Wake up and have breakfast (included in every hotel) at your own pace, you are not in a group, you are on a self-guided tour.
It is important to recognize that a self-guided tour is different from a self-contained tour, where you’re responsible for everything from planning the routes, arranging hotels, luggage transfers, carrying your gear, etc.
On a self-guided tour to Madeira island, our team arranges everything. Meaning that each tour includes a book with information about every stage: a small description, a map, sites to visit, eating spots, climbing and distance, water points, open hours, and suggestions about the track.
We do our best to prepare a detailed tour for you, so we recommend some planning and studying of the stages.
Madeira Hike by PNT will support you 24 hours a day on a self-guided tour with anything you might need. Our team will back you up in case you need it, whether because of bad weather, sickness, needing a doctor or a pharmacy, route problems, or anything that might happen.
Make sure the batteries of the GPS (Garmin Oregon 700) are charged, the phone is charged, that you have your maps, money and travel documents, and all the gear included in the gear list.
And on a biking tour, check your bike for oil and check the tires.
Leave your luggage at the front desk ready for transfer (optional service), and leave the hotel.
Make sure you know at what time the sunset is and manage the time spent visiting and riding.
Every day at the end of the day study the next stage, make sure you know where the water points are, and the places where you can stop for food.
We give you the best advice possible regarding the places you will pass along the stage, so make sure you have a great adventure but with the feeling of being safe.
