Overview

The Levada walks are trails that follow the open canal system that criss-cross the mountains dating back to the 16th century. Developed to distribute water from the wet regions of the north to the sunnier and drier regions of the south, they consequently make easy, yet no less impressive, walks through the verdant countryside of Madeira.

We travel to the Valley of Rabaçal, a spell-binding place that is one of the most popular walks in the region. Walk through sparkling emerald green valleys descending from the plateau of Paúl da Serra, passing the guesthouse of Rabaçal, continuing along to the enchanting waterfalls. Admire the 100m high Risco waterfall on our way down to the 25 fountains of Levada, after which we reach a small lake located at the bottom of a cliff which towers high above. Feel the cool mist against your face as you watch the 25 natural springs cascading into the lake before returning to the vehicles through a tunnel used to carry water to the south of the island.
