Madeira, the island of eternal spring, is blessed with a subtropical climate and sunshine throughout the year. One of Madeira’s greatest attractions lies in its spectacular landscape. The volcanic archipelago is famous for it’s varied scenery and abundant vegetation. All those closely drawn to nature are captivated by the splendor of myriads of flowers, misty jungle, spectacular waterfalls, rocky coasts, black beaches and rainbows of all sizes.
Each region of the island is very special. Going up North takes you into Asia, past green valleys and the typical “Laurissilva” trees. The center resembles a mixture
of the Swiss Alps and English countryside with old English farms surrounded by beautiful fields. The upland moors in the western part mirror the Highlands. And along the coastline takes you to Africa with the cliffs and gardens crowded with a variety of flowers nestled against the warm blue ocean.
Included in the bio-geographic region of Macaronesia, this European archipelago holds a natural heritage of great scientific value, which was distinguished by UNESCO as World Natural Heritage Site.
