Overview

The Furado levada, which begins in the Forestry Park of Ribeiro Frio, (870 m) is one of the oldest on Madeira Island and is rated moderate on the scale of difficulty. The 11-km walk takes us to the lookout point at Portela (600m), passing through tunnels dug in the rock, waterfalls and valleys, with some indigenous species of vegetation and birds that are characteristic of the Laurisilva forest.

Along the way, the landscape views alternate between the Ribeiro Frio Valley and the settlements of Porto da Cruz and Faial on the north side of the island. At the end of the levada, there is still time to enjoy the view over the Penha d´Águia rock formation.

Prices:
Adult (+10yo)- €32.50

Levada Walks

We did the Ribeira Frio / Portela walk through the Laurissilva Forest with Flora Travel which was outstanding. Our guide, Danilo, was extremely knowledgable and passionate about the forest, the mountains and basically the whole of Madeira. He was also very entertaining and funny. We had a lady in the group who only spoke French and he took the time to translate everything for her too.
