Full description
The Rabaçal 25 Fontes walk starts in the Rabaçal, a walk through the middle of the Laurissilva forest, through the irrigation canals that reach the lagoon from the 25 Fontes.

The origin of the name of the Levada of the 25 Fontes is due to the fact that there is a lagoon with 25 springs at the end of Levada, it is the most beautiful point of the whole walk with a large waterfall falling into a small lagoon. Throughout the tour you have an immense variety of species of flora and fauna  to gaze at on the island of Madeira.

This Levada has a small passage from the north coast to the south coast, with a very interesting history due to its origin and the way it was built. It is one of the most famous of all the islands because of the unforgettable landscapes and sensations along the whole walk.

Only 5 in the group (maximum is 8) and really makes a difference getting to know the others so we can move at a pace that works for everyone. No drama to stop for photos, speed up on the flats, linger a little at viewpoints. It's only when we encountered the mass groups marching single file through the narrower sections that I realised how fortunate we were to be early and small enough to be flexible. This is the best way to experience levada walking

Unser Tour Guide Fernando hat uns pünktlich am Treffpunkt abgeholt. Wir sind mit 7 Personen durch Madeiras „Märchenwald“, zu den Wasserfällen... total schön. Besonders toll war, dass Fernando alles über die Insel u die Pflanzen wusste. Er hatte Spaß daran uns seine wunderbare Insel zu zeigen... wir haben viel gelacht u gelernt, hatten einen tollen Tag auf Madeira. Bevor es zurück zum Schiff ging, gab es zum Abschluss in einer kleinen Bar noch Original Puncha. Sehr lecker Man sollte schon einigermaßen fit sein. Es geht auch steil hoch u runter.

Unsere kleine nette Gruppe hat sich schnell zusammengefunden und wir hatten viel Spaß mit der Wanderung und der wahnsinnigen Landschaft. Wir wurden von Luis mit dem Kleinbus am Hafen pünktlich abgeholt. Es ging dann ca. 1 Stunde durch gezählte 21 Tunnel zum Startpunkt in der Mitte der Insel. Erst ging es vom wanderparkplatz durch den Eukalyptuswald zum dunklen 800 m Tunnel. Am Ende des Tunnels eine Landschaft wie in Jurassic Park. Sensationell! Dann der tolle Weg, die Wasserfälle und die Levadas. Pause im sehr schönen Rabacal Cafe und dann wieder durch den Tunnel zurück. Man sollte einigermaßen fit sein, da es über viele Stufen und teilweise recht steil rauf und runter geht. Die Wahnsinnslandschaft entschädigt für die Anstrengung.
