Madeira offers a great variety of walks, which we have organised into the shorter Half Day (HD) walks with up to 2h30 walk and the longer Full Day (FD) walks with upto 4h30 walking. All are recomended walks (PR) as identified by the Tourism Board.
Madeira "levada" walks are the walks which run along the "levadas", waterchannels first developed to bring water (mostly from the north of Madeira) to the plantations (mostly on the south of Madeira) and now also offer great walks through Madeira´s nature, heritage and local communities.
The mountain walks are known as "veredas", many were paths used to cross Madeira island before the road netwrok was developed.
The "Caminho Real" were roads built when the king visited the island. There is an ongoing project to recover these routes and paths and we hope to publish these soon.
