Ribeiro Frio - Portela

Wednesday (Full Day)


Ribeiro Frio - Portela

This is perhaps the most well known levada in Madeira.
As we walk along this footpath you will marvel at the display of light and shade filtering through the laurel and heather trees. The trout swimming in the levada along side the path, dash for cover as they perceive our approach. As we near Lamaceiros, the view of Porto da Cruz and Eagle Rock far below are out of this world. A walk that must not be missed. 

Dif. Grade: Moderate walk.

Walking time: 4.5 Hours.

Distance: 12 Km
