Join us for tropical vibes & world-class outdoor activities like canyoning and whale watching in Madeira, Portugal!

On our group activity holidays in Madeira we’ll take you exploring around the world-class Portuguese island and share some awesome adventures with you. Stay in the picturesque capital Funchal or opt for a relaxing retreat surrounded by Hawaii-esque nature.

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. Hiking routes in Madeira are endless, whether you are an experienced hiker wanting to take on a mountain or if you fancy an easygoing walk through the tropical levadas, the island offers a spectacular guided hike for everyone! Madeira also has a lovely warm subtropical climate, which makes it a great all year round destination.

Just got back from my hen do in Portugal and Nuno was an incredible tour guide for us for the... Saturday. Not only did he make the stand up paddleboarding and paddle board yoga really enjoyable, he was just an absolute delight. He greeted us with pastel de natas in the morning and was very attentive to everyone in the group - keeping everyone smiling the whole day. He was even helpful recommending places to visit over WhatsApp before we even got to Portugal! 100% recommend. thanks for making my hen extra special 😊 obrigada!read more

We booked a corporate retreat with Daniel and the Big Blue Adventures team. Right from the start... Daniel was accommodating and made the booking process extremely easy and advised us on the best packages for our team.

We settled on the coasteering package in the Algarve, and it turned out to be the perfect choice.

We were met by Nuno and the team, who picked all 16 of us up on time at our hotel (they even brought us pastel de natas!) Right from the start, they ensured everything we needed was sorted. The coasteering activity was awesome and the guys leading it were extremely helpful, professional and fun. The lunch that was provided was perfect for after the activities, and the restaurant setting of Benagil was fantastic! Nuno even brought us for and unexpected hike and tour around a local cove.

Big blue adventures made the whole experience easy for us, and ensured we had the best possible time during our short stay in Portugal! The team loved it, and I will definitely be booking again for next year!

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!
