The island guarantees pleasant temperatures the whole year round, so that hiking in Madeira at any time of the year is enjoyable.

Discover the beauty of nature by hiking in Madeira
Dream-like views in Madeira: Hiking in Madeira is paradise for every nature-lover. Tours are available at every difficulty level. Paths along the Levadas (artificial water canals for supply of the island) run through the island and add to the experience of hiking in Madeira. The hidden shepherd paths, which connect many villages with one another, offer as much of a gorgeous view of beautiful Madeira as the adventurous coastal walks. Terrace fields, steep slopes and thick forests will excite every hiker. Carpets of flowers, Laurel trees, giant Hydrangeas or even jungle-like vegetation shape many pictures of hiking trails on Madeira. You will discover ferns and lichens which you have never yet experienced. A landscape which enchants and invites to pause.
