A walk through nature

Whether you prefer a gentle stroll or a thrilling hike, a Sao Jorge holiday caters for all. Follow the levadas that run through the Laurisilva forest and keep your camera at the ready as you reach the various miradouros around the island – you’ll see some incredible ocean views.

There’s always time for wine

You can’t experience a Madeira holiday without learning about and sampling some of the local food and drink. So, why not visit the Vine and Wine Museum where you can discover and taste the traditional Malvasia wine which is produced on the island?

A sweet history

Discover the history of the northern part of the island with a trip to Calhau de Sao Jorge, where you’ll find the ruins of an old sugarcane mill. Snap a photo of the remaining stone entrance which perfectly frames the blue waters and pebbled beach in the background.
