We did the 25 Fontes Levada. We parked the car on the ER110 road (the parking is easily seen when driving on the road). We walked 2 kms down to Casa de Rabacal. There is also an option to take a shuttle to/from Casa Rabacal....More

The risco waterfall is really worth it and should be your first and only stop. The 25 fontes is very crowded and only reachable after a long, narrow, slippery path with steep drops. Wear hiking boots if you are inclined to try and do not...More

This walk is nice and easy. No need to be exceptionally fit to do this walk, though the last 2km winding road back to the car park could be a bit tiring (shuttle van available). If the weather is dry you could do this walk...More

Our visit to the levada and 25 fountains was lovely, really enjoyed the walk through the trees. The path was narrow in places but most people were polite and passing was not too much of an issue. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us...More

Of all the levada walks we have done, this is definitely the prettiest although you might not think that when you are walking down the steep tarmac road at the start (you can take the minibus but expect to wait for awhile). As everybody else...More

You can either walk down a not too exciting road (and up on your way back) for 2 kilometers or take the minibus, which costs about 5 euros. The 25 fontes is a beautiful place, but since this is one of the most popular levada...More

On the way there we met so many huge groups of tourists, we had to move with them ad there was no other way. Often the levada is only few centimeters wide and when you meet with someone who goes opposite way, it is hard...More

Walking on levadas is very interesting, you can see many waterfalls, a wonderful nature and amazing mountains. Levada 25 fontes is the most beautiful levada on island. Everyone can go there, it's easy hiking. You don't need a guide for this activity.

Go early and you will enjoy this walk. It's beautiful. There is supposed to be a shuttle from the parking to the start of the walk but it wasn't running yet when we got there (9:30). The walk downhill did not bother us. The whole...More

We chose this walk because it offered a glimpse of the north side of the island, views of waterfalls and an introduction to the levadas. Our guide Rita was excellent, and the walk much more interesting because of her knowledge and insights. This is a...More

The walk is very strenuous, hilly, single file a lot of the way, lots of steps. Coming back up you can get a mini bus definitely wouldn't walk back.

Yes, driving along the ER110 you will see a parking area and a big sign with the hiking map. There'll probably be a lot of cars there. You really can't get lost - there is no need for a guide. We walked all three paths... More
