About this activity

This is a medium level 17km run and we'll start at the sand beach of Machico, where we'll climb til Pico do Facho.
We continue through Levada do Caniçal to Boca do Risco, and climb up to Pico das Roçadas, where you can find an excellent view over the coastal cliffs of the north and Porto Santo island.
