Frokosten ble servert
på rommet.
Vi bodde på et anneks til
hotel Victoria.
Middagen spiste vi på
hotellet.


The island of Madeira has a surface area of 459 square
miles (741 km2), (35 miles long and 13 miles wide).

Thanks to their excellent geographical location and
mountainous relief, these islands have surprisingly
balmy weather, with moderate humidity and pleasant
average temperatures of 25ºC in the summer and 17ºC
in the winter.

The sea temperature is also very mild, thanks to the
influence of the warm Gulf Stream, averaging 22ºC
in the summer and 18ºC in the winter.

 Madeira_Funchal_Lido
På vei til Lido for å bade.
Vannet i saltvannsbassenget (det var bare ett i 1969)
virka mye kaldere enn vannet i sjøen, så vi bada i sjøen.

 Madeira_Funchal_Lido
Bølgene var ganske kraftige, og man måtte beregne
godt når man gikk ut i vannet og opp igjen.

The Lido swimming pool complex is probably the most popular bathing area in Funchal and one of the best on Madeira Island. Besides a large and a small seawater pool, freshly filled every
day, it also has direct sea access for those who prefer the feel
of the ocean for a swim.


This bathing complex, a favourite with the locals as well as the
tourists, offers sun beds, parasols, changing rooms,
lockers, kindergarten, table tennis, diving centre,
water slide, beachwear shop, baby care room, restaurant,
three snack bars, tourist information centre, first aid centre,
lifeguards and a car park…
An endless number of facilities!


The pools of this complex received the 'Blue Flag’ award that
certifies the good water quality.

Nonnenes Dal
Curral das Freiras ('Nuns Valley') is a small village nestling
 between almost perpendicular mountains in the heart of
the island.

The huge cauldron in which Curral das Freiras is sitting
was either formed by erosion, which is the more recent
theory, or as many still believe, by volcanic activity.

In 1566 the nuns from the Santa Clara convent fled from
pirates attacking Funchal and found seclusion here
where they also brought the convent treasure.

Grått og kaldt julen 1969, nydelig vær i mars 2014.

The Pico do Arieiro is with its altitude of 1818 meters the third
highest peak on the island. Fortunately it can be reached by car.
Views are spectacular up here and when there is very good
weather, it is even possible to see Porto Santo, the
neighbouring island, which is situated 30 nautical miles to
the north.  http://www.madeira-web.com/PagesUK/pico-arieiro.html

Eira do Serrado Viewpoint is one of the most beautiful
viewpoints in Madeira. From here you can admire 6 majestic mountains and, at the foothill, you’ll find Curral das

Tribute to the discoverer of America, who lived in
Funchal in the years of 1475, 1480 and 1492.

It was created in 1940 by Henrique Moreira.

There are several words synonymous to Monte and
toboggan ride’ is surely one of them! Originally a fast
means of transport down to Funchal for people living in
Monte, these toboggan sledges appeared around 1850. 

Still in use today, they attract thousands of tourists every
year who want to make this exciting experience of sliding
at high speed on narrow, winding streets down to Funchal.
These two-seater wicker sledges glide on wooden runners,
pushed and steered by two men traditionally dressed in
white cotton clothes and a straw hat, using their
rubber-soled boots as brakes.

The downhill journey to Funchal is made in about 10 minutes
on a total course of 2 km, reaching at times a speed of
48 km/hour.
Adventurous, yet safe, an ‘old-fashioned’ toboggan ride to
make your way down from Monte is the perfect contrast to the high-technology cable car going up to Monte. 

Don’t miss out on it!

Funchal flyplass i 1969

Vi sitter på flyplassen
 og venter på flyet hjem.
Vi hadde hatt en veldig
finuke på Madeira og
vært veldig heldig med været.
Bortsett fra dagen vi var
på rundtur på øya, og gjerne skulle hatt litt utsikt.
