Levada do Rabacal 25 Fountains Walk and Jeep Tour
From US$53.85
Overview
Hike the 25 Fontes Levada trail from Rabaçal, and walk through a landscape of waterfalls, pools, and trees set high in the Madeira mountains. After a morning of hiking, the day includes a trip to Ribeira Brava, Cabo Girão, and Câmara de Lobos, traveling in an open-top Jeep for the best possible views of Madeira's back roads and rugged mountain scenery.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Funchal for the drive to Rabaçal, the starting point for the 25 Fontes Levada trail, which passes a long series of waterfalls and pools; listen for the sound of native birds as you walk through stands of dense trees.

Following the hike, purchase a Madeiran lunch in a nearby restaurant, then go off-roading to Ribeira Brava, a historic community flanked by steep valleys. From there, drive to the summit of the 1,900-foot (580-mt.) Cabo Girão, with a glass-floored balcony and spectacular views across Câmara de Lobos and Funchal Bay. Make a final stop at the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos, a great place to get a glimpse of traditional life, and finish the day with drop-off at your original departure point.

Amazing day out

We thank Philip for the great tour, it has been an amazing day. We had a nice walk to the waterfalls, with enough care about safety and nice places. And the jeep tour was a great experience, with a stop at Cabo Girao from where...More

Great trip, well organised and very informative

Philip and Rui, our guides and drivers, took time to explain everything as we went along, their knowledge of the area and plants etc was very good. The route (via a tunnel to start) and then the Levada walk to the 25 Fountains was lovely,...More

Terrible - AVOID

This trip was the biggest disappointment in Madeira. We were initially told the tour had max. 8 people, which was very important to us, as we didn’t want to go in a big group. What we weren’t told is that 8 people is the max...More

Poor organisation

If we'd been warned in advance to wrap up well and put on waterproof hiking boots we'd have had an amazing time and no doubt awarded the tour with a five-star review. Walking through the tunnel with no light (because the flashlights provided weren't properly...More
