Full description
Enjoy a 3-hour levada (aqueduct) walk with fascinating landscapes incorporating tremendous valleys, spectacular waterfalls, infinite laurel, header forest, and beautiful springs. This and much more is what the Rabaçal area has to offer.

At this height the landscape is dominated by moorland, which includes Erica arborea and Erica scoparia as well as Madeiran whortleberry. This vegetation alters with the altitude as it reduces other predominate species, including the rare mountain mocano (Pittosporum coriaceum). This area includes Madeira’s Laurisilva Forest, which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
