Sunset in Madeira

Today we have the last picture from Madeira. How did you like this island? Were you surprised by something in Madeira? Would you consider holidays in Madeira?

I think it’s a nice island with pleasant climate, and many unique attractions like flowers, levadas, toboggans, whale and dolphin watching, hiking, and more. 馃檪

Mam bardzo pozytywne wspomnienia z Madery i dla mnie to zawsze b臋dzie wyspa kwiat贸w oraz lewad. 馃檪

Madeira – trees

During a walk from Ribeiro Frio you’ll see different plants and birds. You can also enjoy the view of mountains, if the weather allows…

As I mentioned before, we went to Madeira in December, thus it wasn’t extra sunny. 馃槈 However, we could really enjoy nature without crowds! One place was full of little birds flying around us, it was really lovely!

W trakcie w臋dr贸wek z Ribeiro Frio widzieli艣my r贸偶ne ro艣liny i ptaszki. Pewnie g艂贸wn膮 atrakcj膮 s膮 g贸ry, jednak mg艂a stan臋艂a nam na przeszkodzie aby cieszy膰 si臋 tym widokiem鈥

Jak wcze艣niej pisa艂am, byli艣my na Maderze w grudniu, i zdecydowanie nie jest to najbardziej s艂oneczny okres. Jednak, podczas ca艂ego pobytu, mieli艣my t膮 cudn膮 przyrod臋 tylko dla siebie, bez t艂umu turyst贸w, co zdecydowanie jest zalet膮!

Madeira – Ribeiro Frio

In Ribeiro Frio, you’ll find a few easy hikes. One of them is to Vereda dos Balcoes (posts from 24 – 26 November 2015). The other is to a trout farm. Because the day was very foggy, we decided to do a few short hikes. It was a good choice, however it has to be much more beautiful on a sunny day.

__________________________________________________________

Z Ribeiro Frio prowadzi kilka 艂atwych szlak贸w na kr贸tkie wycieczki. Jeden z nich, do Vereda dos Balcoes, pokaza艂am Wam kilka dni temu (24 鈥 26 listopad 2015). Inny prowadzi do hodowli pstr膮g贸w. Z racji, 偶e ten dzie艅 by艂 bardzo zamglony, wybrali艣my tego typu w臋dr贸wki. To bardzo sympatyczne miejsca, jednak w s艂o艅cu prezentuj膮 si臋 zdecydowanie lepiej.

Faial is a small picturesque village in Madeira; it’s lovely located, with plenty opportunities for taking pictures. Today you can see cannons in the old fortress in Faial.

Madeira – Vereda dos Balcoes

The final point of the Vereda dos Balcoes is a “balcony” – a viewpoint from where you can see green valley and mountains. Well, we’re quite unlucky with the weather that day, because the visibility was basically zero… It’s very foggy. We could only take pictures of nearby trees and playful birds. 馃檪

__________________________________________________________

Cel w臋dr贸wki Vereda dos Balcoes, jak nazwa wskazuje, to 鈥瀊alkon鈥 鈥 punkt widokowy. Niestety ten dzie艅 by艂 wyj膮tkowo mglisty i widoczno艣膰 by艂a zerowa. Mam takie 艣mieszne zdj臋cia ludzi stoj膮cych przy kraw臋dzi 鈥瀊alkonu鈥 i fotografuj膮cych widoki, kt贸re niestety by艂y jedn膮, wielk膮, bia艂膮 plam膮. 馃槈

Mimo, 偶e bez widoku na g贸ry, spacer nie by艂 stracony! A bia艂e (mgliste) t艂o dodawa艂o kontrastu zdj臋ciom ptak贸w i drzew.

Madeira – Levada in Vereda dos Balcoes

Today, you can see another example of levada. Hiking on levada paths can be very easy and relaxing (like today’s photo, levada in Vereda dos Balcoes), but some of them are very narrow (compare post from 23rd of November 2015) and may be very slippery.

While being in Madeira, try to do levada hikes. I think it’s something really special.

__________________________________________________________

Na dzisiejszym zdj臋ciu widzicie kolejny przyk艂ad lewady. Spacer wzd艂u偶 lewady mo偶e by膰 bardzo odpr臋偶aj膮cy, jak dzisiejszy przyk艂ad lewady Vereda dos Balcoes. Jednak niekt贸re lewady bywaj膮 bardzo w膮skie i 艣liskie, wi臋c taka w臋dr贸wka wymaga wi臋cej skupienia; por贸wnajcie zdj臋cie z 23 listopada 鈥 tamta lewada jest znacznie w臋偶sza.

Madeira – Vereda dos Balcoes

Vereda dos Balcoes offers a nice short walk, of the distance of 1.5 km one way. Shortly after we started this walk, we saw a pub (bar) from the picture. It looked quite old and closed, but at least we’re sure it’s a correct path. 馃槈

__________________________________________________________

Vereda dos Balcoes to kolejne miejsce na spacer. To bardzo prosta trasa, kt贸ra nadaje si臋 dla ka偶dego, a jej d艂ugo艣膰 to zaledwie 1,5 km w jedn膮 stron臋.

Na dzisiejszym zdj臋ciu widzicie taki oto 鈥瀊ar鈥, kt贸ry upewnia nas, 偶e wybrali艣my w艂a艣ciw膮 艣cie偶k臋. 馃槈

Madeira – Levada

Paul da Serra is also a starting point of many paths and levada walks. “Levada” is an important word in Madeira and its huge attraction! While being in Madeira, it’s a must to do at least one of levada walks! 馃檪

A levada is an irrigation channel in Madeira, that distributes water from the wet regions to the drier ones. First levadas were build in the 16th century, and today are about 2200 km of levadas.

__________________________________________________________

Poprzez dzisiejsze zdj臋cie, w ko艅cu pokazuj臋 Wam jedn膮 z wi臋kszych atrakcji turystycznych Madery, kt贸r膮 s膮 lewady.

Lewada to kana艂 irygacyjny na Maderze, kt贸ry s艂u偶y do transportowania wody deszczowej z obszar贸w wilgotnych do suchych. Pierwsze lewady zosta艂y zbudowane w XVI wieku, a obecnie ca艂kowita ich d艂ugo艣膰 wynosi oko艂o 2200 km.

B臋d膮c na Maderze koniecznie wybierzcie si臋 na spacer wzd艂u偶 lewady. P艂askowy偶 Paul da Serra jest jedn膮 z mo偶liwych opcji, gdy偶 jest kojarzony jako pocz膮tek kilku tras wzd艂u偶 lewad.

The other nice walk in Madeira can be done in Paul da Serra plateau. It’s located a bit higher than Ponta de Sao Lourenco (earlier posts), around 1400 m above sea level, and the landscape is totally different.
