lido pool at Gaolosol Resort Madiera

trail running in madeira

The stunning volcanic landscape of Madeira is perfect for trail running…
The island is criss-crossed with trails and paths that make Madeira one of Europe’s best destinations for trail running.

We recommend staying at Galosol, an excellent little 4 star hotel overlooking the ocean, that also offers numerous other health and fitness activities – both on land and in the water – including a fantastic selection of complimentary daily health and fitness classes (at least 10 per day, including zumba, spinning, yoga and pilates).

Alternatively, stay at neighbouring adults-only Alpino Atlantico with full access to all of Galosol’s facilities and services.

We can organise for you to enjoy guided trail running in the care of an expert guide or, if you prefer, you can strike out on your own with a detailed map.  A private, guided 20km trail run costs around €40. The variety of terrain means that Madeira is ideal for both novices and experienced runners alike.
