Madeira Nature Lovers Hiking

Known for its rugged terrain and lush vegetation, Madeira is also home to over 1, 350 miles of levadas, irrigation channels that bring water from the mountain tops down to the drier parts of the island. Some levadas date back as far as the 16th century. This 5-day itinerary allows you to explore Madeira's natural areas with guided hikes that utilize the network of walking paths that follow alongside the levadas.
