About The Rising Sun Madeira Jeep Tour:

Got a few hours to spare and want to see Madeira's lush south-eastern countryside? Start this 4x4 Jeep tour from a hotel of your choice in Funchal.

It begins by travelling along the sun-kissed coast towards Garajau, where there will be a brief stop to admire the village's iconic Christ-King Statue. You'll then climb up to a vantage point overlooking Santa Cruz before taking an off-road route towards the 550 meter high Santo da Serra viewpoint.

From here the route curves north-east (partly off-road) then runs due-east down to the seaside town of Machico. This is the final stop before the Jeep's return to Funchal.
