If you prefer an easy and beautiful walk, then this levada is the one for you. Nice scenery and not challenging at all. At a normal pace, it will take you about 3 hrs and 30mins. Careful: it can get quite muddy if it rained...More

I have visited 4 Levadas (Caldeiaro Verde, 25 Fontes and Cascada do Risco) and this one was the best for me. It takes 2-3 hours and we haven't meet many tourist during this trip which we really enjoy. I highly recommend it.

Beautiful peaceful walk with great views. The terrain is easy but could become wet underfoot in bad weather. We joined a guided walk but could easily have followed the path on our own. The guide provided information on flora and fauna but this wasn’t essential....More

this is a beautiful levada walk, with lovely views, a short tunnel and small waterfall over the path. There are some steep drops but there are barriers where needed. A great introduction to levada walking. We saw some beautiful firecrest birds very close to the...More

Follows a levada, so flat. Varies between wide walk paths and narrow paths, but almost all stretches along steep hills are fenced. Be aware though that you have to pass through a low (but five meter short) tunnel and inside(!) a (small) waterfall. So you...More

Beautiful stroll in Madiera's rain forest, prettier than a picture, easy walk but has some exposure to steep drops and can be wet underfoot and overhead as you walk under a small waterfall.

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

This was our first Levada walk, so we chose what looked like an easy one, and it was no problem at all. Although the official guide says a torch is essential, it was not needed on a bright sunny day. A little muddy under foot...More
