Grade 3 - Challenging

Larano - Boca do Risco

The beginning of the trail is accessible to anyone and offers magnificent perspectives over Machico until you reach the Viewpoint of Boca do Risco, which offers a breath-taking view of the north coast of the island.

From here towards the Porto da Cruz the difficulty of the path is harder. The trail is made by the hillside overlooking the vast Atlantic Ocean, in a narrow path with no protection, so it is recommended only for experienced hikers.


Along the way, take some time to enjoy the sights and all the surrounding of this walk. Once you reach Porto da Cruz you can relax for a while and get to know this location of the island, full of unique cultures and traditions.
