Description

Levada Queimadas & Caldeirão Verde – Full Day

On this levada walk, you will experience everything: a Levada, big trees, bridges, aqueduct, tunnels, cascades and small waterfalls. We will start the walk in Queimadas Forest Park, in Santana – a delightful little town, well-known for its A-framed thatched houses. We will walk from here following the path along the Levada, under the trees and the mountains, going through the old hand-carved tunnels. When you reach the fantastic high waterfall – at the impressive Caldeirão Verde natural lake, you’ll feel you have arrived at paradise! You can enjoy a reinvigorating swim under the waterfall or relax and savour your picnic and take in the fantastic surroundings. You’ll see excellent examples of an ancient-looking forest, which could be the scene of the Jurassic Park films. The hike is majestic!
