Ribeiro Frio

Not far from Santo da Serra on the northern slopes of the island you will find a very popular starting point for ‘levada’ walks. Ribeiro Frio (cold river) still has much of the original vegetation today. The island was once totally covered with ‘Laurissilva’ forest, a relic from prehistoric times.

Ribeiro Frio’s governmental trout farm is always worth a visit. You can view the hatchery and round off your visit to the local restaurant with a freshly cooked trout or a chouriço sausage grilled on a clay pig on your table!

... If you still have an appetite!
