de Sousa Lopes

I was born in Portugal, but grew up in the south of Germany and therefore speak Portuguese and German. Enchanted by the natural beauty of Madeira, I decided in 2000 to make it my home. After completing my apprenticeship as a Guia de Montanha, I started my own business with AlbanoAktiv in 2010 and love to bring Madeira so close to my guests when hiking and biking that they always want to come back.


Maria de Freitas

I was born in France, but shortly afterwards my parents returned with me to their home Madeira, where I grew up. When I discovered my passion for hiking, I trained as a Guia de Montanha. I've been with AlbanoAktiv from the start and love to bring guests closer to flora and fauna on the hikes. You can also find me in the office.

I speak German, English and French.



I was born and raised in Madeira. Like so many Madeirans, I went to Venezuela for 15 years. I worked there as a driver.The longing for Madeira was stronger and so I came back to where my family also lives. I am a driver and contact person for everyone and everything because I know everything and everyone in Madeira.

4 Wanderungen mit Albano
Wir haben im Feburar 2024 4 Wanderungen mit Albano durchgeführt. Wanderungen und Transport waren perfekt organisiert. Der interessierte Wanderer konnte auch sehr viel über die Flora der Insel lernen. Für uns ein rundum sorglos Paket. Es war für uns eine sehr schöne Zeit. Gertrud & Peter

Fünf wunderschöne MTB Touren
Ich habe fünf Tage MTB mit AlbanoAktiv gebucht. Wir hatten tolles Wetter und konnten fünf schöne Touren fahren. Es war eine Kombination aus tollen landschaftlichen Eindrücken und flowigen Trails. Albano und Erich haben die Touren individuell auf das. Fahrkönnen angepasst. Herzlichen Dank für die super Betreuung.
