Full description
Madeira offers untold beauty, friendly locals, and incredible "Levada" or irrigation channels that lead directly to the Atlantic Ocean. Today, you will explore these levadas with your guide. Starting from Queimadas Forestall Park, you will wander through lush vegetation and charming stone pathways deep into the forest. Along the way, you will pass by incredible views of Santana and São Jorge, and even have a chance to snap some pictures of the Verde lagoon and waterfall. Your 4.5-hour walk takes you through a diverse landscape of flora and fauna, and your guide will help you make sense of the varieties of life around here. Your trip will be well guided, and we even have torches and walking sticks to make your trek more pleasant. Once we reach the Caldeirão Verde waterfall, we will have a 30 minute picnic in this idyllic landscape before returning back to the starting point.

The walk is memorable.. the scenery changes at every corner and is always breath taking. Even if the path is entirely flat it is narrow half of the way with dramatic falls and slippery ground…i have a fear of hight and i did it anyway.. it is something not to miss…

Phenomenal

We had an amazing weather, and our tour guide was helpful and very informative. Even though we felt quite tired after the walk, we were able to see amazing views and waterfall in the end. Very worth trip and we were well takwn care by the agent. Loved every minute of it. Highly recommend to everyone.

Fantastic experience and professional guide

We booked this Tour online within one of the many wonderful Levada that the island offers. I have read many reviews that advise against these guided tours because they promise a lot but then concretely you can't do much. This agency, on the other hand, does what it promises. The guide was very kind and professional, very nice, he explained everything to us in detail, the tour was pleasant and we saw a lot and learned a lot. It takes you up to the waterfall and if the weather permits you have enough time for a quick swim inside. With this agency we also booked another tour (West Tour) where we visited 9 places in one day, in each place we had 20 minutes (enough to see the place and take several photos), in Porto Moniz we stopped 2 hours and we could take a bath. Also in this case the guide showed us more things than expected stopping to take pictures and see things out of the program. All gorgeous! Recommended
