Rising steep and rocky from the Atlantic Ocean, Madeira is a compact and mountainous island. Criss-crossed by a network of old paths and tracks, it is remarkably accessible and scenic. Enjoying a sub-tropical climate, it is suitable for year-round walking. As a result of volcanic activity it can be steep, but high ridges and the cliffs of its Atlantic coast are always in view. Water is conveyed around the island in flower-fringed lavadas, their banks offering anything from a gentle stroll to an exposed cliff walk. There are wooded valleys, rocky slopes, cultivated terraces and impressive cliffs to explore. The people are unfailingly friendly. The wine is excellent. This guidebook includes a rich and varied selection of walks on Madeira, and also covers the neighbouring island of Porto Santo.
