Explore the most popular waterfall trails in Portugal with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Hiked the trail during foggy/misty weather. Great scenery! Due to the wet terrain, some of the rocky parts of the trail were slippery and this slowed our progress A LOT. Estimated time for the hike was 4 hours in these conditions.

Did this trail in May ‘18- it was nice and easy as far as terrain goes. Most of it is in a road with a few steep inclines/declines.

When we tried to find the trail Levada da Norte, that passes under the ER105 near Boca da Encumeada (we didn't realised that until some french people told us with better informations then our map), we decided to go to Levada da Serra and it was super beautiful! There were a lot of rocks that fell down and waterfalls that end up on the actual trail (so prepare to get wet), but it is a really nice little climb to get to the the plateau: at the end to the levada da Serra you will switch on Bica da Cana trail to get to the Plateau where you'll see the "Parques Eolicos do Paul da Serra", which is really nice and flat ^^... for once!

a beautiful hike. the waterfall was beautiful

Sfortunatamente ho solo camminato un paio di miglia prima di arrendermi . La quantità di acqua lungo i piccoli tunnel era impossibile da guadare con normali scarpe da trekking.
Peccato perché questo Trail è stupendo e vorrei riprovare ancora appena possibile .

Interesting levada which changes scenery a couple of times. Starts with an open farmland valley and eventually goes into more dense and lust vegetation. Has a nice little picnic zone next to a tiny lake and waterfall and later on the bigger waterfall is very pretty. Some parts of the last section through Levada Nova are not protected so beware.

We actually went with a guide to this waterfall. Very steep dirt road to get to it. Sadly there is some kind of electrical building right at the base of the waterfall that makes significant noise, so the ambience is ruined by it. However the waterfall is pretty and there's a small area for swimming. Just doesn't feel as remote and rural as you'd hope.
