    Beautiful path, which is usually above the clouds.
    On a cloudy day in Funchal, early on the mountain before the clouds pull up in the afternoon

    For the direct ascent to Pico do Ruivo ideally suited as a starting point. On site is a large and free parking.

    A crazy view of the landscape and when the clouds move over the mountains, it's just beautiful!

    We started from the car park Achada do Teixeira. The way is well developed and to cope with good basic condition.
    You can also reach the summit from Pico do Arieiro, but that's another level of difficulty.

    If it is cloudy on Madeira, you can still enjoy the sun on the Picobello Ruivo.

    The really large car park Achada do Teixeira serves as a starting point for the ascent of the Pico Ruivo. Despite the size you should be there early, because already in the morning the parking lot of the parking lot is full, even in the off season.
    The path begins on paths paved with rubble and only gets worse in a few places.

    As a starting point for motorists very well suited. You can also start from Ilha.

    Spacious parking. The way to Pico Ruivo is also walkable for beginners, condition required. From here masses of people are on the way, especially on the summit is busy.

    Starting point for a tour of Pico Ruivo. From here the easiest climb to the summit. At Achada do Teixeira there is also a mountain hut where you can buy refreshments - be it in liquid or solid form.
    This is also where the road from Santana ends and there are some parking spaces. When the weather is nice, these are soon all occupied!.
