Walking the Levadas

Madeira is a renowned destination for walking or hiking.

Its steep mountain slopes are irrigated by a network of small canals known as 'levadas'.

Legend has it, it took a couple of Brits back in the 70s to realise the potential these paths had as a superb trekking routes. These were due to the dramatic landscapes and winding paths past small villages with vineyards and terraced fields.
