A really good walk. It doesn't require a very good fitness level. The landscapes are amazing, the guide was excellent, offering us a lot of interesting info. The tunnel experience was amazing. I would strongly recommend this tour.

Excellent
Heather_G

Our tour guide was excellent - she was knowledgeable and engaging. We learned lots about where we were walking and also something of life in Madeira too. The scenery was spectacular and our 7 and 9 year old found it totally do-able. The tunnel at the end was longer than we expected and a bit more daunting - but a fun experience too.

Great and interesting walk

The walk was about 12kms mainly in the shade of the trees. Very knowledgable guide who knew the area very well. A few steps up and down but not too difficult for anyone of reasonable fitness. Parts got quite busy but our group was 13. Well worth doing if you want to see how the levada system works.

Most popular hike in Madeira
Minda_H

Our guide Samuel was very patient and kind, friendly to the group and all who he encountered on the trail. He tried hard to educate us on the names of trees and flowers even though I can’t remember much. However, note that through the entire hike > 4 hours there was no opportunity for toilet break. The trail was extremely popular so very little chance for a nature based solution away from people. The eleven km hike was made easy by the tunnel route so no need to climb back where we started. Wildflowers were just rampant everywhere, nice.

Levada fun
Lindsay_C
, Mar 2022
Our first time walking the Levada and this was an excellent route. Cafe stop the beginning of the walk gives you the opportunity for a last toilet stop and you can easily buy your packed lunch here. We started in the rain but finished in sunshine. Great guide-Samuel, who gave us lots of interesting information about the flora and fauna and history of the Levadas. This a long walk, 12km /4.5 hours with lots of steps and narrow pathways, but really enjoyable - exciting dark 800m tunnel at the end !

Great walk!
Dan_M
, Feb 2022
We had a great guide who shared lots of knowledge about the area and plants. Walk was very pretty and great way to start hiking on the island. Wasn't strenous at all. The pickup was on time and a great driver. However, you really don't need a guide to do this walk, the walk is well sign posted and paths are well made. It's a shame they don't offer a drop off and pickup service or public bus from Funchal as thats all you needed really. Our friends also booked seperatly on this booking page but ended up on a seperate tour, so make sure you note within the additonal booking if you want to be on the same one.

A very varied and interesting walk. About 11km. Not for those who don’t like walking or are not fit enough to be able to climb and descend uneven steps. The guide was excellent. Knowledgeable, friendly and organised.

beautiful walk along the levadas
Jacqueline_S
, Aug 2021
It was a beautiful walk along the levadas. Our guide gave us from time to time information about the flowers and levadas along our way. We would recommand this tour. It has to be said that the tour is mostly going downhill or straight. Just once we had to climb some stairs but this was no problem at all.

Pleasant walk in the woods
Ksenia_Alekseeva

Very interesting and pleasant walk in the woods of Madeira with a qualified guide Nanu. We have seen several waterfalls, although it was quite misty on that day (it was in July). The guide arrived to puck us up from the hotel on time and answered all our questions. Can recommend this tour to people prepared for tracking.

A Madeira classic
Jennifer C
, Mar 2019
If you are reasonably fit and enjoy being in nature, do not miss this unique Madeirian experience. We had a terrific guide (Nuno) who not only showed us the way but also taught us a lot about the unique Laurasilva forest and the mechanics of the amazing Levadas. There was a lot of up and down on this walk but it was well worth it.

Wonderful Levadas walk
Clare_G
, Mar 2019
From pick up to return, this trip was informative and filled with amazing scenery. Our guide, Jenny, provided us with a brilliant over view of the history of Madeira and biodiversity of the island. The walk itself, was fairly easy, a few ups and downs, with breathtaking scenery. We walked along several levadas, saw waterfalls and beautiful birds. Take this trip with the wonderful Jenny, it’s not to be missed. Approx walk 4 hours of sheer bliss

This was a great hike. Our guide, Jessie, did a great job showing us interesting plants and trees throughout the walk as well as keeping us on track. It was crowded, but it apparently always is, but well worth it!
