ABOUT THE TOUR

This running tour begins at Porto da Cruz, a lovable seashore village on the north side of the island. We start with a challenging climb in a single track, heading to Levada do Furado. It’s about 6Km and 900 m D+.

Reaching Levada do Furado, we follow the levada path towards Ribeiro Frio. This lovely levada will give us direct contact with Laurissilva Forest – UNESCO Human Heritage.

From Ribeiro Frio until we reach at Poiso, we have yet another demanding but beautiful climb with some 500m D+.

With its 1400m of altitude, Poiso will be the highest altitude we’re going to be in this adventure.

Following the technical downhill trails, we reach Portela’s viewpoint. A spectacular viewpoint high above Porto da Cruz.

This training ground last section takes us to Funduras inside an amazing green forest with tree covered single tracks. After that, we’re 3 Km’s away from getting again to Porto da Cruz, on a cool run by the seashore.
