Meet a driver at your hotel in Funchal for a 9am departure, then travel to the town of Choupana, in the highlands above the Madeira coast.
Set an easy-going pace as you walk alongside an experienced hiking guide, following the Levada da Serra do Faial through the forest—islanders have been building these irrigation canals since the 16th century, bringing water to the most arid places on Madeira. This section of trail is known for a profusion of flowering plants, and the air is scented by thick stands of eucalyptus trees.
Soak up the quiet, peaceful atmosphere of the forest, emerging at point to viewpoints that look out across the picturesque villages that surround Funchal and Camacha.
Your walking tour comes to an end at the historic village of Camacha, known for traditional handicrafts and a thriving local culture. Finish the morning with return transfer to Funchal, and drop-off at your hotel.
