Enchanting all year round, this tranquil Levada walk will expose its hidden beauty to the unsuspecting walker. Forest, valleys, panoramic views of the south-west coast and terraced fields are the many contrasts that the old Madeira reveals on this gentle Levada that is lined with a vast array of flora.
Due to the damages resulting from last month’s weather conditions, we are forced to change our Half Day Walk: Amazing Vistas (Thursday & Sunday). This walk will not be available before February 2014.
Until then, we are offering a new Half Day Walk in Prazeres: Serene Settings!

The Huffington Post asked the Minube crowd to hand pick some of the world’s most unforgettable adventures and came up with a list of must-experience places for every thrill-seeker, adrenaline-junkie out there.
Madeira is of course one of the featured destinations.
Traditionally famed for its hearty wines and laid-back lifestyle, recently Madeira has been increasingly popping up on the adventure tourism radar thanks to its world-class surfing, lush interior and stunning trails along its misty volcanic ridges. The most rewarding climb is definitely Arieiro, a rocky peak whose trails take travelers through verdant eucalyptus forests to a lunar landscape high above the clouds.
Madeira Mountain Tour is a Full Day Saturday tour that will take you to the highest and the easternmost points in Madeira.
On this tour you’ll have a chance to walk from Achada do Teixeira to Pico Ruivo (yes, the highest of the Peaks!) and back, and then hike the beautiful Ponta de São Lourenço, Madeira’s easternmost region with its (simultaneous!) views of the north and south coasts of the island, the Desertas Islands and, on clear days, of Porto Santo as well.
The total walking time is about 4h30 with a short drive between the two walks. As usual we’ll pick you up and return you to your hotel when we finish.
As a safety measure, The Peaks walk (Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo) is closed as of Saturday 12 October 2013 due to a rockfall on the path.
Pico Ruivo, Madeira’s highest peak at 1861m (and one of the 1,515 ultra prominent peaks in the world, is still accessible from Achada do Teixeia (PR 1.2) or Encumeada (PR 1.3) for a more challenging walk!
We will adjust our offer on Saturdy to include a visit to Pico Ruivo and publish a new Saturday offer shortly.
