What To Expect

It will be decided together with the guide where to start and how much climbing according to the group experience, but we will probably start just outside the Madeira Natural Parque (1200m). From this point we climb aproximatly 6km and 300 meteres elevation before we start our fun descend and then ride the "Levada" in direction of Portela, with the endemic Laurel Forest covering the trail, with an endless green color. The sightseeing point of Portela offers a spectacular view over the North side of the island, in particular over the coastal village of Porto da Cruz. After a small break in a nice bar we continue our tour inside the Reserve Natura 2000 network, along dirt roads and trails, always with the endemic Laurel Forest surrounding the trails. After some km and some small climbs, we reach Fajã dos Rolos, where we take an old road down to Machico, finishing at sea level just in time for a drink and a swim!
