Madeira levadas, hiking and trekking routes - map, descriptions, information

The starting point for the PR 1 trail

Trails or levadas?

In Madeira, the names "trails" and "levada" are often used interchangeably, but if we go into details, not every trail is a levada and not every levada is a trail.
There is no need to explain what the trail is, but a few words about what a levada is will be useful.
Madeira is covered with a system of channels or, in other words, open, small channels used to transport rainwater from the north to the south of the island. Levadas were created in the XNUMXth century and were used to irrigate fruit (mainly banana) and sugar cane crops not in the south. The cool water from the north of the island is perfect for this.
In total, about 200 levadas with a total length of 2500 km were created.
Along the levadas there are paths that help to maintain the technical condition and patency of the channels. Levads transport water using only gravity drops and are in no way supported by additional devices. They are still used as an irrigation system until today.
Some of the paths along the levadas are additionally used for tourist purposes and can be safely walked along. Hence, the trails are often called levadas, and levadas - trails.

How many trails are there in Madeira?

Currently, 30 routes are marked and marked in Madeira (some of them are closed periodically). Some follow paths along levadas, and some run independently. The routes are numbered and marked with wooden plates.
It is worth paying attention to the numbering of the routes. Some of them have double-digit numbers separated by a period. So there is the route number PR 1 and the routes number PR 1.1, PR 1.2 and PR 1.3. Does this numbering matter? Yes of course!
If some trails have the first digit in common, it means that they all start in the same place. So they have one node in common.
In the cases listed above, the common point is Madeira's highest peak, Pico Ruivo.

Map of the Madeira trails

Below is a map of Madeira with the approximate location of the routes. If you want to check the location of one, just find its number on the map below.
Knowing the approximate location of the trails will allow you to easily plan the order in which to visit the attractions you are interested in. It will also make it easier to choose the right place to stay, located near the routes you are interested in.
More detailed maps of the levadas and all the trails can be found in the short descriptions later in the text.
Some of the trails (the most popular ones) are described in more detail, with separate entries with photos devoted to them. Links to such entries (if any) can be found in the content below.

Descriptions of the trails

Below I present a short description all official trails and levadas available in Madeira.
Of course, there are many more levadas on the island, but they are not marked in any way and are not adapted to tourist traffic. I also do not have such knowledge about them that I can describe it in any meaningful way.
So I will limit myself to proposing only those marked, described with official maps and maintained in a technical condition suitable for tourist traffic.

PR 1 - Vereda do Pico do Areeiro
Pedra Rija - crossing the ridge to the trails of PR 1

According to many, the most beautiful trail in Madeira. It connects the three highest peaks on the island. It leads along picturesque mountain paths, rock ledges and tunnels. A detailed description of the trail can be found in a separate entry: Trail from Pico do Arieiro to the highest peak of Madeira Pico Ruivo (PR1 Vereda do Areeiro) - map, description, directions, parking

PR 1.1 - Vereda da Ilha

Quite a long but picturesque trail from the small village of Ilha to the highest peak of Madeira Pico Ruivo. The official materials mention the mountain shelter at Pico Ruivo as the starting point of the trail, but it is a bit illogical for me. It is impossible to get to the shelter by any means of transport (you have to get here a few kilometers, e.g. by a different route). So it's hard to consider this place as a starting point.
A better starting point is the village of Ilha, which can be reached by car, and is stated in the official brochures as the end of the trail.
So I will reverse the order and for me the trail starts at Ilha and ends at Pico Ruivo. In this arrangement, the entire length of the trail from Ilha to Pico Ruivo runs uphill.

PR 3 - Vereda do Burro

The trail runs from the summit of Pico do Arieiro to the Ecological Park of Funchal. Along the way, you will come across a rather interesting stone igloo structure, dating from 1813. In practice, an igloo is a special cellar that was once used to store ice for hotels and hospitals on the island. The outer characteristic dome is only the entrance to the underground cellar, in the form of a deep shaft: an ice store.

Levada belongs to a narrow group of the most beautiful and spectacular walking routes on the island. As the name suggests, it leads among 25 springs, some of which look spectacular in the form of waterfalls and rock pools. It is worth entering this levada on the list of obligatory attractions.

PR 6.1 - Levada to Risco

For the first 2,5 km, the PR 6 and PR 6.1 levadas follow the same route. Then (not far behind the catering point on the route) the levadas split and the PR 6.1 trail continues along the Levada to Risco, to the imposing waterfall where the hike ends.
People in decent shape can do a PR 6 levada, then a PR 6.1 levada. This will extend the entire trip on PR 6 by an additional 3 km and will be a total of about 12 km in both directions.

A very interesting trail leading partly along the Caldeirao Verde levada, crosses several mountain slopes, while maintaining an almost flat course, without tiring ascents and descents. How is this possible? The path leads through several hand-carved tunnels in the rock. So you don't have to climb to the top to cross the covered massif. During the trip, you need a flashlight, because the tunnels are not illuminated.

Sao Vicente area, Madeira

This is one of the weirdest hiking trails in Madeira and at the same time one of the strangest I know. The entire trail is less than 4 km long, and almost half of it runs through… tunnels. There are several of them on the route, and one is over a kilometer long (!!!). Between the tunnels there are views of the very photogenic Sao Vicente valley.

The longest one is about 750m and a flashlight will come in handy. The trail is quite long, and therefore it should be classified as difficult. Currently, the levada is closed periodically.
