Every island thrives on its clichés. The name Madeira stands for a heavy drop of wine which might have had its time a long time ago, yet is still praised by many a connoisseur. The island’s all-year-round mild climate helped Madeira be awarded the decorative suffix »floating floral island in the Atlantic«. Bird of paradise and torch lilies, daisies and hydrangea leave no doubt: Madeira is rich in flowers like no other island. And secretly the Atlantic beauty has developed into a hiking paradise of the special kind. The first Portuguese word which hikers learn on Madeira is bound to be »levada«. Levada hiking is surely unique on the whole world. A sophisticated network of narrow irrigation canals runs across the entire island. The maintenance paths installed next to canal trenches allow the convenient discovery of Madeira without great altitude all the way to the most remote corners. Around half of the tours introduced in this guide are Levada excursions. They lead through fertile land cultivating sugar cane, bananas, vine and exotic fruit, past artistic terraces modelled into the island’s rugged topography, which awaken associations of Bali or the Philippines. Rushing cascades and impressive ravines are found equally by the wayside as are rough, declining cliffs and marshy high-moor bogs. The still natural valley to the north of the island offers a sumptuous evergreen subtropical vegetation comprising fern meadows, lauraceae forests and heather shrubs that convey the feeling of walking through an emerald green tunnel. With all the fascination for the Levada paths it should not be forgotten that the volcano island also is a fabulous territory for mountaineers. The nearly 1900 m high central massive holds routes for all demands. Very alpine is the triple summit tour from the Arieiro over the Torres to the Pico Ruivo. The stretch, which has been spectacularly chiselled into the rock, can justifiably be considered the tour of kings. Next to various shepherd paths and adventurous coastal ascents there are so-called »veredas«, i.e. old paths linking villages, which used to be the sole access to remote locations until a few decades ago only, crossing valleys deep and mountains high. A typical feature are the rounded steps of the paved paths –lovingly called »ox hoof plaster« by local Madeirans.

E-Book zur 7. komplett überarbeiteten und aktualisierten Auflage 2018 Keine Frage, die "Blumeninsel im Atlantik" eignet sich phantastisch für einen ausgedehnten Wanderurlaub inmitten unberührter Natur. Dunkelgrün schimmern die üppigen Lorbeerwälder, dazwischen weiße und rote Hortensien- und Azaleenblüten, dick wie Pompons. Wer hier Ferien macht, wird die vergleichsweise kargen Mittelmeerinseln schnell vergessen und sich flugs zu der einen oder anderen von insgesamt 15 Touren aufmachen, die die Autorin Irene Börjes in ihrem Reiseführer detailliert beschreibt. Als Verschnaufpause bieten sich unter anderem ein Streifzug durch die hübsche Inselhauptstadt Funchal an oder der Ein- oder Mehrtagestrip zur Nachbarinsel Porto Santo mit ihrem neun Kilometer langen, weißgoldenen Sandstrand. Dazu ein ganzer Sack voll reisepraktischer Informationen, damit man weiß, wie man am komfortabelsten anreist, wo man am besten übernachtet oder mit welchen kulinarischen Genüssen man sich für die nächste Wanderung stärken kann.

Strelitzien, Fackellilien, Liebesblumen und Hortensien – Madeira zeichnet sich durch ein ganzjährig mildes Klima und eine verschwenderische Blütenpracht aus. Die atlantische Schönheit ist ein Paradies für Wanderer. 60 abwechslungsreiche Levada- und Bergwanderungen stellt der Rother Wanderführer »Madeira« vor. Schmale Bewässerungskanäle, Levadas genannt, durchziehen die gesamte Insel. Auf ihren Wartungswegen lässt sich Madeira ohne große Höhenunterschiede entdecken: vorbei an kunstvoll angelegten Terrassen, durch eindrucksvolle Schluchten und in ursprüngliche Täler mit immergrüner subtropischer Vegetation. Auch alpine Wanderrouten hält die Vulkaninsel mit seinem fast 1900 Meter hohen Zentralmassiv bereit. Spektakulär ist die in den Fels geschlagene Strecke vom Pico do Arieiro hinauf zum Pico Ruivo – die Königstour der Insel. Gemütlich sind die verschwiegenen Hirtenpfade und die »veredas«, alte Dorfverbindungswege, die bis vor wenigen Jahrzehnten den einzigen Zugang zu abgeschiedenen Ortschaften darstellten. Der Autor Rolf Goetz, seit vielen Jahren auf Madeira zu Fuß unterwegs, hat für den Rother Wanderführer »Madeira« die schönsten Wanderungen auf der Insel ausgewählt. Das Spektrum reicht von kurzen und leichten Wegen bis zu anspruchsvollen Gipfelanstiegen. Jeder Tourenvorschlag verfügt über eine übersichtliche Kurzinfo, eine ausführliche Wegbeschreibung, einen Kartenausschnitt mit eingezeichnetem Routenverlauf und ein aussagekräftiges Höhenprofil. Zahlreiche Fotos stimmen auf den Wanderurlaub auf Europas Blumeninsel ein. GPS-Daten stehen zum Download bereit.

Portugal's maritime power in the 16C, coupled with the abundant resources of gold from its overseas colonies, resulted in the construction of sumptuous monuments which are as much an attraction to visitors as its brightly coloured fishing ports, typical markets, exquisite azulejos, and the warm, friendly character of its people.
