Celebrate spring in the most impressive and sumptuous way in the island of Madeira! The Island is a nature lovers paradise, known as 'The Floating Garden in the Atlantic', thanks to its vibrant colored flowers throughout the year. 

During the Flower Festival, Funchal (the Island's capital), is filled is colors and scents from floral boats, Avenida Arriaga gets covered with flower carpets, while parades and folkloric performances take place daily while the celebration of the Island is in full bloom.

You will have a saved seat for the Allegoric Flower Parade, visit Madeira's renowned gardens such as the Botanical Gardens, Monte Palace Tropical Garden and Palheiro Gardens. Aside from enjoying the Island's festival, you will enjoy tours of the Island to visit the traditional Santana houses, enjoy a traditional spetada dinner with a folkloric show, have fun in a toboggan ride, visit Porto Moniz and lose your breath (for a brief moment) at the views of the impressive Pico do Arieiro.
