Road ER 101

The old ER 101 route is a breathtakingly scenic road that stretches around the island of Madeira in a full circle. You'll drive through tunnels, over hills and past steep slopes along the way, with the occasional adrenaline rush of a particularly sharp turn and a permanent view of the magnificent Atlantic. The route is only recommended to confident drivers, so do opt for a taxi if navigating challenging roads doesn't exactly excite you (opt for cars with an automatic gearbox for tricky uphill starts if you choose to rent).

Do & See

Most activities can be planned in hotels or through specialized agencies that will help you make the most of your journey. These experiences range from outdoor activities to relaxation and wellness experiences. With its spectacular landscapes and rewarding hikes, Madeira will also not disappoint nature lovers.
