Unlike some of the other recent reviewers, we only walked a section of the Levada do Norte, starting from Boa Morte, parking at the O Pinheiro snack bar, and following walk #7 in Rolf Goetz's book of walks in Madeira. The walk goes towards the...More

Another levada walk starting at Estreito de Camara - there was very little clue as to where this started which is typical of these walks. Once found and car parked the walking is easy as they all are because they are relatively flat. Being linear...More

We walked several levadas on our trip and this was our least favourite. We walked the (longish) length from Boa Morte to the coast at Cabo Girao. Generally it is in good repair and reasonably easy walking but sections do need care. So decent footware...More

We walked about 6 kilometers on the route. Some places the path was both narrow and slippery, so good shoes are a must. There are some places where there is a very long way down from a very narrow path, so cannot be recommended to...More

The walk is almost flat, and the only technical bits are within the first five hundred metres of the start: some uneven steps with no handrail, but my eighty year old dad banged with minimal difficulty. There is a layby for two cars just below...More

The views and walk is breath taking. Walked for hours so be prepared with water and food. Also, beware that the route after Ribeira Brava towards São Vicente is difficult, uneven and some parts I found dangerous so must be very confident. Overall an interesting...More

Well this one 'levada del norte' is safe. The parts where there are sheer drops have an alternative route and I did notice a nr of new rails had been added. We did our walks with both our kids, 10 and 12 years old and had no... More
