Santana Vertical Kilometer

4.8km 1003D+

The Santana Vertical Kilometer® (SVK) race starts near the Vale da Lapa area at an altitude of about 780m, in the heart of the Laurissilva forest, a natural world heritage site.

 

The entire route takes place in the Madeira Natural Park area, in protected ecosystems that form part of the ecological network called Natura 2000 Network, whose objective is to help ensure biodiversity through the conservation of natural habitats and wild fauna and flora in the territory of the European Union.

 

The final part of the trail consists of a very technical and demanding climb which culminates at an emblematic point called Encumeada Alta (1785m), in the Central Mountainous Massif, from where you can enjoy superb panoramic views of the island’s highest peaks.

The trail is 4.8 kilometres long with a positive climbing level of 1003m, where participants can contemplate the splendid and particular views of the island of Madeira and feel the most beautiful things nature has to offer.
