Restrictions Guests must be able to walk a roughly 3 miles (5 kms) over 2 hours with varying terrain with inclines and steps.

The excitement begins as your small group is picked up at the port and whisked away to Lavada do Norte, one of the most famous lavadas on Madeira.

Enjoy an easy, 5 kilometer (3 mile) walk along this 15th century water irrigation channel, as you savor superb views of the south coast under the guidance of your fully qualified, local mountain expert. Take in the jaw-dropping panoramic scenery and capture photos that will make your family and friends jealous of your day spent outside of Madeira.

Next, journey into the eucalyptus forest filled with silver laurel, lush ferns, curious animals and more as you make your way toward the magical hamlet of Eira do Mourao, with its ancient houses perched along a rocky spur.

Conclude your tour at Cabo Girao View Point, for breathtaking views of the villages and the Pacific Ocean below. Feeling brave? Test your mettle, as you walk along the glass observation platform suspended more than 580 meters (1,903 feet) above sea level.
