Full description
Follow a series of Lavadas (irrigation canals) through vibrant green surroundings full of endemic flora and fauna on this nature walk. 

Enjoy pickup from your accommodation or the Port of Funchal and head to the Forest Park of Ribeiro Frio, an area widely visited by tourists and residents. Follow an easy and accessible path and enjoy the unique landscapes surrounding the trail. 

Continue along the trail to reach the bridge, where you will ascend to Chão das Feiteiras. This irregular and somewhat slippery section of trail has open spaces that allow you to enjoy the surrounding landscape, as well as some ponds and waterfalls that supply the Levada.

The climb continues until reaching Chão das Feiteiras, a leisure area used by many Madeirans to enjoy time outdoors with family and friends. The route then descends down a section of stone path to Ribeiro Frio.
