A wonderful Half-Day Tour visiting & observing São Vicente’s Volcanoes & Caves. All this topped with wonderful landscapes and a few new spots to visit.

Going in direction to São Vicente’s Volcanoes & Caves. These caves were formed 890 thousand years ago due to a volcanic eruption that had its starting point in Paul da Serra (Madeira’s highest plateau) and is now open to the general audience. Observe small water lakes during the path taking in all the cave’s beauty — approx. 1000m — during a 30 min guided Tour (Portuguese & English).
