    Absolutely gigantic tour. Should anyone who has been to Madeira. Attention: a head for heights should be a requirement!

    Probably the royal tour in Madeira. Rugged, barren, paths crouched on the slope and led through tunnels (unlit) - it couldn't be rougher in the alpine environment. The contrast between sea and mountains is very clear here. You should be free from giddiness and the very high steps should not be underestimated. Refreshments often closed and no opportunity to shorten.

    Great landscape and great adventurous path. Take water and provisions with you, the hut was closed!

    The hike from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo is one of the most spectacular, if not THE most spectacular hike in all of Madeira.
    The hike is quite demanding and, because of the many meters in altitude, a certain basic level of fitness is essential; Surefootedness, a head for heights and good footwear are mandatory. There is no shortcut on the way.
    Who does the tour there and back: the last kilometers on the way back to Pico do Arieiro are really hard again.

    One, if not the most beautiful hiking section on our multi-day Madeira hike. Given the weather we had and the low frequency, goose bumps are guaranteed.

    This tour shouldn't be underestimated, especially if you want to get there and back again. I see a basic level of fitness, surefootedness, sufficient water, sensible shoes and clothing as well as something to eat as a prerequisite.

    Not for nothing one of the most popular routes in Madeira, but don't underestimate it
