Flower Paradise Madeira

About This Walk

The Floating Garden Of The Atlantic Ocean

Thanks to the trade winds the volcanic island in the Atlantic Ocean has a lush subtropical fauna. Especially the wealth and variety of flowers are incredible. The sophisticated system of more than 2.200 km irrigation canals to water the sugar cane-, wine- and banana plantations presents a perfect network of walking paths along these “Levadas“. Mountain paths to bizarre peaks with breath taking views across the blue ocean. You hike through two different regions and climate zones of Madeira, close together and yet completely different.
