What we offer
We offer the opportunity to experience authentic tours, respecting the locals and the communities. A different way to get to know Madeira in its essence, from its genuine culture, to its cultural customs and mainly with the surrounding nature, which combines in its unique way the Laurissilva forest, the mountain, the microclimates and the sea.
We offer personalized solutions adjusted to the capacities, needs and aspirations of all who come to us, family and friends, always accompanied and supported by experienced local guides.
We offer a new way to experience Madeira, so that you can take memories, learnings and stories to tell.
what we don’t offer
Our mission and values in this project are not compatible with:
Activities designed for large groups. The activities proposed for this project are characterized by being personalized and directed mainly to the main client, who can then come along with his or her family and friends;
Activities that are invasive of the space and the surrounding community. In the planning and execution of the activities to be developed, we always have in mind the respect for the places we will frequent and the community that surrounds them.
In our company management philosophy and in relation to all stakeholders, we adopt the “Leave no Trace” policy in which we advocate:
- avoid leaving any human footprint harmful to Nature
- ensure the preservation of Nature and its natural habitats
- preserve the traditions, habits and cultures of each community
- preserve and care for monuments, historical sites and other valuable cultural, architectural and social heritage
- to respect the life of communities, contributing to their renewal
- to educate and sensitize all visitors with good environmental and social practices
WITH A LEGACY
In all our initiatives we will donate 2.5% of sales to support an association.
