Day 1 – Hikking Week – 25 Fountains

On the Day 1 of our EPIC Hikking Week we’ve started with one of the most famous walks in the island, the 25 Fountains in Rabaçal.

It’s the perfect way to assess the fitness level of the hikers, since it can be adjusted to everyone’s level it’s the perfect first day.

This very special tour is located on one of the most amazing places and it’s completely surrounded by endemic flora from start to finish, it’s also part of UNESCO world heritage.

Besides the amazing flora we also have several species of endemic flora, and really impressive waterfalls that we can see along with the incredible man-made levadas that were perfectly and in complete harmony with nature. We’re also able to see the huge tunnel that supplies water to a hidro power plant.

It’s really a must do hike when you’re in Madeira Island. And with our Local Mountain Guide it’s even more special.

Here are some pictures of this first day:
