Madeira Plunge 2015

Madeira New Year Plunge 2015 by Nature Meetings

What is MADEIRA PLUNGE?

Madeira Plunge is a celebration of the New Year with a plunge in the sea at 12h00 on 1st January 2015 at Ponta Gorda / Poças do Governador swimming complex in Funchal.

That’s such a great ideia!

We couldn’t agree more!

Where does it come from?

The New Year plunge is a tradition started in The Netherlands which is now spreading all over the world. It started with a swim club celebrating the new year with a swim. Today, Unox/Unilever sponsor the event at many locations in Holland.

Why Madeira?

Because the water is warmer on January 1st!

Is it just fun for the sake of fun?

Yes. But we’re donating 50% of the revenue to Acreditar, a Portuguese charity who helps children with cancer.

Can I join?

Sure! You must! For details check our page about MADEIRA PLUNGE 2015 and the event page on Facebook.

Madeira, premium Wine Tourism

Madeira Wine has a long history, having been used in several memorable occasions, including the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Now, Madeira positions itself as a premium wine, not only due to its unique characteristics but also its scarcity due to the small annual production but the fact there there is only a finite amount of Vintage (over tenty years) and Colheita (less than twenty years, but vintage quality) Madeira Wines.

Chris Blandy from Blandy´s Madeira Wine gives his insight into the future of Madeira Wine and wine tourism in Madeira in Harpers article “Chris Blandy: big changes afoot in Madeira as premium wines gain traction

For wine tours in Madeira, including both traditional Madeira Wines as well as the new table wines being produced in Madeira, visit to vines and Wine lodges as well as and great gastronomic experiences, contact Nature Meetings for a bespoke “wine lovers” programme, both for individuals and groups.

Madeira – the new wellness destination

Madeira - wellness is the new black

Madeira – Wellness is the New Black

Wellness is the New black” writes Anni Hood, Founder and Director of Wellness Business Consultancy for World Travel Market 2014.

Wellness is one of the main themes at the World Travel Market 2014, with outstanding panel participants including John Bevan from Spafinder, Steve Dunne from Brighter Group and Daniel Pearce from TTG, and  many more outstanding speakers during the various panels.

 

Madeira´s outstnading climate and short distances means that wellness products can also be offered to cruise passengers visiting the island for a short stay.
