Slightly hair raising ride down 2k shiny roads- not for the faint hearted!
Aug 2019
We ventured one way up the cable car to the Monte gardens at the top and walked to our left to get to the Monte toboggan run. We had two toboggans one for three teenagers and one for my hubby and me. You had to queue to get the toboggans, rather brusque manager who points to the next one- don't go to the office to pay just queue and pay as you get on the toboggan it was 30 euros for 2 of us and 45 for three- it's only a 2km trip but we spent most of it going sideways- slightly worrying at times!! Very steep road and the taxi's all wait at the bottom for you to get in and ride back to the City however it's straight downhill and quite a lovely walk with lots to see and notice as long as your knees hold out!! Takes about 20/30 minutes to stroll down the road to the city centre. The toboggan guys were whispering for a tip however it was 75 euros for a 10 minute experience so they didn't get any!! x

My son and I did the downhill toboggan ride in a traditional Madeira wicker basket and it was epic! This is a must do for anyone visiting Madeira.

Mar 2018 • Friends
On a Norwegian Cruise, we had a shore trip to the basket, toboggan ride. It sounded weird, but we did it anyway and glad we did. I have never taken a "ride" like this before but it was worth it. It was included in our tour so there was no separate "cost" for this ride. If you have an opportunity to do this, I strongly recommend it. The basket, toboggan, is more like a 2 seat wooden sled that they push down the local streets. It was fun and very different.
