Walked this levada with an 8 and 12 year old, it's fairly level so not overly exhausting. You get to the first tunnel after about 75min walk, it's a fairly long one so torches are a must. Straight after is a waterfall one has to walk through, despite a kind of roof waterproof gear absolutely recommended. The walk overall is... More

However there are 2 parts where the walkway is only about 12inches wide with a shear drop down and no... More

My first Levada in the island. I did by myself and it was pretty amazing and it is not hard as some others. A good app to download is Walkme, it has all infos that you need to do any Levada in the Island (maps, pics, buses scheduled, etc). Follow me on IG: @dddferraz

we did this little walk and found it very pleasant. You will need strong shoes for this walk, so no flip flops

This is our favourite walk in Madeira. It's easy and flat (tho it does get a little precipitous in places) - worth the effort because of the absolutely stunning views. We do this particular walk whenever we come to Madeira.

This walk is so beautiful, it's impossible to describe it. The views through the trees are amazing, with completely unspoilt forested mountains everywhere. The walk starts going uphill climbing many steps and cross winding roads, but there is shade nearby to rest in. The walk seems to join onto another much flatter walk although there was quite some confusion as... More
