Detailed Product Description
The first Portuguese word hikers learn on Madeira is usually 'Levada.' Levada hiking is unique in the whole world. A sophisticated network of narrow irrigation canals runs across the entire island. The maintenance paths installed next to the canal trenches allow the easy exploration of Madeira, without great height gain, to the most remote corners. Around half of the trips in this guide are Levada excursions that lead through fertile orchards and past artistic terraces molded into the island'srugged topography. Yet for all the fascination of the Levada paths, this volcano island also is fabulous territory for mountain walkers. The nearly 1900-m high central massif contains routes for all tastes. The triple summit tour from the Arieiro over the Torres to the Pico Ruivo is most alpine in character. This stretch, spectacularly chiselled into the rock, is considered the 'royal path.' Then there are the 'Veredas,' old paths, linking villages, that used to be the sole access to remote locations until just a few decades ago.
