The Levada Trek - Madeira - self guided tour

Water is the artery of life.


The Madeirans were so convinced of this that they created something unique on their island: a network of waterways more than a thousand kilometres long. It runs through Madeira, cuts through the island and makes its way through the highest mountains. A monumental structure was created. These "levadas" made Madeira fertile and brought modest prosperity. Our journey takes you from the origins of the levadas in the heart of the island to the terraced fields. You will see the elegant way in which this construction merged with nature as you hike a network of paths created as a by-product of building the levadas. It is one of its kind in the world and absolutely fascinating.
