This walk gives an on-site into the subsistence farming on this steep rocky land. Every flat piece is land is planted and farmed by hand. The levada is obviously essential to provide water to these inaccessible farms Nice flat walk but has many tour parties...More

We started at the end of the Levada just above Porto da Cruz and walked past several gardens/farmed areas prior to getting the wilder parts of the levada. In hindsight I probably would not bother with this first part and start from just off the...More

I have my favourite places on the islands, most of them levadas, and this is one of those I keep returning to. The bus from Funchal to Cruz leaves 10:00 and takes about an hour and a half, there are several options available to return...More

Sometimes it's important to take the time to look back and see where you've been. We combined this walk with a forest walk that starts in Sao Roque do Faial. The forest walk opened in 2011 is quite steep in places and not recommended for...More
