The Madeira Levada paths take you into areas totally inaccessible by normal means and give you views that are perfectly breathtaking. There are over 1400 kilometres of levadas and they provide a remarkable network of walking paths. The majority of them provide easy and comfortable access through beautiful countryside filled with laurel forests, whilst others are more challenging with walks over peaks and mountains, through tunnels and under waterfalls, taking hikers into a rare natural world not available anywhere else in the world.
You can begin your hiking adventure directly from the front door of the Quinta Alegre.
Our competent and experienced staff can always advise you with regard to the selection of your hikes.
An experienced hiking guide is usually available in the house and on hand for useful information and tips to help make your walk safe and enjoyable.
