Are you looking for a program to relax in the middle of nature? Then follow me on this 1-day hike in Madeira, the Portuguese archipelago in front of the northeast coast of Africa, and discover stunning natural spots with waterfalls and lakes. We’ll cross a lush forest and follow the Levada do Alecrim.

Our hike will begin at an altitude of 1,200 meters in a refuge in the Laurissilva Forest. By taking the trail along the Levada do Alecrim, we’ll discover plenty of gorgeous waterfalls and crystalline lagoons on the way. Among them is the Lagoa da Dona Beja waterfall, with an altitude of 80 meters, and the Lagoa do Vento lagoon. Then, we’ll continue walking among beautiful trees until we reach the shelter house in Rabaçal.

As for the requirements, keep in mind that we’ll hike for 4 hours and may face difficult sections on the way. That’s why is important to have a very good level of fitness for this program.

So, are you ready for an exciting adventure in Portugal? Then send the request to book your place and spend the day exploring the gorgeous lakes and waterfalls of Madeira.

I also lead other hiking experiences on the island, such as this trip from Machico to Porto da Cruz!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
