Explore the magic and natural beauty of Madeira on foot. This challenging hike takes you to the island's highest point, Pico Ruivo. Standing here affords incredible panoramic views of the entire island.

Follow your expert guide along the famous levadas (irrigation channels) that follow the winding network of reservoirs. Admire the unspoiled landscape as you pass by some of the oldest Madeira heather woods and let your imagination run free as you gaze at stunning volcanic rock formations shooting into the sky.

The trail takes you to the island's highest peak, Pico Ruivo—6,106 feet (1,861 m) high and only accessible by foot. Its unique position on the island provides unbeatable views from coast to coast. Listen carefully as your guide explains the importance of the levadas as well as the stories behind their construction.
