What to Expect
Spend time in nature during a 5-hour guided walk in Queimadas Natural Park. Travel from Funchal to the park and follow your mountain guide on a moderate trek through the wild.

This walk winds along the walkway of the levada (irrigation channel) of Caldeirão Verde at an elevation of 3,248 feet (990 meters). The levada is an impressive work of art built in the 18th century, beginning in the main stream bed of the Caldeirão Verde brook. Passing through steep cliffs and mountains, it carries the water that runs off the highest mountains of Madeira, which culminates in the irrigation of the farm lands of the parish of Faial. 

This levada is used for agricultural purposes, but it is also an important means of reaching the interior of the deep valley of the São Jorge brook on foot. It also offers a spectacular view of the mountainous terrain of the interior of the island. On your route, you will also have the opportunity to walk through tunnels carved by hand out of the rock.
