What do you need to bring?
Non-slip walking boots or sports footwear, a camera, and a coat or a jumper if it gets cooler.
We also suggest taking a hat and sunscreen as most Levada is exposed to the sun. As nothing is available on the route, take a bag to carry your litter away.
A raincoat or poncho if rain is in the forecast.
Parents must bring a hiking child carrier backpack to carry their children under 4.
Good to Know
The walk is easy, and the trail is flat and wide. We do the walk reasonably, including stopping to take photos. There are bathrooms at the coffee bar in the middle or the end of the trail.
Appropriate for children accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
Don't take risks
Better to go with a guide and relax, instead of getting lost in the mountains of Madeira. If you fall or feel unwell, knowing that the mountain guide activates the emergency system is reassuring. 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.
We pick you up from where you are staying and drop you off when finished. It is an easy and comfortable way to get to the walk. There are comfort breaks before and after the walk. It’s easy to book. Our staff are qualified. We take you to various sites we know you will want to explore. Our fundamental principles are the comfort, safety, and flexibility of our guests and personnel.
