This is a walk unlike any other. Many of our guest tell us it is the walk they have enjoyed the most in Madeira.
Deep in the valley of the western plateau, you will marvel at the rock pools, that over millions of years have been carved out by the waters as they rush towards the sea, forming magnificent waterfalls and cascades.
In summer, bring your costume and enjoy a cool, crisp swim in these crystal clear and invigorating mountain waters.
You will experience a diversity of walking terrain, from the flatness of the Levadas to the gradients of the mountains tracks, as we make our way up the valley.
From forest trekking, along unmarked roots, to scrambling up to the oldest Levadas in the west of the island. An unforgettable experience.
Adult (+12yo)- €37
Child (5yo – 11yo) – €23
