Discovering parts of the island we did not know existed

«We took the "Green experience" tour, running mornings and taking you to the centre and N-W of the island from Funchal.
Places we visited include Pico do Arieiro (1,818m), which is the 2nd highest point on the island, Poiso (Poncha), Ribeiro frio (trout farm), Santana, Pico do Facho among others.
Our driver, Mario, was friendly and knowledgeable, kept us well entertained.
He pointed out the numerous fruits that grow on the island: papaya, mango, avocado, custard apple, banana, banana passion fruit, citrus fruits, kumquats, bilberries, kiwi... No wonder the market in Funchal is so well stocked with local produce!
The audio guide is good (though the earphones do not stay in place), and the seats are a little narrow.»
