Overview

Considered one of the prettiest levada walks in Madeira, the Ribeiro Frio hike will not disappoint. Starting in the northern hills of the island, you’ll wind your way through the natural park, past mountains and valleys and through prehistoric laurel forests, all the way to where you’ll see Porto da Cruz stretch out in front of you.

Over 2,000km of aqueduct-like levadas criss-cross Madeira, delivering much-needed water to the dry south-west of the island, also doubling up as scenic walking trails. You’ll join up with a professional guide who will navigate the way as you follow the path along the beautiful Ribeiro Frio levada.

You’ll come across magical laurel forests hiding tiny birds like chaffinches and Trocaz pigeons, and you might even glimpse the shine of trout beneath the flowing water. As for panoramas, you’ll have a bird’s-eye view of the parish of Porto da Cruz and Eagle’s Rock far below. You’ll have just under five hours of total peace and tranquillity among nature.
