Levada Rabaçal and 25 Fountains Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 40.49

    What to Expect
    The Levada Rabaçal begins in Paul da Serra, more precisely in Rabaçal. From this point we can observe one of the most beautiful valleys of Madeira, the Rabaçal Valley and down to the Forest House of Rabaçal. We walk in full Laurissilva Forest, a World Heritage site by UNESCO since 1999. After a few meters of pure beauty we make our first visit to the stunning waterfall of Risco.

    All around you can be dazzled by the green beauty of the forest and the sound of nature, the natural heart of  Madeira Island

    We can enjoy a variety of plant species. Among many species of birds, hopefully we can find the Trocaz Pigeon (columba trocaz trocaz) a unique species of Madeira. In the end we find the 25 Fontes and its beautiful green and fresh lagoon, surrounded by vines and giant ferns.

    After appreciate its natural and breathtaking scenery, we go round the same track back.

    Stunning walk along the levada and treated to views of the Risco and 25 Fontes waterfalls. The walk back via the 800m tunnel was a great way to end the hike. Would recommend.

    This was a great experience with a very experienced and friendly guide. The views are stunning and the level of fitness needed is not bad- though there are a couple of quite steep steps too negotiate. This trail was very busy when I did it-...More

    Providing your trainers are waterproof you will be fine. It can be quite wet underfoot and muddy, I wore trainers but they did get very wet.
