Walking in Madeira by Paddy Dillon
Book DescriptionThis book describes a varied selection of 60 walks to suit all abilities, covering the whole of Madeira and Porto Santo, as well as a cruise to the Ilhas Desertas. The routes explore the dramatic cliff coastline, wander along level levada paths, penetrate dense laurisilva forests and traverse stone-paved paths from peak to peak in the high mountains. Most of the walks on the island are linear, and most of them start and finish on bus routes. The steep and rugged mountainsides of Madeira do not easily support circular walks. The guide offers a comprehensive introduction to Madeira and Porto Santo in 7 sections, lavishly illustrated with photographs and contoured maps, showing options for linking routes for longer treks, and almost 800km (500 miles) of walking on a variety of terrains.
