About Us

Meet the passionate team at Madeira Walking Holidays, united by a love for natural beauty and a dedication to creating unforgettable outdoor experiences.

Hey! My name is Klemen, and I founded Madeira Walking Holidays.

I am proud that I can say that today, we are one of the fastest-growing outdoor adventure companies in Europe. We have a burning passion for the great outdoors and a particular love for Madeira — a paradise we believe offers the ultimate playground for outdoor enthusiasts.

It was only logical for us to expand to Madeira after having already established a strong presence in other European countries. This captivating island allows us to offer even more people access to walking holidays, ranging from leisurely strolls to more demanding treks, and helping them uncover its lush, remote beauty.

Madeira’s enchanting landscapes, from lush laurel forests to rugged volcanic mountains, create an irresistible allure for those seeking adventure. The island boasts a rich tapestry of Levadas – ancient irrigation channels that double as hiking trails — that traverse diverse terrains, unveiling breathtaking vistas and hidden gems.

Nestled within Madeira’s diverse and enchanting landscapes, you’ll find a network of Veredas – traditional footpaths that meander through the island’s most picturesque settings. Once used by locals to navigate between villages and cultivate their terraced land, these paths now offer a more intimate and authentic experience for the adventurous walker.

As you tread these historic Veredas, you’ll be rewarded with unparalleled views of Madeira’s dramatic coastline, lush valleys, and vibrant villages while connecting with the island’s rich cultural heritage. 

Our walking holidays have been carefully crafted to incorporate a mix of both Levadas and Veredas, ensuring a well-rounded and immersive experience that delves deep into the heart and soul of this remarkable island.

Our team at Madeira Walking Holidays is made up of enthusiastic individuals, all avid outdoor enthusiasts with a shared love for walking and hiking. Our primary goal is to help others have as much fun outdoors and witness the stunning beauty we’ve come to cherish.

I still remember the day our team first came together, each of us sharing our unique stories and experiences from various outdoor adventures. It didn’t take long for us to realize that our passion for exploring the world outdoors united us, and together, we could create extraordinary walking holidays for others. The team has grown since then, but the bond we share remains firmer than ever.
