Most beautiful walk by Levada De Tornos

We went to Levada Dos Tornos which started from Camacha. We walked 15km along the levada, with the most amazing scenery, local flowers, trees and wildlife (I saved a rabbit out of the Leveda and we saw a Buzzard twice), as well as breath taking views. Richard was a knowledgeable guide and spoke about Madeira history that I was not aware of - a learning experience as well as an refreshing walk.

My hubby and me are hardened walkers. We have walked miles and Richard let us set the pace, which was excellent as I'm not good at walking slowly. However, he did draw our attention to important aspects of the Levada, as well as spectacular views.

Richard was a fun guide as well and I felt like I was meeting up with an old friend for a walk.

The most amazing aspect of this walk was we did not see one other person during the whole 15km. I have done other walks in Madeira, along more popular Levedas, and in the mountains, and they were always too busy. I liked the solitary feel of this walk and it was so peaceful and beautiful.

It is to be noted that part of this walk is not for the faint hearted. There are parts of the Leveda that have VERY steep sides, with no hand rails. You just have to keep walking with your eyes on the ground. If you suffer from vertigo, this walk isn't for you. We also had to walk through some rough vegetation when the path was blocked by a fallen tree. The weather was not pleasant to start with as it was pouring and windy (however Funchal was baked in bright sunshine) so remember to take a water proof with you. It did brighten up, which was perfect for the end of the walk.

The driver also showed us some beautiful places on the way back to Funchal and gave his own personal history of Madeira.

The only negative I can mention is that they didn't have any other free spots during our week to do another private tour, as we would really liked to have done another walk. Lesson learnt and I will book before traveling next time.

Richard was very popular!! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Um pequeno paraiso escondido

Nem fazia a mínima ideia, que a Levada dos Tornos, na zona da Boaventura era tão bonita.
O caminho começa na área de Lombo do Urzal (Boaventura), perto de um grupo de casas, temos que subir um pouco até encontrar a levada. Vire à direita e siga a levada que o levará à origem da Levada dos Tornos, onde você encontrará uma bela queda de agua. Fique um momento neste local antes de retornar pela mesma rota, mas desta vez em direção à Fajã do Penedo.
Para seu lado esquerdo tambem tem muito verde, sempre plano, com uma enorme queda de agua e um peque na barragem, no topo dessa barragem, tem uma bela queda de agua,o longo do caminho, desfrute da natureza e de todo o ambiente, composto pelo verde vivo da vegetação exuberante.
