Levada dos Cedros is one of the water channels that crosses the main island of Madeira. Come and discover its wonderful surroundings on this 1-day hiking program. You will love it!

Our hike will start in one of the most beautiful areas of Fanal where we’ll be surrounded by gorgeous old trees at an altitude of 1,300 meters. From there, we’ll descend until we reach the Levada dos Cedros. On the way, we’ll find the lovely ancient trees typical of the Laurissilva Forest and contemplate breathtaking views of the Ribeira da Janela valley. Apart from the flora, we will have the pleasure to see part of the local fauna, such as the lovely birds.

Regarding the level of difficulty, consider that we’ll cover a distance of around 7 kilometers and face an elevation gain of 300 meters. However, the hike is not very demanding so it’s only necessary to be in good physical shape.

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.
