Madeira is an archipelago in front of the northwestern coast of Africa that belongs to Portugal. An old irrigation system built by farmers crosses the entire island and will give us the chance to reach many beautiful spots by foot. On this 1-day hike, we’ll follow one of these water channels, called levadas. Don’t miss this trip across Vereda do Larano!

Our program will start in the village of Machico and finish in Porto da Cruz. On the way, we’ll discover some of the most dazzling landscapes on the north coast of Madeira. We’ll have some stunning photo ops as we walk with the sea at our side and admire the local vegetation.

Take into account that this hike has a medium level of difficulty. Also, we’ll cover a distance of 10,5 kilometers and spend 4-5 hours walking. Therefore, it’s very important not to be afraid of heights and to be in good physical shape.

So, does this hike in Vereda do Larano sound exciting? Then all you have to do is send the request and book your place on the trip. I’ll be happy to be your guide on this program!

Other attractive possibilities in Madeira could be these hikes that I lead in Levada dos Cedros and Levada do Alecrim. Check them out!

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.
