After a worthwhile detour to the lookout point dos Balcões, from where you have a wonderful view of the mountains of Madeira, you return to the Levada do Furado (trout levada).
We walk through lush vegetation and dense 'Laurissilva' forest. Again and again we have wonderful views of deep gorges and valleys in the area. At the end of the hike it goes to the Parque Ribeira Primeira. A trout couldn't be fresher!
