Madeira Levada Walk - Caldeirao Verde

    What to Expect
    This walk begins at the Queimadas Forest Park at 980 meters above sea level, in the municipality of Santana, next to a shelter house with thatched roof, seems taken from a fairy tale. It is in the Laurissilva Forest, where you can enjoy a wide variety of plant species, some to highlight are the Stinklaurel (Ocotea foetens), the Laurel (Laurus novocanariensis), the Lily-of-the-Valley Tree (Clethra arborea), Common European Elder (Sambucus lanceolata), between others.

    The most visible bird species are the Chaffinch, the Firecrest, the Grey Wagtail, the Buzzard and with luck the Long-toed Wood Pigeon. As we walk along the Levada we find ourselves in a green and pleasant landscape. After passing by 4 natural tunnels, existing along the way, we find the beautiful Caldeirão Verde, a waterfall whose water falls in a beautiful lagoon of emerald green color. After appreciating this natural landscape, we go round the same track back to Queimadas Forest Park.

    Brilliant but quite tough. About 9miles. Jenny our guide was excellent. Gave us plenty of information, kept the group moving at a steady pace and kept us safe. Will definitely do another walk when I come again.

    We were picked up on time from our hotel and taken to the Levada by a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. The walk is not for the faint hearted, as it can be a bit of a suprise when you first look down and realise how high you are and how close you get to the edge at times.

    We booked with MB Travel at our hotel near the Lido. All straightforward and were picked up from our hotel on time. We then had to drive 1 hour to the very east of the island to pick up our guide and then further to pick up 2 more passengers. So 10 walkers in all. In all it
