Enjoy a beautiful and pleasant tour alongside Madeira’s North West Coast, deep in to the forest, through forgotten and enchanted old roads. Travel along narrow and forgotten stone plastered roads, off-road and soak up the scenery. Get a glimpse into the true lifeblood which drives us through life. Enjoy 15 minutes at a “levada”, our water aqueducts that start building at the 15th century and stills using today, learn about our native forest & flora and the natural reserve of UNESCO.
When the weather allows it, you can swim at the volcanic lava pools in Porto Moniz or at Seixal.
Starting in Serra D’Água, the abrupt valley dividing the massif from the only plateau this island has, this tour takes you to the lush northwest, where waterfalls melt into the ocean and lava has been shaped into cerulean pools. Feel the adrenalin-adventure of exploring primitive back-roads surrounded by native forest. Add to these a walk alongside the famous man-made channels -called Levadas-with ravishing landscapes and for sure, you will have unforgettable moments.
