37 selected walks in all regions of Madeira

With its mild climate, lush vegetation and rugged landscape, Madeira is a year-round hiking destination. The island has something for everyone: from pleasant strolls along the levadas, the island’s unique irrigation channels, to challenging walks of an Alpine character.

Author Oliver Breda had been leading hiking tours along the trails of Madeira for almost 20 years. For this guidebook he has selected 37 walks in all regions of this popular holiday island.
