The hike to the 25 fonts (25 fountains) is among the most popular on Madeira - and for good reason. You'll spend about 3 hours and walk around 4-5km to be rewarded with more waterfalls than you can count once you arrive. Be sure to bring a bathing suit if you wish to swim in the lagoons under the falls!

As a side note - this hike is not recommended for people with vertigo or fear of heights as there are sections with steep drop offs

Melbourne, Australia

In einer Höhenlage von rund 1000 metern wird Madeira von Moorlandschaften beherrscht. Dieses Gebiet umfasst den auf Madeira fast einzigartigen Laurisilva-Wald, der von der UNESCO zum Weltkulturerbe erklärt wurde. Der Bau der 25 Fontes Levada, die auch als Levada do Rabaçal bekannt ist, begann schon im Jahr 1835. Am 16. September 1855 durchlief das Wasser zum ersten Mal die Levada. Die beiden Levadas im Gebiet bringen Wasser aus zwei Nebenflüssen von Ribeira Grande zusammen und münden in den Staudamm von Calheta, bevor sie landwirtschaftliches Land bewässern. Die Wanderung endet an einem malerischen Teich der von vielen kleinen Wasserfällen gespeist wird.
