It is really something unique. Where's the other place where you can experience something similar? The only opportunity to go down the hill in sled on normal streets. Quite crazy.

A bit of fun and adventure like no other. The sled takes you about halfway down but it is lots of fun. An experience that shouldn’t be missed after looking at the church and drinking a coffee at the lovely cafe below the church.

It is a must for everyone who visits Maderia. We were a group of two couples over 60 and it was absolutely thrilling.

This was such a fun trip. It was amazing being pushed down the hill by two locals who were in complete control of the Toboggan Sled.well worth the wait in line.
