Green Devil Safari was created for the benefit of the traveller who wants to explore and mingle with locals, eager for unique and tailor-masde experiences.
For those seeking excitement and inspiration, this program is for you.
We, the drivers/guides want to take you to secret places which even local seldom know; we love to see your reaction, your overwhelming impressions because we want you to return to Madeira and maybe bringing friends. Our goal is to make yourselves honorary Madeirans and pass on the love we have for this island, and if we must, we will use poncha to reach our goal!

This tour begins with a small peregrination and you will feel blessed with this views you´ll have; take a deep breath and admire the terraces where the vines produce the fruit responsible for the nectar that throughout centuries have delighted admirers. Our guides will transport you back in time along the rural northeast coast, where almost nothing changed in the past 50 years. It´s indescribable what you will feel on the off-road tracks that wind through the dense Laurissilva forest all along the way; the scents, the sounds and the views will leave you dazzled.
