we love our island and love to show and give you the real Madeira! The Up Mountain Madeira tours started in the beginning of 2012 , taking our visitors as friends that want to see and try Madeira, far away from the tourist crowds and boring, soulless tours and trafic tourist convoys.

We are still a very very small company, with just 2 jeeps, and our tours are always done by a certified guide, by foot or in an open classic UMM jeep, all done in a very calm safe and relaxed way.

we have our shared jeep regular tours, and also can tailor out your tour,for you and your party, focusing what you love the most, so if you think you got what it's needed, and brave enough to leave your cosy sofa, to really live Madeira, take a ride with us. discover the real traditional places, markets and people, not as catle!

  Madeira is famous for its exuberant nature and its fantastic climate, but also for its people hospitality..and we know that Madeira has so much to offer and best is hiking trails, paths and levadas by foot or by jeep.No Crowds, No Rush, small groups, great adventures!

we are a certified and bounded tourism animation company by the Portuguese government under license 118/M/2011 and all our activities are covered and insured

I booked a tour of west Madeira and the booking process was taken care of quite promptly (via messenger at our hotel). When booking a jeep trip ensure that you can cope with the type of seating in a jeep. The back seats were not as comfortable as we'd hoped. Again I think the weather really impacted on the type...

Nico showed us his beautiful island homeland in a comfortable and relaxed manner. The jeep was clean, comfortable and very capable of the task of carrying us all thru paths and roads safely. I would highly recommend this trip to all people visiting Funchal who want a different and high quality excursion. Thanks to our friend Nico. Mike and Dee

We wanted to do a jeep tour to see parts of the island we wouldn't otherwise see, and this is exactly what we received. Our guide, Miguel, was very informative and took us to some beautiful places.

We did the half day Vineyards tour with Ricardo, and it was definitely the best tour we did while in Madeira. Ricardo was extremely knowledgeable, stopping often to show us local plants and telling us about the island's agriculture. He was entertaining and kept the tour interesting. The tour itself was something else - going off road along mountainous trails... More

We took the western tour with Miguel in early April and had a really good time. As others have said the overall experience gives a unique insight into the island and the short taste of the Lavada walk was enough to entice us back to go for a longer walk.

Funny and efficient way to visit the island. Thanks to our guide. He told us a lot about Madeira on a funny way. The offroad with the truck was just exciting. And at end, 45 € for a full day is really affordable. We do not regret a second.
