  • Somewhere on the Internet I've read that it's the best here, if the fog fall - here the clouds so have reduced. It should be really mystical. AND IT'S TRUE! We had to get lucky at such a time, coming from Porto Moniz - here at the forest home of beacon. These ancient trees - some come from the discovery period of the island - in the misty haze to see how it drips from the lichens, ferns and mosses on stem and branches and you can see just 25 m wide, this is already a madman (awesome ;-)) experience.) And then the photos it takes home. IT'S GREAT.

  • Madeira laurel forest (Laurisilva) for me was probably the strongest experience of exploring Madeira. In hard to reach areas of the island survived the volcanic substrate ecosystem vždyzelených stands of carbonated and frequent rain mist. He survived because of these places, the Portuguese colonizers, fortunately, never failed to get closer to the coast. the wood While in the positions just a little easier to reach residents of the island turned to the composition of forests literally inside out and floor make up the tree, introduced tree species from Australia and Africa, complemented by Asian and South American flora originally, here the practical visitor gasp. Not only from the unusual scenery, vegetation, but also in verticality revealed specific species composition with high endemic species.

  • Imposing and lush vegetation, many species of plants. This is a real forest, not just big shrubs like on the Canary Islands.  more »
