalls and mist-covered mountain plateaus, Madeira is a hiker’s paradise (video).

Dolce vita, the Italian way of life, is not just about living your best life – it’s about letting life inspire you. Climb the countless stairways – past the olive trees and vine terraces, through the fishing harbours and along the picturesque coves (perfect for swimming!) – in your search for inspiration!

• The island is famous for its flowers, which are in full bloom all year round. Humans have developed a fascinating cultural landscape here consisting of lush banana plantations, blossoming fields, quaint harbour villages and extensive irrigation canals.

• Despite Catholicism being the most predominant religion, the Portuguese are extremely tolerant.

• On "rural" Madeira, tolerance is steadily increasing despite the absence of a gay community. Same-sex couples no longer draw attention.

• As early as 2001, a law was passed protecting same-sex partnerships. Marriage has been recognised by law since 2010. There is also a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation.
