Yet another very special tour! ​ Our number one spot, just as the sunrise tour, is Pico do Areiro, the third highest peak on the island. ​ This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the high peak without the big crowds of the morning and early afternoon tour groups. ​ The peak comes alive at dawn. The colours are something of a dream and even the air is different. Watching the sun set above the clouds is a truly unique experience! ​ There are plan b´s for bad weather, thankfully we have been graced with many epic sunset spots in Madeira. ​ On our way back down into the city we will also be stopping at a viewpoint to see Funchal by night, with all the lights and the moon shining on the ocean. ​ A very romantic and quiet tour, a must do for all photographers!

This is it! This walk will give you a fuller idea of the real beauty of this island. Rock formations seem to want to reach the sky like endless sculptures. Along the way the views are simply breathtaking. Numerous plants have their habitat here, and it is to see them dress proudly in a multitude of colors in small flowers for all to see. Near Pico Ruivo we pass through the oldest heather forest. These old trees count for hundreds of years already and they already existed when Zarco arrived at the Island. From here to Pico Ruivo (the highest peak on the island) is just a step away - take advantage and dazzle yourself with magnificent views of the island. A fascinating walk through breathtaking landscapes designed for true explorers!

Pico Do Arieiro / Pico Ruivo

Pico Do Arieiro / Pico Ruivo

star-5

With a wonderful view, this trail has the peculiarity of connecting two of the highest peaks of Madeira Island, the Pico Ruivo (1862m) and the Pico do Arieiro (1818m), traveling to that part of the area of the Central Mountain Massif. This course will be quite uneven, so some physical effort will be required. Between some ascents and descents, it is important to arrive at Pico ruivo where you will find a steep ascent along hundreds of steps carved inside the rock and a meticulous descent. This is a suitable trail for lovers of flora and fauna and physical challenges. It is recommended the use of walking stick, suitable footwear, water (2l) and waterproof.
