What To Expect

Winding through the picturesque terraces above Machico, you'll come even closer to Madeira's breathtaking beauty on this 6km guided hike. This two-and-a-half-hour walk kicks off in Maroços and follows a flower-lined irrigation channel, complete with views over Machico and the Atlantic Ocean.Heading to the east of Madeira, you'll begin this easy country walk from the pretty hillside village of Maroços. It's located among lush agricultural terraces that appear like huge steps carved into the hills. You'll set off on foot with your guide and discover sights that you wouldn't be able to see by car as you spiral your way along the green terraces above Machico and through Mimosa Valley.We'll follow the irrigation channel – ‘levada' – and along the way you'll catch a glimpse of everyday island life as you spot farmers tending to their land and animals. What's more, you'll not be able to keep your eyes off the panoramic views over Machico and the Atlantic Ocean that unfold in front of you.
