Madeira – Porto Moniz

Filed under: travel — Tags: , , — mat @ 5:14 pm

People from the south said “don’t go to the north it’s cold and stormy there …” but as soon as we arrived at the Aqua Natura Hotel it was sunny and the view was stunning. On the way we had a hiking trail (PR13) which will lead you through the fairy forest. Sure let’s do so, after my alpine hike the day before it sounded like an easy task, Just 6 km.

It was great to walk the path (even my hamstrings hurt downward…) and it felt really like Frodo will cross the path on the next corner. Way back wasn’t that easy , the last 3 km we walked on the road and in total it was 12 km. Well, recovery hike … ;)

Hotel in Porto Moniz … 4 star eco hotel. And while stepping into the lobby we saw this

Breathtaking view. The Atlantic ocean in front. And from our balcony…

Wow. Breakfast included so we would need only a place for dinner and found via google Armandos Take away, where we had dinner for 20€ , a full plate of meat

Yesterday was for real recovery, no hikes , only reading and relaxing and dinner at the hotel restaurant (we got a 10% voucher)

Today it was time for the last Levada hike, an entry hike the travel guide said. 13 km in total no heights to cross , and two tunnels in the way.
