Crossbill Guide Madeira is already the 25th title in this series of nature travel guides. The Portuguese island of Madeira is a lush green island and is also called emerald island. It lies about 850 km southwest of the Portuguese coast in the Atlantic Ocean. Together with the much smaller and drier island of Porto Santo and the sharp ridge of the Desertas, Madeira forms a small archipelago. It is a beautiful destination for nature lovers and walkers.
With the mild climate and nature that is characterized by exotic flowers and endemic bird species and with the many forests and mountains, Madeira is popular with hikers and nature lovers. The misty laurel forests and the sunny mountain tops form biotopes for a special flora and fauna. Whales, dolphins, sea turtles and a large number of special sea birds roam the coastal waters. Crossbill Guide Madeira describes 15 routes and quite a few extra spots where you can discover nature, flora and fauna. Of course it also contains extensive descriptions of landscape, geology, history, flora and fauna, and tips for finding animals and plants yourself. In this book you will also find descriptions of sea excursions to the Desertas and the remote Selvagen Islands.
Crossbill Guide Madeira is in English and again a quality guide that gives the traveler a lot of information about this beautiful island and its special species and nature.
