Easy hike,suitable for everyone. Just follow the water. Some nice lookouts when the suncame out. We built a small raft out of wood and let it float.

Not for people suffering from vertigo, as you walk high on a levada trail along the edge of the woods. Stunning views and lots of photo opportunities. Easy, flat walk.

Great walk. Well sign posted and an easy stroll which most people can manage. Urban bus number 103 from FUNCHAL Runs 07.30 in the morning returning at 16.45. Well worth the visit.

A nice easy walk suitable for the less experienced walker. Mostly level, but there are some steep drops. West weather gear useful due to waterfall.

A nice levada walk. Allow about 3 hours for the return trip plus any time you would like for lunch at the mid point.
