Tour Details

Our Madre of life Levada walk will start were the Levada ends, and walk through it until we find the *Madre (*the name of a start of a Levada), starting the walk in the middle of the exotic vegetation as the Mimosas and Eucalyptus, and ending up penetrating on one of the lushest dazzling valleys of the island populated by endemic and native species. Along the way, we will be walking in some strenuous amazing parts, as for example right under a waterfall that cuts into the Levada letting us admire the perseverance and genius of the many who built this water canals in impossible cliffs and mountains. Once we get to the interior of the valley we will take a rest, recharging energies with our picking in order to return from this magic place.
