Það sem verður gert

THIS IS A NEW AND UNIQUE CONCEPT DESIGNED FOR TRAVELERS LOOKING FOR FREEDOM AND TO EXPLORE ON THEIR OWN!

After we pick all guests (up to 8) in their accommodation in Funchal or Caniço (only), we will go to Pico Do Arieiro and you can enjoy the amazing hike to Pico Ruivo, the highest point of the island! Prepare yourself for stunning landscapes! You will walk on your own rhythm through this famous trail and find the challenging "stairs to heaven" and walk "above the clouds" or with the other guests if you choose to. We will pick you all at the ending point to take you back to your accommodation.

The path to do this hike is from Pico Do Arieiro To Pico Ruivo To Achada Do Teixeira (11 km = 4:30 hours in total). Level: Medium-Hard. Is available in 2 different schedules:

- "Sunrise Hike" from around 6:30 am until around 1:30 pm.
- "Morning Hike" from around 10:30 am until around 5:30 pm.

These times are average, not exact. Because the sunrise time changes every day and there is a change of clock twice a year. As you can see above, the total trip, counting the hike and the transportation, is around 7 hours and 30 minutes.

Staðsetning

The hike between Pico Do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo it's the most amazing one of the island! Also the most hidden spot! We will be happy to transport you there! We will take you and pick you, but you have the freedom to walk alone on your own rhythm or with the other guests. It is a safe hike where there are hundreds of other people every day.

Kevin picked us up promptly from our location and transported up into the mountains being very informative during the journey. When we arrived everything was explained about the hike and the pick up times. We did feel a little concerned about the time allowance as we are usually quite slow walkers but it wasn’t a problem as we were back in plenty of time. The hike is spectacular with some amazing scenery as you go between the two peaks. You do need to make sure you are layered up for mountain weather as it was quite cold at sunrise to start with. We even had time for coffee and cake before we were met and picked up to go back to our accommodation. The journey back took us into Santana which Kevin was very informative about showing us the sights as we passed through. All in all if you like an adventurous hike on fairly straight forward but demanding path then this is an ideal way of getting up to the peaks and back.

Amazing hike! I met cool people, and the view is just magical. This is a must-do while spending time in Madeira. If you’re not in good shape, then maybe you should think about it. Otherwise, hike away my friends!

It is more like a transfer service, we were taken to the mountain, given a brief guide and then left to do the hike. Could have been fun if the weather turns super foggy and rainy (i booked the night before and was not notified of this). During the drive Kevin is accomodating and knowledgable, but I would prefer a bit more support, a heads up on weather condition, what to bring and what to expect. When raining the hike is slippery and can be quite challenging for beginners.

Great event! We enjoyed the hike, which is astonishing to say at least. You will *feel* the mountains, 100%. Tunnels are great and a flashlight is a must-have there. As hosts suggested having a winter jacket and LAYERS, LAYERS of clothing is CRUCIAL here especially during WINTER TIME. A cap is also nice as well as light gloves. Some stairs are slippery and steep so be prepared. I would say 1L of water per person is more than enough for this experience (not 2L per person). The only drawback I saw is that we had only 4 hours in total to finish the hike. I would say it was not enough for us to peacefully and slowly enjoy this tremendous hike & mountains.

The pickup was in a timely manner that got us to the mountain top 15 minutes before the sunrise, and what a view! When we got there we were above a layer of clouds and at the exact time Kevin said the sun in the clear horizon. The walk was also incredible, though it was a little cloudy limiting long views the immediate views were stunning. Though there are some steep parts I would say that this walk was fairly easy. Rain jacket/coat is a must, the temperature is significantly lower than at sea level and the cloud are likely to get you wet as it passes, though it didn't rain when we went. Kevin gave us very clear instructions about the walk, but you don't need a map there are very clear sign posts and it will be difficult to go down the wrong path. Kevin was also kind enough to give us a few notes about the area up the mountain as well the surrounding towns.

It’s a really cool trip, over the clouds we enjoyed it a lot. Kevin explained on the ways about places and locations we saw and gave some background infos. He gave us also cool hints for our general stay, a real super pleasure.
