I was born in Portugal but I grew up in the south of Germany. Because of that I speak fluently Portuguese and German. Enchanted by the natural beauty of Madeira, I decided to make it my home in 2000.
I live in Germany, but for some years Madeira has become my second home. So I spend the summer in Germany and the winter time on Madeira. I love hiking on Madeira, exploring the island by e-bike, swimming in the Atlantic and, of course, the varied Madeiran cuisine with lots of fish and meat.
I was born and raised on Madeira. In my free time I love to go for a walk in nature. For me, Madeira is the best place to do that.
For many years I worked as a truck driver and know Madeira very well. Now I work for AlbanoAktiv as a bike mechanic and driver. It is fun to pick up the guests at the airport or to bring them to the hikes. Because we mainly have German-speaking guests, I study 3 evenings a week in a German school.
I've been cycling since I was a kid, I love nature and trails of all kinds make my heart beat faster! Biking is my passion and I want to share my enthusiasm with my guests. Experience our island on two wheels for a perfect holiday!
Since my childhood I ride bicycles and enjoy hang gliding, paragliding, canyoning and camping. Besides, I'm an airplane pilot and know Madeira like no other.
I live in Germany and like to spend my holidays on Madeira to hike. After the island has enchanted me with its variety of flowers and the wonderful landscape, I am pleased to be able to also inspire our guests of this.
Thank you for your trust day after day on tours and trails.
We really appreciate it and enjoy the great moments with you. Be it while hiking, in the biker saddle or at the end of the day in the Poncha pub.
