Madeira is an archipelago with incredible landscapes in front of the northwestern coast of Africa in Portugal. The main island is famous for its woods, volcanic mountains and endemic flora.

Risco consists of a group of several streams descending from an elevation of 100 meters. The sight is absolutely fabulous. As for 25 Fontes, the waterfall is in the middle of the exuberant Laurisilva of Madeira forest, one of the island jewels, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Besides the mistake in the description. “Sunrise to sunset”. We really enjoyed our guided tour. He was friendly, knew a lot to tell about Madeira and the environment, the nature and history. He gave us some tips for the rest of our holiday as well. He really made the tour end into a perfect day.
