Madeira: Madeira's system of irrigation channels, known as levadas, carry water down from the mountains on gentle gradients. These levadas provide a ready-made system of trails. There are 1,300 miles of them criss-crossing the island and they have level footpaths running along their entire length. Walkers of all ages & abilities can take in some of the finest countryside anywhere.
Its greatest attraction is the subtropical climate, sometimes referred to as the 'island of eternal spring'. Even in winter the temperature rarely falls below 17C and rarely exceeds 23C in high summer.
