ar off the coast of North Africa lies an island full of raw, natural beauty and adventures. Welcome, to Madeira!

Madeira may be small in size but it makes up for it by everything else being on a grand scale. To begin, it boasts Europes highest sea cliffs, over 1300 hiking trails and even showing off the worlds largest firework display annually. This volcanic island really is a sight to behold.

Pioneers of slow tourism, Madeira is an island that protects and conserves its natural assets with care both on land and at sea. In fact, two-thirds of Madeira’s 741km2 is classified as a nature reserve. Furthermore, the natural heritage of the Madeira archipelago makes it a prime ecological destination.

For our yoga holiday in Madeira, we will be staying in one of the oldest Quintas on the island. Perched high above the bay of Funchal with sweeping views across the city and out to sea it feels like home from the moment you arrive.

A vast estate, the property is a working farm with a vineyard and a long, fascinating history! The beautiful gardens offer the perfect sanctuary to escape too with a book as well as a large pool, tennis courts and ponds. This is not a remote location, we are only a 15-minute walk into the city even though feel fully secluded by the estate.

Honestly, there are so many adventures to be had in Madeira, we struggled to create an itinerary that squeezes it all in! However, we have created a yoga adventure that blends the best this incredible island has to offer. Hikes through the stunning trails of the levadas, cultural highlights, ocean swims and time to explore the dramatic coastline.
