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!

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.
All Nature Meetings levada walks will take place normally during the 2013 Madeira Rally (August 2 to 4).
The only exception is The Peaks walk (Pilgrim’s Path), on Saturday the 3rd of August, which will be walked “the-other-way-around”, from Achada do Texeira (Pico Ruivo) to Pico Arieiro.
If you’re an independent walker or if you choose to follow the rally, please keep your safety and that of others in mind at all times. Always cooperate with the rally Safety Marshals, the police, and with any member of the organization. For further info, check the RVM website and get to know their spectator safety instructions.
WalkMe wants to provide their customers access to top quality information about Madeira levada walks. Thus, every levada trail on WalkMe which Nature Meetings offers as a guided walk links directly to our website’s walk description for extra info.
For many good reasons, we believe you should always walk with a professional, certified mountain guide. Still, if you choose otherwise, WalkMe will keep you in very good company.
