However, as it is touted as an absolute highlight of the many travel agencies, a start time is recommended at 13:00 clock. The last bus leaves at 6:30 pm for the parking lot! The way back from the forester's lodge up to the parking lot is 2 km paved road - boring for children, to which constant, more or less steeply rising!

The tour to the 25 sources is certainly a highlight about which you are happy if you did it. Although it is actually a walk, it still requires good physical condition and endurance. Finally, you walk on rather rough roads. But that's exactly what the ambitious hiker wants - excitement and experiences. You'll get that, though it depends on which direction you start the hike. So it is possible with or without the approximately 200 m long tunnel - which is a highlight in itself. And once you get there, you will not fail to join a second tour - you will automatically find the signposting - with a truly beautiful, giant waterfall. In any case, pure watchwood. It is therefore recommended to take something to drüberziehen with.
Have fun 👍👁👁💧

Did the tour on our penultimate day due to the many enthusiastic comments here and I'm disappointed. I have made 8 other treks on Madeira, which had more impressive highlights to offer. The worst thing was the whole people who constantly came to meet you on the narrow Levadapfad. You could not enjoy the nature, because you had to constantly pay attention to the way.

Levada path sometimes very narrow. Good sure-footedness and good hiking footwear are very advantageous here.
A wonderful hike that we can only recommend. With the bus in front of the hotel picked up and driven to the starting point, was still the relaxed part 😎. From there it went on by foot. Partly on paved roads and then on the island-typical hiking trails. Good footwear is also mandatory here, because the paths were not always so good "walkable". Partly it was only in a queue in succession, hoping that no oncoming traffic arises. If that was the case, it was time to move feet in, move your back towards the rock and belly.
On the whole, this has been a moderate hike that requires a bit of fitness. Try it! And special thanks go to our hiking guide Anna!

Great levada hike to the 25 Fontes, which flow into a pool here as more or less large waterfalls, but which is unfortunately very overcrowded. Arriving very early is recommended here, otherwise you will constantly collide with the guided groups and have to wait forever.
It is then worth making a detour to the adjacent high plateau, where the locals like to spend their free time.
