Hiking week on Madeira

Experience Madeira actively - with enjoyment and comfort

Madeira invites you to go hiking. The different impressions on our hikes are spectacular - an absolute experience that you will never forget again. The plants and floral world is unique.

There is something for every hiker - from the levadatour, the royal tour around the Pico Ruivo or the breathtaking view on the coastal walk.

You walk along magnificent bays, spectacular views, and lush vegetation and can indulge in Madeira 12 months in the year of your passion, hiking.

It's always time to stop in a quaint pub, recharge your batteries with a Brisa passion fruit or pure bica and a prego no prato or a piece of cake, and at the end of the hike the traditional poncha is compulsory.

We choose from a variety of hikes 5 different tours. You will get to know the island of Madeira from its most beautiful side.

The walks take between 4 - 5 hours.

Arrival on Madeira

We pick you up at the airport, bring you to your booked hotel and meet us for a first welcome drink and meeting in the Bar Rodrigues.

A selection from our tour program

Levada do Rei – Ribeiro Bonito

We always walk along the Levada do Rei. Exotic as well as native plants accompany our way. Our path ends at the wildly romantic streambed of the Ribeiro Bonito, a wonderful spot in the midst of the exuberant nature that invites you to linger and relax.

Levada do Furado

After a worthwhile detour to the viewpoint Balcões, from where you have a magnificent view of the mountains of Madeira, it goes back to the Levada do Furado (trout levada). We walk through lush vegetation and dense 'Laurissilva' forest. Blueberry and Erica trees line our way.

Madeira's summit tour – from Pico Arieiro to Pico Ruivo

This alpine summit tour connects the three highest mountains. Rock formations tower into the sky like timeless statues. From Pico Ruivo we have a magnificent panoramic view.

On the old wine transport route - coastal walk

Our hike begins above Caniçal and we first walk through barren volcanic landscape with a great view of the eastern cape. Then it goes on the varied coastal path always uphill and downhill, through laurel and fern forest to Port da Cruz.

Ponta de São Lourenço

The easternmost part of the island of Madeira is a nature park with a fantastic panoramic view. Tuff and basalt shimmer in the sunlight and transform the bizarre rock formations.

Cascatas and Lagoas

We walk in the Rabaçal area. This hike is not an ordinary hike. Cascades plunge into rock pools, unique lakes invite you to take a dip in the crystal-clear water. A diverse, rewarding hiking experience.

Vereda do Fanal

We walk across the Pico da Fajã da Lenha with changing views of the area of Rabaçal or the east side to Chão da Ribeira. In Fanal, over 500 year old stinkberry trees add to a magical fairytale forest. Watch the spectacle of surf on the rugged coast in Porto Moniz and treat yourself to a swim in the natural pools.
