Madeira Walks - Rabaçal and the 25 Fountains

Rabaçal is a nature reserve on the island of Madeira that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. It is an area of intense natural beauty, brimming with waterfalls and unique flora and plant life, all of which you can experience on this wonderful guided walk. The 25 Fountains Walk starts by heading down the biggest valley of Madeira towards the Rabaçal reserve. Along the way you will walk along two of the oldest Madeira levadas each boasting a remarkable evergreen landscape with beautiful waterfalls scattered throughout.

Once you arrive here you may never want to leave! In this paradise-like oasis you'll be immersed in beautiful surronds, listening to the murmuring sounds of the water and the quiet chanting of the birds. For nature lovers this walk is an invitation into a unique and awe-inspiring slice of heaven.

My friend and I completed the walk with Amilcar, he was very competent, calming and understanding of each member of the tours fitness abilities. He was funny and caring, especially to a woman who had a lung condition within the group, taking the time to ensure she was okay on steep inclines. He drove the taxi in a safe manner ( and trust me when you see the high roads of Maderia you want to feel confident about the person behind the wheel). The walk is beautiful and worth completing. Its a busy route, however we all share this planet so be patient! If you want empty mountain's to hike best come to Ireland :) Overall, you will feel comfortable with this company - they are time efficient and our tour guide, Amilcar, was extremely good at his job! Thanks again, we will be back!!!! Hannah and Maire

Nice 11km walk next to the Levadas. Not too much training needed as it was mostly going down or flat. Last part through a tunnel. Not advisable for people with extreme fear of heights or claustrophobia. All our group (18 people) enjoyed a lot. One person from another group had to return because of fear of heights - this was taken care of very professionally with an alternate route and I think the person enjoyed also in the end.

Kia was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. It was a very interesting tour which we would highly recommend to other travellers to Funchal.

Very nice. Nice young ladies, very friendly, received us wonderfully. Answered all questions in detail. As I said, everything is fine.

Great tour to do early in your trip to get familiar with your surroundings in Funchal
