WALK ACROSS MADEIRA AND FEEL THE NATURE

The best way to experience Madeira is to go on a levada walk. Madeira offers hidden places in the middle of the nature, which can`t be reach by car or bus. Along the levada trails you are able to explore magical laurel forests, fascinating valleys and wild gorges, which leads you to impressive waterfalls.

But what are levadas?

Levadas are irrigation canals, built in the fifteenths century, to carry the water from the rainy north to the sunny south side of the island. Nowadays levadas provide access to Madeiras untouched nature to give unique experiences to all nature lovers.

In total you can find approximate 2500km levadas on the whole island in different altitudes and and levels of difficulty. Wether easy walks for beginners or walks for hiking lovers, we will find the perfect hike for you!

Tour Details

A hike you will never forget.. The most thrilling hike goes from the third highest to the highest mountain of Madeira: Rock formations shoot into the sky like timeless statues. All along this route the views are breathtaking. A profusion of unique plants make this place their natural habitat. In springtime these plants proudly dress themselves in a myriad of colours, displaying their fragile flowers for all to see. Near Pico Ruivo we walk through the oldest heather forest in existence. These ancient trees are many hundreds of years old and were already there when Zarco discovered and landed on the island for the first time. We soon arrive at Pico Ruivo (the highest point on the island) and the views from there are out of this world. Truly and as the saying goes “On a clear day you can see forever”.
