An easy levada hike

Pick up directly from the hotel. The guide (speaking English and German) led us directly along a levada through nature and smaller towns, always had a careful eye on his group and gave a lot of valuable information about the fauna. Although the route is 12km, there was almost never any notable uphill or downhill and our guide walked at a reasonable pace, not too fast. We started at a supermarket, so that we could go to the toilet again and stock up on something to eat and/or drink. This option is no longer available on the road. At the end of the hike, stop at a cafe where you can get refreshments and go to the toilet. This levada hike is a good way to warm up physically, to “immigrate”, so to speak. Absolutely recommendable and therefore full marks. Thank you for this great and memorable tour.

A wonderful easy hike with beautiful views of the bays and the sea again and again. Our guide taught us a lot about the irrigation system, the flora, fruits and vegetables. In addition, he always showed consideration for the slower among us when it came to pacing. I can only recommend! A small drawback: the minibuses used in Madeira are only intended for small and narrow people. You really have very little space there.

Very good guide who introduced the small group to nature, the country and the people in German, English and French. A beautiful, varied, easy to walk route with wonderful motifs, which is why one would have wished for a little more time to take pictures. The 12 kilometers with a 20-minute break were hiked within just under 4 hours. Absolutely to recommend.

Great walk along levada, guide was good.

Only problem was late pick up by a taxi which took me to a different pick up place. The driver did apologies for lateness but did not explain I was being taken to a different place for the mini bus. So the beginning was confusing

Very nice hike along the levadas. No meters in altitude to overcome but slightly downhill stretches through nature
