full day activities

MADEIRENSE | Arco da Calheta, Risco, Rochão and Quinta Pedagógica

Morning | We start by visiting one of the oldest places on the island subject to colonization and agricultural exploration after the discovery. And it will be here, in Arco da Calheta, that you will put your hands in the dough, with all the energy. We won’t tell you anything else, you really have to come and try it. Then we’ll go for a very relaxing walk where you can appreciate the natural beauty of the island.

Lunch at Rochão | We hope you have kneaded the bread well, because it will be part of your menu. In a totally relaxed way we will prepare lunch with all the Madeiran traditions. We won’t reveal the menu, but we are sure you will feel like a Madeiran. And the drinks will be on you!

Afternoon | “The Quinta Pedagógica dos Prazeres”, founded on October 1st, 2000, is a project of education, socio-cultural evolution and development of the rural environment, stimulating the local economy and fighting desertification. An educational space of defense of Nature, Traditions and Culture, with recognized public interest.” Nothing better than the people themselves to describe this magical place where you will spend good times among culture, art and traditions among the fauna and flora they preserve.

Impact: We will donate 2.5% of sales to support an association.

What will you take with you? A “kneading” experience that you will certainly try to repeat and a cultural richness embedded by Nature
