What to expect

The Referta levada walk is an easy stroll through lush countryside to hidden gems that are only accessible by foot. You'll spend the morning following this 5.5km-long levada trail from Referta to Castelejo, winding your way through agricultural terraces and charming villages.

If you're interested in seeing how locals manage to farm the land in Madeira, then this walking tour will give you an insight into the farming lifestyle on the island. You'll join an experienced guide for a walk along the Referta levada past the agricultural terraces cut into the hillsides to grow fruit and vegetables.

You'll see some of the villages in the north-east pop up in the distance as well as the flora and fauna that can be found on the island. Your guide will help to point out endemic species and with only nature around you, you'll be able to enjoy a few hours of peace and tranquillity in Madeira.
