All about the Levada do Rei Walk.

Great walk in the valley of “50 SHADES OF GREEN”. On the first stretch, you’ll notice the heady scent of the tall eucalyptus. Then you’ll marvel at the relict species of the dense Laurisilva forest, responsible for producing the water carried by the Levada along which we will walk. You’ll pass a few waterfalls, and you’ll even walk under one, which will add some thrill to this experience. When you reach the source of the Levada, you’ll meet with beauty and wonder. On RIBEIRO BONITO “Pretty Stream”, you’ll feel that fairy tales exist… And guess what!? This is where you’ll be able to relax and have a picnic. After this, we’ll go back through the same path. You’ll experience a delightful flat walk with awesome views over the valleys, easy even for non-experienced hikers since it involves no climbing or complicated steps.  This Levada will also give you lots of photo opportunities.

  7. What do you need to bring? Don't forget

    Non-slip walking boots and the more waterproof, the better; a camera, a coat, or a jumper if it gets cooler.

    We provide torches (free), but if you prefer, you can bring your torch or head torch. Some guests say it is unnecessary to use it, as the tunnel is short.

    Take a bag to carry your litter away with you.

    We remind you to bring your picnic and enough water as nothing is available on the route.

    Also, bring in a waterproof jacket. You will get wet from water falling from above one waterfall.


    Parents must bring a hiking child carrier backpack to carry their children under 4.

  8. Good to Know Activity level

    This walk is unsuitable for people with vertigo problems; Some parts of the path are quite narrow, with a steep drop on one side, but most have a barrier running alongside. There are only a few steps to overcome at the start/ end of the walk and a short tunnel. There are bathrooms at the start/end of the trail.


    Not recommended for children under 8.

  9. Security Don't take risks

    Better to go with a guide and relax, instead of getting lost in the mountains of Madeira. Knowing that the mountain guide activates the emergency system is reassuring if you fall or feel unwell. He/she sends a warning and the group’s location to the local authorities, enabling a quick rescue. All well worth the money for the hike.
