Wicker Toboggan Sled Ride

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Karl0567 on June 18, 2003

At the foot of the Monte Church is where you can take the famous wicker tobogan sled ride down the mountain. This is one of the wacky must-try things you do as a tourist. You sit in a large wicker basket that is on two wooden runners. Two "guides" alternately steer and push as you go down the steep mountainside streets back into the downtown area of Funchal.
