24 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Madeira Island

Madeira Island is Europe’s hidden gem you simply have to visit. During our road trip we hiked through the clouds, tasted some of the best liquor and walked many colourful gardens. The best part? Although we headed there during the high-season, we had most places all to ourselves! I don’t believe it’s going to stay like this much longer, so hurry up and fly there while it’s still very authentic!

Here are some photos to help encourage you to purchase that plane ticket and explore one of the most beautiful islands.

Plans for the Second Half of 2017

It’s almost unbelievable half of 2017 is already over, isn’t it? My exams are behind (at least for now), which means I have more time to focus on my hobbies. These days I’m busy hosting couchsurfers, editing photos from Madeira (expect many blog posts) and doing some compulsive shopping online a.k.a. booking too many flights. So, what’s next?

How Much Does One Week Road Trip in Madeira (Portugal) Cost?

It’s now been less than a month since we left Madeira island but I can’t stop daydreaming about it. I’ve never seen such diverse island before and if I could, I’d return in a heartbeat.

The best way to explore the island is by car and this is how we did it. Below you can find information on how much the whole trip cost us. Please note that I first write down the price we paid together and then calculate how much it was per person.

CAR

How Much Does One Week Road Trip in Madeira (Portugal) Cost? | The Cheerful Wanderer

Rent for 7 days + half tank of fuel: €262
Parking: €3.90 (Funchal)

Expenses per person: €132.95

The car was supposed to be cheaper, but we went for the upgrade to Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the result was a higher price. It did work out quite well, I think. Madeira is very hilly so getting a good car is necessary. Read More
