Consignes de sécurité

The exposed sections and the crossing of a footbridge require a lack of vertigo. In winter this route along the levada can be slippery in places where there are small waterfalls and wet leaves. You will cross a few roads during your walk and even though most of them are quiet, please take care when crossing.

Conseils et recommandations supplémentaires

Packed lunch is essential on today’s walk as you won’t pass any restaurants or cafes along the way, packed lunch is available at your accommodation in Machico (at a small additional cost). Make sure to order the packed lunch upon your arrival or at least the night before.
Always make sure to carry plenty of water and to keep hydrated during your walk.

Ein langer Weg, immer an der Levada dos Tornos entlang. Am Anfang bieten die Tunnel etwas Abenteuer und ggf auch eine Delle am Kopf. Größere Personen sollte hier in jedem Fall nicht nur nach unten schauen. Entlang der Levada geht es ohne viel auf und ab immer am Berg entlang. Bei einigen Passagen sollte man in jedem Fall Trittsicher und einigermaßen Schwindelfrei sein. Hier geht es so manches Mal einige Meter senkrecht nach unten und der Weg ist auch sehr schmal. Am Ende des Weges gibt es dann noch einen schweißtreibenden Anstieg. Aber nun dauert es nicht mehr lange bis zum Hotel, wo ein netter Pool zum Abkühlen und Relaxen einlädt.
