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

We recently had the pleasure of a half day island jeep tour with Miguel as our driver and guide. A previously pre-booked trip had unfortunately to be cancelled due to severe weather conditions but Miguel certainly made up for this a couple of days later with a trip to remember. His knowledge of and passion for Madeira was evident right... More

We did two jeep tours: full day West and half day Nuns' Valley, the latter with Nico. I highly recommend doing the latter with Nico, as he is a local from that area and knows everyone! We bumped into about five of his cousins that afternoon. He is extremely knowable about the history of Madeira (and Portuguese history in general)... More

It all started on a raining Tuesday in Funchal, it was tipping it down. We met Miguel outside our hotel and clambered aboard the Jeep. Thankfully Miguel suggested we do the tour on another day as the visibility was so poor, we had a quick ride around the port and he dropped us back at the hotel. We met again... More

Did the whole day trip with my wife west with Miguel. Can't add to all the praise in Tripadvisor to this guide's passion for sharing his knowledge of his home island, he's just an amazing personality. Do the trip! He has good deals for three course lunch at 10 euros with wine and the best poncha places on the island.... More

We went on the half day tour with lovely guide David. It was amazing to see the usual sites but from different angles and down back roads that no mini bus could get down. We were also told a lot about the local plants which was very interesting. Highly recommend this trip.

I booked a full day tour for the first full day I was in Madeira and that was the best way to really truly enjoy and appreciate this beautiful island. Had the pleasure of having David show off this island, taking us to some of the best locations. He was extremely knowledgeable, outgoing and made this tour quite enjoyable. The... More

We had a wonderful half day tour with Miguel. He was a great driver, knowledgeable and passionate about the island, and a lot of fun. He took us to local spots for some great (and cheap!) Poncha. Loved the open air jeep it was a great way to explore the island.

I had booked a private half day east tour for 4, however, shortly into our trip it was evident that we were doing the west tour. Aside from that I must say the tour was excellent. Miguel, our guide, was not only very knowledgeable about the island but he was enthusiastic and really wanted to ensure we had a great... More

Explored the East coast of the island, a full day out. What a day, excitement , laughter and met some lovely travellers form Norway and Texas. Our guide, Miguel was a real joy. His knowledge of Madeira knows no bounds, his enthusiasm is infectious. Spectacular rides in the jeep off road through breathtaking scenery know only as a local can.... More
