Description

Set off on a pleasantly docile walk along the levada that's perfect for hikers both young and old. Admire spellbinding views from Madeira's high ridges, spotting rural villages, terraced hillsides, sloping vineyards, and the many hues of the Atlantic Ocean.

Start from Boa Morte and head to Cabo Girão on the south coast, witnessing the island's transition from subtropical forest in the north to more arid terrain in the south. The best way to explore Maderia is on foot, thanks to its small size and interior networked by levadas, the island's famed hand-carved irrigation channels.

Listen as your knowledgeable guide explains the history of the region, expertly leading you along the levada route. Snap a few pictures of the incredible sights, enjoying the unique sensory experience provided by the island.
