In the heart of Laurissilva World Natural Heritage by UNESCO​,​ the trail goes along a mountain crest that connects the Paul da Serra plateau and Fanal. The path is mostly surrounded by high bushes​,​ interrupted bv short crossings of tree covered areas. The walk zigzags and in gentle sloaps descend and climb a few of moderate level leads to viewpoints south that offer a glimpse of the Valley of Ribeira da Janela​,​ and sometimes takes to the northern side of the Island and the valley over Chão da Ribeira and Seixal. The trekker is often surprised by hundred-year-old Laurels and Stink Laurels​,​ which will have a wider and wider trunk towards Fanal​,​ where a lot of them are more than two hundred years old​,​ covered by hanging lichens​,​ evidence of the pureness and moistness of the air​,​ that carries a wondering mist created by Föhn effect that crosses the landscape showering the visitor with an everchanging perspective created by the light momentarily cut by shade adding a magical​,​ mysterious feeling. Before arriving at Fanal​,​ the Viewpoint Fio gives the feeling of hanging over Chão da Ribeira​,​ and shows the northern Madeira Shoreline. From the ridge prior to the last descent to Fanal stands over the most isolated village in Madeira with few inhabitants​,​ Ribeira Funda. 🚶🏼 Distance: 10.8 km ⚙️ Difficulty: Moderate 🚍 Pick-up​​/​​Drop-off Information: Pick-up​​/​​drop-off is free for travelers in Funchal​​,​ Santa Cruz and Câmara de Lobos; Pick-ups​/​drop-offs outside these locations will have a cost to be determined and paid at the pick-up time; After reserving this tour​​,​ you'll be contacted by the Tour Operator to arrange the pick-up​​/​​drop-off; Drop-off is also included. ℹ️ Additional Info: Comfortable clothes and sunscreen are recommended; Water should be packed; Children must be accompanied by an adult; Our company reserves the right to change our activity due to weather conditions.
