A short sail to Madeira and we made a base at the east end of the island (Quinta do Lorde Marina) and hired a car to explore the volcanic hills that tower up from the sea. There are great walks enabled by the Levada routes, drainage channels made 300 years ago to take water from the highlands to the rain-shadow south coast. The engineering feats of carving these through dense rocks, steep mountain slopes with only hand tools makes the mind boggle! We recommend PR10, even Felix managed the 11km walk!!
