It was only the creation of irrigation canals - also known as Levadas - and thus the
transport of rainwater from the north to the warm and sunny south of the island of Madeira
that gave the population today's prosperity. This was the initial spark for agriculture,
which is still largely based on bananas and especially flowers today.
Almost all of these channels, not a few of which are more than a hundred years old, are still in operation and, of course, are regularly serviced and replaced if necessary.
The maintenance routes have developed into popular hiking trails with tourism, as they can almost always be mastered without any significant inclines. Nonetheless, some of the hikes also have various difficulties to offer: They are partly built very exposed into the steep rock walls, rockfalls damage the safety rails and in many cases the sometimes narrow sections are also slippery or waterfalls cut the path, unless you want to take a strong shower.
With me as your guide you will overcome all these difficulties!
Visit with me the Levada 25 Fontes, the Caldeirao Verde or Caldeirao Inferno on the north side or the Levada Nova in the south. In any case, you can expect an unusual view into the depths of Madeira.
As your hiking guide, I speak German, English and French.
The following hikes along the irrigation canals can be found in our program, we are happy to work out individual routes.
