  • We chose to take the trip with Madeira Explorers. A super trip to €37 per person. Started at the top in a breach blown Rabacal. But it disappeared after a 30 min where we came down from the mountains. From here it went down the stairs-along the Levadas and past several waterfalls. Where there also was time for lunch. All the while our guide explained a lot about the island and its flora and life on the island. In order not to get back to the start. We finished off with 800 metres to go through a tunnel at the end. Nice trip. But if you are afraid of heights. So you should probably think twice about. There was then more on 60 + who went on the trip.

  • Hike made early March with a guide. It was raining that day, but nevertheless, I enjoyed this hike. On the way, meets with waterfalls, small stone paths, lush vegetation, little birds in some places, fish... Hiking does not have a lot of effort by its ups and its downs. In any case, the route proposed by the guide was not difficult. Beware, however the low trees that may surprise if you look too rather than walking in front of you. The only bad surprise, at the end of the hike, is that it took to pass through a tunnel where the flashlight was necessary and that we had the feet in the water. It had so much until we get in Madeira that the tunnel was waterlogged, sometimes dangerous because we couldn't see the holes formed on the ground. We came out of the tunnel with the shoes and socks soaked besides trousers wet up to their knees. If you start the ride, avoid the tunnel at the risk of the feet soaked throughout the hike. Apart from this nasty surprise at the end, I really enjoyed this walk, maybe because I love the waterfalls also.

  • We toured several levadas (ancient brought water to the South of the island) during our stay in Madeira, and this was the first, and one that we liked. Travel between dazzling scenery, cliffs cut peak, waterfalls, streams, lush green... A JOY!
