When we visited Madeira in July 2018, we decided to the Levada do Rei trail as our first levada walk. Even though we started our walk at ~13:00 and finished around 3 hours later, we only occasionally encountered other hikers - what a difference with...More

Not for people suffering from vertigo, as you walk high on a levada trail along the edge of the woods. Stunning views and lots of photo opportunities. Easy, flat walk.

Great walk. Well sign posted and an easy stroll which most people can manage. Urban bus number 103 from FUNCHAL Runs 07.30 in the morning returning at 16.45. Well worth the visit.

This is a very nice Levada Path, quite easy for non-experienced hikers since it does not involves any kind of climbing or difficult steps. It is also easily accesible by car or rather bus (to Sao Jorge). The landscape is beautiful, at the end of...More
