Walking around the island

Around the island in 14 days. Not quite, but you get a wonderful impression of the diversity of the landscape: lush tropical vegetation, karst Eastern Cape, almost alpine peaks, rough north, green and lovely south. And of course you will also experience the pretty little capital of Funchal. And still have a lot of time to relax.
