From Funchal heading to the north side of the island, we will pass through Ribeiro Frio, where we will be surrounded by beautiful evergreen mountains. There, we will start our short walk from Levada da Serra do Faial into Balcões. After 30 minutes of walking (flat terrain), we will arrive at an incredible viewpoint in the middle of the valley where you will be able to see native birds flying around the highest peaks.
Afterward, we will do an off-road drive and visit one of the most emblematic towns in the island, Santana, known by its triangular shaped houses which served locals for centuries as dwellings and stables.
From there, we will go to Santo da Serra, more specifically, Ribeira Primeira Park: a unique and sustainable project in the middle of the forest that provides a relaxing atmosphere. There you can also catch your own trout for lunch, (not included). Then we will drive downhill through Morena while contemplating astonishing views over the southeast of the island.
