Really easy signposted route but was quite muddy underfoot. The low score is due to the constant cloud covering hence no view really and there was no cafe in sight. There were plenty of walkers along the 18km round trip we did and not 1...More

This is a main attraction for any hiker going to Madeira. It would be a 5-star place for me but there are many parts where trees have fallen over and made the path dangerous or impassable. There are huge crowds in both directions and people...More

Day tour started at Pico da Pedras due to work at Quiemadas - this adds about another 4.5km to the 13km route. Bad winter and storms have left large parts waterlogged and slippery underfoot - need to take things slowly around stairs on the only...More

We had a great walk to the inferno and back... grabbing a few Geocache on the way. All bar one part of the trip was pretty level altitude...as you get closer to Inferno there is a set of steps which will take the wind out...More

At the time of our visit late April 2018 the usual road up to Queimadas was closed and a diversion was in place as the car park is being re-developed. We had to park in a lay by further down the road which added about...More

Fairly flat hiking but some rocks and roots to pass. Some narrow passages and some tunnels. Bring a flashlight.

A very nice hike, would definitely do it again. Nothing much at the end of the hike and you have to walk the exact same way back. But a really cool thing to do for an active day.

Wear good footwear as some sections can be slippery. Poles are useful. You will also need a headlamp or torch to go through tunnels. Bring snacks and water too. There is a lot of variation and some waterfalls on this luscious walk.

Just take a taxi to the start of the walk (and ask the driver to come and fetch you 5 hours later). Take a picnic. There is no way you can get lost on the path. You can organise it by yourselves. We didn't meet or get in... More

Bus runs to Santana and then you would need taxi as you wouldn't want to waste time walking on the road when the levada is long in itself. You would also need taxi back to Santana and bus. A hired car is best option.
