Full description
Take part in this fascinating full-day journey, through rich agricultural land and crops from the city of Machico, complemented with superb views over São Lourenço Península, Porto Santo Island and the northeastern coast. In the past, this was the only way to travel from Machico or Caniçal to the village of Porto da Cruz, located in the Northeast. Starting from a lower altitude, you will walk up through the more challenging section of this beautiful path, where you will traverse a section of a cliff and mountain that takes you all the way to the northern part of the island.    Your walk lasts from around 9 AM to 5 PM. The 12-kilometer path takes approximately 4 hours and 30 minutes to complete. Come and explore this beautiful walking tour!

Unser Guide "Rubi", eine junge Frau mit gutem Englisch aus Funchal, traf uns pünktlich am CR7-Hotel. Wir holten eine weitere Kundin in Funchal ab und fuhren mit einem recht alten (bedenkliche? Schleifgeräusche) aber sauberen Kleinbus zu einem Stopp in einem kleinen Café in Machico. Hier gab es leckere Pasteis de Nata, das "Nationalgebäck". Danach eine leichte Wanderung entlang der Bewässungskanäle. Mittagsstopp auf dem höchsten Punkt mit schöner Aussicht. Weiter entlang mehr oder weniger breiten Wegen an der Steilküste mit atemberaubenden Ausblicken zum Endpunkt. Danach kurze Fahrt nach Porto da Cruz mit Freizeit, anschließend Rückkehr nach Funchal. Interessante und fachkundige Erklärungen (teilweise mit Googleübersetzer, wenn "unser Englisch nicht kompatibel" war.) der Geschichte Madeiras und der Pflanzen am Wegesrand. Grundkenntnisse in Englisch reichen aus, um die Tour zu genießen. Wanderung ist einfach mit kleinen (mittelschweren) steilen Passagen.
