About Caldeirão Verde Levada Walk

This walk begins at the Queimadas Forest Park at 980 meters above sea level, in the municipality of Santana, next to a shelter house with thatched roof, that seems to be taken from a fairy tale.

It’s inserted in full Laurissilva Forest (World heritage by UNESCO since 1999), where we can enjoy a wide variety of plant species.

Bird species are the Chaffinch, the Firecrest, the Grey Wagtail, the Buzzard and with luck the Long-toed Wood Pigeon. As we walk along the Levada, we will find ourselves in a green and pleasant landscape.

After passing 4 natural tunnels along the way, we will find the beautiful Caldeirão Verde, an impotent cascade whose water falls in a beautiful, emerald green lagoon.

After appreciating its natural landscape, we return by the same road to the Queimadas Forest Park.

Official mountain guide, transportation and personal insurance (according with the Portuguese law).
This hike is ideal for me?
The Levada between Queimadas and Caldeirão verde is a moderate walk and for that reason you will need to have a good physical condition to do it safely. This is a flat hike, but a long one. There are some parts exposed but very well protected. Is not recommended for people with vertigo and afraid of tunnels.
What kind of equipment I need to bring?
For this kind of levada walk, we recommend you bring comfortable clothes, rain and sun protection and shoes with good grip (never sandals or flipflop). We also recommend you to bring plenty of water.
Is food included on the tour?
The food is not included on the tour, but we have the possibility to provide you a picnic pack (extra cost).
I can swim in the end of the walk?
Yes, you can go for an invigorating swim in the Caldeirão Verde waterfall, but you need to know that you are in your own responsibility.
