We start in Funchal and drive to the best hiking trail in the island, located in Madeira' center Mountain Massif. It's around 17 km long hike full of treasures, inside of Laurissilva Forest where you can enjoy the life ecosystem heart beating. We'll pass three Levadas, two tunnels of 10-15 min, a winter' lake and several waterfalls. If you are looking for a challenge - this is for you.

A Recent Review of this tour

So we arrived a little shaky after warnings of late or cancelled flights due to thunder storms but Carlos contacted me to ask if we were all ok. He said a few walks may need to be amended due to landslides but I felt totally confident in him due to previous conversations and his knowledge. I have done many tours with this group and this one I believe was the best. From the moment they met him they loved him and found him respectful, funny an kind. The tour was so beautiful and breathtaking. plus very safe
