ABOUT THE TOUR
This run starts at Fanal’s Support house and will take the Fanal trail towards Estanquinhos, located way up at the Paul the Serra plateau. This single track trail crosses Madeira Laurel and Heather Forest, protected species of the Laurssilva Forest.
It’s a constant up and down run, challenging at times and most of all it’s filled with amazing views over Ribeira da Janela’s Valley, the longest in the island with a total extension of 13Kms. After 15Kms of run we start a smooth descent towards Levada dos Cedros across an Heather forest. Through the wodden steps downhill section, we’ll reach the levada and find the gorgeous green waterfall, where we will make our first stop. We start our ascent ending up at this green field of Stinky Laurells, usually populated with herding cows.
