This walking trip in Madeira is a bit like walking through an enchanted forest! You walk through the Primary Forest with its thick vegetation, endemic wildlife and native bird song, past kilometres and kilometres of mesmorizing terraced crops, following levadas, through tunnels and up to the summit of the Pico Ruivo. Phew! The landscape changes from lush green to an arid and jagged coastline, remote, rustic and quite simply breath taking. You end the trip in Funchal, a lively little city and a gentle 'bring you back down to earth' thud!
