    What to Expect
    Beginning in the area of Refertas, Porto da Cruz, this trail leads hikers through a journey filled with several species of endemic flora and fauna, as well as beautiful landscapes that show some of the beauty and tradition of this island.

    In the first part of the journey you can admire the imposing Rock of Penha dÁguia and the picturesque buildings that constitute the nearby villages. You can also enjoy the small plots and agricultural crops, carefully crafted by area residents.

    As you move forward begins to emerge the magnificent and abundant vegetation characteristic of this zone, as the Holly (Ilex canariensis), the Barbusano (Appolonias barbujana), the Laurel (Laurus azorica) among many others.

    At the end of this walk you will find a beautiful place with small lakes that are formed by the pure and crystalline water brought in by the river. Enjoy all the surroundings and take time to relax for a while. After resetting the energies, it is time to return, following the reverse path.

    This half-day levada walk is at a fairly low elevation (between 200m and 300m above sea level) and is in the farming region of northeast Madeira. It is a very interesting walk because you can see both the farms, mostly just below the levada and also the north shore of the

    Our guide, Rosa made this hike very interesting; her stories of her childhood and descriptions of how the local plants are used medicinally were fascinating. There were some lovely views and we came home with a greater understanding of the levada system. We barely noticed that
