Levada do Caldeirão Verde is a stunning waterfall journey in Madeira that offers breathtaking views, lush vegetation, and a unique opportunity to witness the power of nature. Start in Queimadas parking lot, where you will follow the channel along 6.4km until you reach Caldeirão Verde Waterfall, with its 100-meter drop into a plunge basin. For an extra challenge, continue onto the 4.4km Levada do Caldeirão do Inferno – a path that includes 8 tunnels and winding stairs that lead you to another spectacular waterfall. Along the way, you will have plenty of chances to marvel at the beautiful green cauldron, rushing waterfalls and valleys. Bring proper waterproof shoes - and don't forget your camera - as this magnificent hike is bound to be one of the highlights of your trip!
