About
Along the way, the views of the coast are magnificent. The blue sea contrasts with the agricultural fields you will have the opportunity to find. The unique shapes of traditional farmland along the way make us wonder how all that agricultural work is done.

Walking through the Madeira terraces
Any easy 5k on the north levada, with lots of local terraces. Essentially a crash course in the local farming economy, and the grand parent truck farming. The guide Susana was a font of information and made sure that the whole group was included. Any easy half day introduction to the Madeira country side. Remember to take 50c for the toilets.

Lovely walk - not too challenging at all. Wonderful views and gave us an insight into life on the precipitous slopes of Madeira. Alvaro was a most entertaining and knowledgeable guide. Very enjoyable, thank you!

A good initial walk on the island.
Mar 2020
My wife and I did this walk as our first walk in Madeira. A good walk, led by Alvaro, that gave use a general overview of the levadas, the island and the flora and fauna.
Short areas next to slopes, if you want to find out if you are affected by vertigo and a short tunnel. You are given a torch. We would use this company on our return visit.

Great levada walk with the funniest guide ever Alvaro
Feb 2020
This was my first levada walk and we did half day with my mom. It was a fantastic acitivity! Alvaro is the most funny and entertaining guide at Madeira! His knowledge about the vegetation and the life of local people is impressive and he is the type of guy that you really want to listen to! The walk itself was really easy and the views were amazing! We did enjoy the trip and recommend it to everyone who wants to discover Madeira!

Wonderful day out
We had never done a levada trip so we went for a half day as a starter. What a fantastic trip! Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, highly amusing and great company. We learned so much in a short time and the whole trip was something we will remember for a long time as well as giving us an appetite for more! We would not hesitate to recommend this company and when we do our next levada, they will be at the top of the list! Thank you for a great outing.
