The Levada das 25 Fontes hike is one of the most popular levada walks on Madeira. It’s not a typical flat levada walk because there’s some incline involved. The hike starts in Rabaçal and leads via the valley into the forest where you’ll pass many waterfalls along the way. The two most impressive waterfalls (after rainfall) are Risco waterfall and the 25 fountains waterfall. This is the source of the levada which is where the name ’25 fountains’ comes from. Along the way you can admire a wide variety of different species of the flora and fauna of the region. Watch this video for an impression of he Levada das 25 Fontes hike and Risco waterfall!
