Tour Details

We start on the south side of the island on a Levada in Machico until we get the ascent to the ancient trails which used to be used to connect the villages, on the north of Porto da Cruz and Machico and Caniçal (on the south). This is a walk suitable for anyone with some experience, as even the more technical parts are still accessible to everyone reasonably fit! A perfect hike for those who would love to walk between sea and land, So when we call it on the Edge of Paradise, its for it! The trail as good maintenance, as we pass at a safe distance and protected ledges on this amazing cliff, scented by the sea breeze, which makes this the perfect habitat for plants that just occurs on this levels, so this walk provides also the observance of the existence of an important diversity of habitats!
