Madeira Levada Walks

From all around the globe avid trekkers, walkers, hikers, ramblers and wanderers converge on the sub tropical island of Madeira for a very distinct reason...

They have discovered that Madeira island can be explored and experienced from within the very heart of the island itself and often with little effort by taking advantage of the world renowned Madeira Levada walks.

The Levadas which are almost unique to Madeira, were started in the 15th century as a way of bringing water from the mountains to irrigate the fertile soil in the south of the island.
The irrigation channels run through valleys and tunnels, along cliff edges and mountain sides in gentle gradients which make them not only perfect for walking in Madeira but also gives the walker a remarkable variety of scenery.
