    Don't forget

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In Madeira never is very cold or too hot, so, if you go there during the summer’s months, take thin clothes.
    When I was there, in April, it was a warm weather but when we go to the highest peaks it was rather cold, so don’t forget a coat.

    Photo Equipment: Don't, but don't forget your camera, you will have great places to take amazing photos.

    Miscellaneous: Take a look to my Tip " The Weather in Madeira"

    Heading for the Hills

    Madeira at dusk.

    Luggage and bags: Bring a little backpack to carry water and maps in case you decide to venture off on a delightful levada walk.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I stayed way up in the mountains where it seems to rain every day, so pack some light rain gear for warm went weather.....and maybe a little umbrella.

    Also as there are wonderful levada walks throughout the island, pack comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to get carried away walking for miles.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellant is a necessity anywhere that you might be tempted to go walking through the forests.

    Photo Equipment: I would bring plenty of spare memory for your digital camera as the scenery here is so very beautiful that you'll just keep on snapping.

    Pack lightly...

    Luggage and bags: ... if you are like me as I always pack too much.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light clothing, sandals, comfy walking / hiking shoes if so inclined. Even if it looks cloudy and so-so in the morning, chances are it WILL be a sunny day.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun-lotion, and dont forget your hat as the sun can be rather strong.

    Photo Equipment: Most definitely, as there are SOO many opportunities for great pics. I took my trusted little Olympus digital, with a reg. film-Olympus along just in case, and of course a Video camera is almost a must.
    Because I like so see the images as soon as I can, I took along my laptop to transfer the digital images on the PC after each trip. In those 10 days I probably took about 600 pics, but then again I am a shutterbug :-))

    Miscellaneous: What I found handy is one of those inexpensive light jackets with umpteen pockets to keep small items (see pic).
