Description of Madeira walking holiday, self guided

This self guided walking holiday takes you to the sub-tropical island of Madeira, where you’ll spend eight days exploring the beautiful and diverse landscape on foot. Every day will bring something new, from walks along soaring coastal cliffs to ambles past vine terraces and along mountain slopes sprinkled with traditional white villages. Covering up to 14 km a day, you’ll walk from hotel to hotel, following a series of coastal paths and levadas (the island’s network of water channels) from Santana in the north to Funchal on the southern coast, from where you’ll be transferred to Levada do Norte for incredible cliff top views. Nature lovers will be in their element here. There are more than 120 endemic species of flora and fauna, and the incredibly rich birdlife includes the bird-of-paradise.

All your accommodation is arranged in advance and it’s almost as varied as the landscape. It includes a seaside hotel with a mountainous backdrop, a guesthouse in an elegant 1920s home and a chic 5-star hotel that’s one of the most exclusive on the island.
