Overview

If you are looking to discover the North and South of Madeira Island while walking, this is the best recommendation for you.

Visiting the famous natural pools of Porto Moniz, crossing the old paths and tunnels of the North Coast, and stopping for a typical lunch, will turn this day into an eternal memory.

The walk takes us to the interior of the Ribeira da Janela valley, coming back to the south while passing through Paul da Serra at 1500 meters above sea level.

On the south we visit Calheta and Ponta de Sol and a magnificent waterfall that falls directly on the road, stopping to taste the famous and typical Poncha (rum, lemon, orange, and honey), and completing the tour at Cabo Girão Skywalk, with a magnificent view over the Atlantic Ocean and the cities to the south while suspended on a glass platform at 580 meters of altitude.

We leave towards the West of the Island already starting to use the paths that have been cut through the mountains from Campanário. there we will be able to observe the work done by our ancestors in the execution of one of the world heritage sites nominated by UNESCO, I am talking about the famous terraces of Madeira Island. This type of ancestral construction is nothing more than the construction of stone walls of volcanic origin to add to the cultivation area on the slopes of the island. After observing these constructions we will make a brief stop at the São Sebastião belvedere situated 170 metres above sea level and where there is an ideal point to observe the only valley in Madeira Island that cuts through it from north to south.

Loved the levada walk, its really amazing the creation of levadas and tunnels in Madeira. In the begging of the day was cloudy, in the afternoon we visited Ponta do Pargo from the mountains to the lighthouse. We really recommend it.
