Queimadas walk is in the enchanting emerald green and mossy paradise of the tropical rain forest (Laurisilva Forest), and has to be the most scenic walk in Madeira. First we take the path beside the old Levada do Caldeirão Verde which then will take us to one of the most remote areas of the island with spectacular views of the north coast. Making our way through some short tunnels, we arrive at Caldeirão Verde’s majestic waterfall which forms the caldron. Green, green, and more green would be the most fitting description for this truly beautiful Madeira levada walk. Queimadas walk is one of the more popular walks on the island.
