Levada do Rabacal 25 Fountains Walk and Jeep Tour
From US$51.86
Overview
Hike the 25 Fountains (Fontes) Levada trail from Rabaçal, and walk through a landscape of waterfalls, pools, and trees set high in the Madeira mountains. After a morning of hiking, take a trip to Ribeira Brava, Cabo Girao, and Camara de Lobos, traveling in an open-top Jeep for the best possible views of Madeira's back roads and rugged mountain scenery.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Funchal for the drive to Rabaçal, the starting point for the 25 Fountains Levada trail, which passes a long series of waterfalls and pools. Listen for the sound of native birds as you walk through stands of dense trees.
Following the hike, purchase a Madeiran lunch in a nearby restaurant and then go off-roading to Ribeira Brava, an historic community flanked by steep valleys. From there, drive to the summit of the 1,900-foot (580-meter) Cabo Girao, with a glass-floored balcony and spectacular views across Camara de Lobos and Funchal Bay. Make a final stop at the fishing village of Camara de Lobos, a great place to get a glimpse of traditional life, and finish the day with drop-off at your original departure point.

For me - the best attraction in Madeira!!!

The most striking levada in Madeira. The short walk from the cafe to the Risko waterfall is very nice and once you see the 120 meter waterfall is it stunning!

Very nice despite the weather

We did the tour with Ruben and were very happy about it. The weather was unfortunately foggy, but we managed to see the 25 fountains and taste the best Poncha along the way. Don’t underestimate the need of waterproof clothes and shoes.

do not worry. You walk down the paved road for 25 minutes, then you walk for 1 Km till you come to the waterfall and back 1 Km. On the way up there is a van that can take you up for 3 Euros.

This is certainly not an easy walk in terms of the terrain. Much of it is along the maintenance track beside the levada which is narrow and raised above ground level. The worst part is the uneven, rocky surface which... More
