Madeira is a paradise for the hikers thanks to Levadas. They are water canals built in the XVI century to bring the water from the north to the south of the island, where it rained less. These Levadas had parallel paths to facilitate the access to open and close the canals’ doors. Nowadays, there are more than 2500 km of Levadas in the island to go through, most of them going through amazing landscapes, valleys and waterfalls. One of the most famous Levadas route is the 25 fuentes (25 fontains), which goes from Rabaçal, crosses beautiful waterfalls; the Caldeirao verde route which also ends up in a waterfall and a lagoon and the Levada de Risco route. The experience won’t disappoint you.
