(1h to 4-5h, walks in nature along the island traditional water channels)

Different guides available for this activity, with expertise on different levadas. For nature lovers, walking alongside a levada is a unique experience. Levadas (from the Portuguese verb “levar” – to carry) are a system of water channels covering most of the island, of many kilometres in length. The channels mostly border mountains but also go through it to bring water from different sources to the lower areas in Madeira for human and agricultural consumption, etc. The levadas also cross the Laurissilva Forest, UNESCO patrimony, which contain a unique suite of plants and animals, including many endemic species. They are paths for discovery and contact with nature and the agricultural landscape and an “ex libris” of the region.
