Restrictions Guests must be able to walk a roughly 6.25 miles (10km) over 4 hours with varying terrain with inclines and steps. Due to the quick pace, this tour is not suitable for any mobility restricted traveler including guests who need to sit and rest periodically. Parents with small children should take the terrain into consideration and use a baby carrier instead of a stroller since the paths are not all accessible to baby carriages. This tour is not wheelchair accessible.

Start your day as you and your small group meet your fully qualified mountain guide who will lead you along the path of the beautiful Levada do Rei. Admire the mix of endemic and exotic species, while your walk showers you with various perspectives of Santana and Sao Jorge below.

Your friendly, professional and knowledgeable guide will next lead you along the trail as it continues deep into the island's interior, to the lush forest that has been virtually untouched for more than 5 centuries.

Test your balance on rocky paths over a stream and walk past a multitude of towering trees including Laurel, Heather and Chaffinch. You will feel as though time has stopped while you breathe in the fresh mountain air and listen to the peaceful ambience.

If you love nature and the outdoors, then this is the tour for you; book now!

Please Note: This 4-hour moderate walk is available on Sundays only and is recommended for participants in good physical health with good mobility.
