Welcome to Madeira Island, the island of Eternal Spring! I'm Carlos, a Mountain Guide with more than 14 years of experience. I lived in the island until my first 18 years, then I had studied for 6 years in IT outside of the island. During that time and a little bit more I was travelling around Europe. When I realized that Mountain Guide was my profession I came back to island, until these days I'm sharing lovely moments with locals and foreigners, and making their vacations one of the best in their lives with plenty of memorable experiences.

An amazing experience being above the clouds for sunrise. Carlos led the group expertly and made sure nobody was left behind. The walk to the peak from the car park was relatively short but really rewarding, especially on a clear night under the stars. We really appreciated the tea and snack to get us up the final climb and the final view was spectacular as the sun came up - well worth the early start.

superbe expédition, Carlos est prévenant et attentif à nos besoins. Il partage ses connaissances au sujet de l'île de Madère. Levé de soleil un peu couvert mais le nombre incalculable d'étoiles filantes observés rend l'expérience unique !

It was one of the most memorable moments watching the sun rise on the highest peak I’ve ever been to in my life. Carlos is a really nice guy too, what I especially appreciated was that he had extra jackets, gloves, headlights etc. so we could actually enjoy it despite the low temperature. He even brought tea and a little snack to the top. Thank you, highly recommend!
