Walking Week In Madeira

Following Madeira's characteristic 'levadas' (narrow irrigation channels) we walk some of the best trails on this dramatically beautiful volcanic island. Hike the impressive 'balcony walk' - a path hewn into the cliff face - to the summit of Pico Ruivo (1862m). We also spend time in the capital Funchal where we can enjoy some fresh fish and a glass of Madeira wine!

Tour Highlights

  • Funchal - Laid-back city with beautiful gardens, parks, historic buildings and a colourful market
  • Sao Lourenco Peninsula - Cliff top walk with stunning coastal views
  • Levada Paths - Variety of picturesque walks alongside the island's unique irrigation channels
  • Ponta do Sol - Quaint coastal town with beautiful sunsets
  • The Balcony Walk - Spectacular views along this famous path between the high peaks of Arieiro and Ruivo
