About the Experience

The Levada Rabaçal begins in Paul da Serra, more precisely in Rabaçal. From this point, we can observe one of the most beautiful valleys of Madeira, the Rabaçal Valley and down to the Forest House of Rabaçal.

We operate in full Laurissilva Forest, a World Heritage site. After a few meters of pure beauty, we make our first visit to the stunning waterfall of Risco.

After a break in the Risco balcony, we follow our path. All around you can be dazzled by the green beauty of the forest and the sound of nature, the natural heart of  Madeira Island.

We can enjoy a variety of plant species, to highlight the Tree Heather (Erica arborea), Besom Heath (Erica scoparia) and Madeira Bilberry (Vaccinium padifolium).

Among many species of birds, hopefully, we can find the Trocaz Pigeon (columba trocaz trocaz) a unique species of Madeira.

In the end, we find the 25 Fontes and its beautiful green and fresh lagoon, surrounded by vines and giant ferns. After appreciating its natural and breathtaking scenery, we go round the same track back.
