A great walk along the levada in the north west of the island. We went with Sara and Lido tours and had a fabulous day. Very informative. We would highly recommend this walk.

We walked this Lavada on 5/8/18 and to be fair to the authorities they had closed it but the barrier had been removed. The Lavada does have 2 footpath collapses after 1 & 2km approx. Both are passable with care but you will be exposed...More

Please beware that a part of the path is broken off. We started the path at the church this morning and found that after about 1km a 2.5-3m gap appears in the path. We did not deem it crossable and turned around. All that remains...More

The hike offers amazing views and a great variety. Unquestionnably the highlight is the waterfall which appears after one has crossed a 200m tunnel. Further on the path leads you below the waterfall

sometimes sunny, sometimes foggy, sometimes dense forrest, sometimes burned forrest, sometimes jungle, sometimes typical european forest, meadows, relics from ice age, few waterfalls and cascades.. many stairs along the way... a bit harder to get to the levada (into two houses near the village center)

We started this levarda walk on the levarda nova and joined this walk to make a circular walk. We parked at the church and walked up the hill to the start of the nova trail. The walk was beautiful with breath taking views and the...More

We started our walking from Achadas da Cruz as it is much easier to go down by levada then to climb up against its flow. There are no any tunnels so you don't need the flashlights but you need good boots as there are many...More
