What you'll do

Calheta is a town on the west side of Madeira, famous for its  warm climate, exotic & native vegetation and also where some part of our experience will take place.

The participants don't need to have a lot of experience in mountain biking/cross country. I'll normally design a programme for us mainly depending on your experience and skills. This experience is totally private and only with a maximum of 6 participants so you can enjoy every second and at your pace.

During our mountain biking tour we'll encounter amazing places with breathtaking scenery, eucalyptus and indigenous forests where I'll explain and introduce you to my favourite and hidden places.

We'll drive our bicycles through this amazing tracks between heather trees and century old laurel trees and sometimes we'll also ride along the famous water canals (The Levadas), exotic fruits and the fauna & flora from the region.  Trully a rich and unique experience providing total excitement and adventure right in the heart of the World Heritage of UNESCO.

Join me in this adventure and be prepared to be active, to see and learn something new in this breathtaking experience!

If you've your own bicycle and if you need assistance or if you want to do your own programme I can provide you the transportation to and from the trails. Please send me an sms for more information.
Other things to note
If you're choosing a mountain bike tour, I'll advice to take a rucksack, fleece or a wind jacket and good shoes are essential because they will play an important role in all our activities.

My name's Bruno and I was born and raised in this wonderful island called Madeira where I live and work to this day. I'm an official and certified mountain guide with already 16 years of experience in this area. My passion for the nature, different cultures and the mountains started when I was about 12-years-old following my grandfather's steps as a shepherd in our small community. What has always been a passion became later a job, today I guide anyone willing to know more about our history, our culture & traditions and this amazing flora & fauna unique in the world. Shall we start?!

Where you'll be

Using my local knowledge and all this years of experience I'll take you to my favourite and less frequented corners of Madeira where each place that we will visit has their own history, excitement and traditions.

I'll offer you a unique acess to very special places where you can totally feel the experience and discover the way people live and work their lands on a dayly basis including the banana & sugar cane plantations, culture and gastronomy.

This is a must do for any bike enthusiasts visiting Madeira. Bruno chose a route that involved beautiful and varied scenery, the kind that you wouldn’t otherwise see if you travelled by road or foot. Bruno tailored his route to our respective abilities. Bruno is patient and knowledgeable, and it is no problem if you are nervous and would rather take an easier route. Bruno went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable - for instance, he picked us up and dropped us off at the end. Bruno himself is a man of many talents - a civil engineer, a tour guide, a mountain climber, the list goes on - and so meeting Bruno itself is to meet one of Madeira’s most interesting locals.

Our MTB-Tour was perfect! Bruno is the best guide for this, really good communication & friendly! The tour shows this amazing nature as it goes offroad - yeah! It is so much fun, really! You don’t have to be a professional, but you should be safe to handle with a MTB (I also was a beginner, no doubt) :-) Big thanks 🙏🏼

Brilliant day of MTB with Bruno, who is an excellent host. It was my girlfriends first time and the route was a good level for her. The views are spectacular and it was lovely to receive a personalised video at the end.

Our mountain bike trip with Bruno was superb! It was a full day covering amazing scenery and views. He was patient and considerate to our different levels of ability and adapted accordingly to provide options of easy and more technical routes that then linked up. He has a wealth of knowledge on Madeira and was a pleasure to spend the day with. Would highly recommend this trip and Bruno as a guide in general.

Such a fantastic day with Bruno! Over 30km of biking through some of the most beautiful scenery on the island of Madeira. Bruno has all of the equipment needed, even providing sweatshirts at the beginning of the tour when it was foggy and chilly. He was well versed in the area and provided us with great insight about the island. Bruno was able to tailor the trip in certain segments where the beginners could take one route while the more experienced riders could a different route, always joining back up together. Bruno was great at taking photos and even put together a fun video for us afterwards! A quick note: make sure to pack enough water, snacks, and picnic lunch... you will definitely need it! The tour ends with a much deserved and earned drink at a local bar.
