Overview

This wonderful walk begins about 200 meters above Rabaçal´s shelter.

Along the path, the Erica arborea and the whortleberry species are predominant. However, as it is a transitional area between the heath and the Laurel Forest, classified as Natural World Heritage by UNESCO since December 1999, you may find other species such as the laurel, the holly, the lily-of-the-valley tree, the pau-branco and the Heberdenia.

The Lagoa do Vento is a river basin formed by the water which fall from the top of the cliff, coming from the Ribeira do Lajeado and moving towards the waterfall (or cascade) of Risco.

Enjoy this magical and inspiring place, where the silence is only interrupted by the sound of the water, to recharge your energy to return.

What To Expect

Lagoa do Vento
Deep in the valley of western plateau, you will marvel at the rock pools, that over millions of years have been carved out by the waters as they rush towards the sea, forming wonderful waterfalls and cascades.

You will experience a diversity of walking terrain from the flatness of the levadas to the gradients of the mountains tracks, as we make our way up the valley. From forest trekking, along unmarked roots, to scrambling up to the oldest levada in the west of the island.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Levada do Alecrim
This is a unique trek where, in the depths of the valley of the Paúl da Serra plateau, where you can admire lagoons and rock formations that have been excavated over the thousands of years of water passing through the sea, forming waterfalls and magnificent cascades. As we explore the valley, we pass through a wide range of terrain, from the levadas plain to the shifting mountains, along paths almost obliterated by the forest until we reach the oldest levada on the west side of the island.

Fantastic experience

We've done so many tours and walks with Happy Tours during our multiple trips to Maderia. The service from Marco and the team is top notch, even when we have had to cancel through unexpected circumstances.
Wonderful guided hike

We really enjoyed this tour. We had to cancel our rental car at the last minute. Happy Tours was able to get us booked the night before. We are very thankful that they were able to save our vacation!

Our guide was Emilke and was superb! We learned so much about the geology, plant and animal life during our tour.

The scenery was beautiful, the pacing was good, but we would definitely classify the hike as difficult rather than moderate.
Tolle Tour mit spektakulärer Natur

Die Tour fing leider mit einer 30 Minuten verspäteten Abholung an, sodaß in der ersten Hälfte der Wanderung viel zu schnell gegangen wurde. Aber die Aussicht und die wunderbare Natur mit den hohen Heidebäumen entschädigt einen sofort. Die Tour hat viele Treppen, fast alle bergab.
