There are 2092km of hiking trails that Madeira is renowned for, and you are ideally located to explore some of the most breath-taking right on your doorstep. These narrow stone irrigation channels run across the Island through lush mountain countryside to deep into the Laurislilva forest. Spectacular scenery awaits, from awe-inspiring Ocean panoramas to glorious hidden waterfalls.
