Walk some of Madeira’s levadas on this special holiday

The levadas of Madeira are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They extend in total to some 800 kilometres and were designed to transport water for several different uses. They had their beginnings in the 15th century when basic water channels were created to supply water needed for crops and mills. Over the ensuing centuries they were expanded by private enterprise until the 19th century when the island saw the introduction of State levadas with some 400 kilometres of levadas being created between 1947 and 1967! Today they offer an opportunity to view this beautiful island from a unique perspective.

Please note this holiday is not suitable for anyone who suffers from vertigo.
