This walk will give you a a more comprehensive idea of the real beauty of this island. Rock formations seem to want to reach the sky like endless sculptures. Throughout the trek the views are simply breathtaking and near Pico Ruivo we pass through the oldest known Heather forest. 

These trees have stood for hundreds of years existing when Zarco arrived on the island. This walk of contrasts is a must for anyone's bucket list!

Pico do Areeiro, Pico Ruivo


With an amazing view, this hike connects two of the highest peaks of Madeira Island: Pico Ruivo (1862m) and Pico do Arieiro (1818m), hiking through the Central Mountain Massif area.

This trail is very uneven therefore physically demanding.

Among the climbs and descents along the trail, there is a steep climb over hundreds of steps carved into the rock as you reach Pico Ruivo, as well as a meticulous descent. This is an excellent trail for nature enthusiasts and for those who seek physical challenges.
