Madeira Explorers, Funchal

4.1
#3 of 63 in Trails in Portugal
Explore the rugged countryside and crisscrossing trails of a wild Portuguese island with Madeira Explorers, a tour company utilizing the region's historical network of canals. Originally constructed for farm irrigation, the levadas and their corresponding maintenance routes stretch for more than 2,500 km (1,553 mi) around Madeira. Join in on one of the leisure walks, each focusing on a different region or series of sites of the island. You'll find that they are designed for different levels of experience and capability, so you can embark on anything from a full-day hike to an easy stroll. Seize the chance to see some of the local flora and fauna, as well as the multitude of gardens, beaches, and ocean views. Though the company can provide backpacks and walking sticks, be sure to bring your own comfortable hiking boots or other sturdy footwear.
