“Walk through 7 Km in the point to point hike of "Levada dos Maroços" through the highlands of Machico and see the "Socalcos", small agricultural fields that are layed in stone walls that resemble giant stair steps. The visitors will imerse in one important cultural aspect of Madeira Island, while enjoying the transformed landscape and view over the city of Machico.”

“For the hardened and veteran hikers or for those more entusiastic who want a challenge with fantastic landscapes of mountain and ocean, this is the hike to do. A point to point with 13Km or a 26 Km round-up of rough terrain with amazing views to both mountains and ocean, it will make your day if you are looking for excitment. Be aware that there are parts of slippery terrain so walking sticks are recommended. Bring a lunch if you plan to do this one :)”
