I went to Madeira on holiday, went to Quiemada for the levada walk and ended up at about 10000 BC. Joking apart. The levada, forest and natural park are truly stunning. So much so it felt like being back in time.

I believe the area is also Unesco and is easy to see why. Elevated views over the coast and a natural area that is easy to access abd would suit all abilities.

Th levada walk to the waterfall shoukd taje about 4 hours and 30. A head for heights is useful at some points due to elevation.

Liked the view very much, even there was foggy but the nature still is very beautiful to see. Old trees, unseen flowers, waterfalls. We haven’t taken the guide, there is easy to navigate by yourself. If the day is clear, it is much more recommended than it’s foggy!

Initially, I was not very keen when we arrived because I had seen many such forests in India. But once we started... The view, the water falls, the birds, the streams and the vegetation is beyond imagination. We decided to walk all the 11 kms trough the forest and the experience was worth a life time.

I would go back here any day. again ... and again...

We walked 17km of Levadas in Queimadas Forest Park and all in all it was a fantastic expericence. The typical Madeira style house was worth to take a look. It would have been nice to have sort of cafe in the spot.

very small trails going up the mountains through a misty rain forest. Our target is a waterfall and after some hours with our very knowledgeable guide we got there. There are quite a lot of people hiking there and passing someone is difficult - mountain walls on one side, a path of 50 cm and the ravine on the other side, but it's worth it.

this is a unique and stunning landscape to walk through. We walked through it on our Levada walk and drove through it on our jeep safari, so saw it in rain, cloud and sunshine. Each type of weather brought out new variations on its beauty. Well worth a visit and I'm glad its protected as a UNESCO heritage site.

We walked the levada through this area. It clearly gets busy at popular times so get there early. Scenery and views are lovely

We came too late in the day and weather was really rainy so the path was basically flooded. Still, the 30 or so minutes we walked in were brilliant and had we had more time, we would have walked the rest for sure!

Well worth a visit. When we went it was quiet with few tourists. Nice walking on good paths. Several walk options you can do if you have a car, easy to find your way so no need for a guide.
