Why not try your hand at canyoning, one of Madeira’s most popular outdoor activities with huge waterfalls and fun abseils, or enjoy the stunning rugged coastline on a surf lesson or sea-kayaking activity. The island is also known for its abundant marine life, we’d highly recommend adding on a boat trip with whale watching as part of your active break here.

10 of us went on an adventure holiday this November to Portugal with Big was better than... the best holiday i can even think of! Heleen and Dan are perfect hosts. They organised everything making for a seamless unforgettable experience. Paddleboarding and surfing were our main activities, both being new experiences for all of us. The instructors were great and catered for every level. Cant wait to book up another holiday with these lovely people, im totally hooked. If you want to try new activities, enjoy the outdoors and enjoy having fun with a group of people then Big Blue Adventures are the ones for the job 🙂read more

Why We Love This…

“Madeira is such an awesome destination because it feels super tropical with all the colourful fruits & flowers and palmtrees across the island, but you’re still just in Europe! I love going on a long hike up the mountains or through the famous levadas, and exploring all the picturesque streets of Funchal. But canyoning has to be on top of my list for fun outdoor adventures!
