Book now with Atlantic Holidays for some great deals

Following on from the success of their 2011 programme Atlantic Holidays have launched their 2012 programme from Belfast International Airport.

Boasting a sub-tropical climate, an abundance of natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage, Madeira is an irresistible holiday destination for discerning holidaymakers.

Before you even step foot on the island, you will be impressed by its breathtaking beauty; sheer cliffs, deep ravines and ragged mountain peaks soaring to over 1800 metres, which hint at the island's volcanic origins.

Famously referred to as 'The Floating Garden' of the Atlantic, Madeira's rich botanical heritage is everywhere, from the many public gardens and colourful displays in and around the capital, Funchal, to the island's luxuriant interior.

The charming, hospitable people offer a delightful welcome across the island, and in many of the inland villages you can see the local traditions still very much alive, such as embroidery and wickerwork making.
