Vereda dos Balcões in Madeira is the perfect hike for anyone looking for a fun, yet easy journey. The short, 3-kilometre round-trip trek contains mostly flat terrain with no challenges and sits at 860 metres above sea level; perfect for those seeking a relaxing walk or after an intense day of hiking. Those venturing to this stunning location can expect spectacular views of the madeiran peaks as they meander through lush forests and hidden valleys. Despite being short, there’s plenty to explore, including waterfalls and bridges. Don’t forget to stop by for a bite at Flor da Selva snack bar, ensuring you fuel up for your journey!
