Full description
The Rabaçal 25 Fontes walk starts in the Rabaçal, a walk through the middle of the Laurissilva forest, through the irrigation canals that reach the lagoon from the 25 Fontes. The origin of the name of the Levada of the 25 Fontes is due to the fact that there is a lagoon with 25 springs at the end of Levada, it is the most beautiful point of the whole walk with a large waterfall falling into a small lagoon. Throughout the tour you have an immense variety of species of flora and fauna  to gaze at on the island of Madeira. This Levada has a small passage from the north coast to the south coast, with a very interesting history due to its origin and the way it was built. It is one of the most famous of all the islands because of the unforgettable landscapes and sensations along the whole walk.

It was an all-round great experience in a great environment. In the middle of nature, over hill and dale, up and down stairs, always a little different from the "mass flow". Mini-group (3 participants), 11 km hike that took longer than planned, but the guide never put pressure on and adjusted to the pace. Opportunities to take photos and take a breather at any time, while the guide told us a lot about the flora. On the way back we spontaneously stopped for food in a forest cafe, as we only had water with us and had actually underestimated the effort of the tour. Take a jacket and comfortable sturdy shoes with you!

Very well organised small (8) guided tour led by experienced & knowledgeable guide Luis from Explore Nature. Despite wet weather conditions Luis led us on a very interesting route to:from the 25 Fontes lagoon. The steep paths were challenging at times but very manageable & no-one was rushed. Nice cafe/bar stop pre & post walk. Highly recommend as a ‘’must see’ levada

Our tour guide Fernando picked us up at the meeting point on time. We are with 7 people through Madeira's “fairy tale forest” to the waterfalls ... totally beautiful. It was especially great that Fernando knew everything about the island and the plants. He had fun showing us his wonderful island ... we laughed a lot and learned, had a great day in Madeira. Before we went back to the ship, we ended up with Original Puncha in a small bar. Very tasty You should be reasonably fit. It also goes steeply up and down.
