Full description
After being collected from your Funchal accommodation, you will be taken to your tour starting point where you will warm up. From there your trail running experience will take you from the sea directly to the mountain, allowing you to run on a levada and inside Madeira's Laurissilva native forest.  You will eventually finish smoothly on a trail by the shore, constantly surrounded with the sounds of the ocean and the amazing views. The first 5 kilometers are the toughest, as you climb from sea level to 900 meters, but following this the rest of the way consists of easy running trails for you to relax until the trail's end. The final part of the tour is conducted on a beautiful trail by the shore with scenic ocean views. The total distance covered is 28 kilometers, with an approximate 1,000 meter elevation difference.
