Full description
Enjoy the unique landscapes of Madeira and explore traditional villages that still retain their historic charm in this full-day adventure. The day begins with hotel pick up before the group heads out to Serra de Agua valley, named for the old water mills that run in the town. Walk through laurel forests in Encumeada and Chão dos Louros and take an easy walk up to see the Levadas, canal systems developed in the 16th century. 

From here the journey continues off-road, where your driver will take you to discover amazing landscapes and hidden viewpoints.
