Islands - Madeira, North Atlantic

Back to Map 

Visited: Mid June

Madeira has a network of irrigation channels called levadas. Together with suprisingly rugged volcanic mountains, these form a superb network of walking trails through beautiful and rustic countryside, with many weeks worth of walking possible. Away from Funchal, the largest population centre, Madeira has a tranquil quality enhanced by a sense of truly being an outpost of Europe far into the North Atlantic.
