Það sem verður gert

Conquering the summit of Pico Grande at 1654 m, is defnetly the hiking challenge of Madeira. It's simply the best 360º view of the Island! We'll meet at 7 AM at the bus station by the old town Funchal. Local bus to the crater of Nun's Valley around 7:25, it's a classic ride during 50 minutes. Once inside the crater our journey begins at 650 meters high. During our first 2 hours climb, our landscape will at least change 3 times, firstly the Eucalipthus, then the chestnuts and finally arriving at the Col of Boca do Cerro at 1255 meters we'll have a clear view of the whole Valley. We'll eat relax a bit and admire at west the Encumeada Valley, the ”only that divides Madeira in 2 halfs". With our energies recharged we continue our climb, 10 minutes of a bit more narrow path and then in front of us, we will see our goal, the Majestic Pico Grande. 40 more minutes of physical effort and we are there. The 15 meters rope climb is not for all. Each one makes its decision. Lunch Break. After admiring the best Mountain views of the central massif of Madeira its time to go down.The first 45 minutes of descent are a bit rocky and then 2 hours of normal trek, getting out of the valley going south. We will finally reach back to civilisation at the village of Jardim da Serra, where the local bus will take us back to Funchal (last bus 17:00)
Other things to note
Hike during 6 hours, with an elevation gain of 1000 metres, some hiking experience is required, is the same dificulty of parking your car in Pico do Areeiro, go to Pico Ruivo and come back to Pico do Areeiro. The view at Pico Grande can be one of the best souvenirs of Madeira ;)

Hello, my name is Pedro, I was born and raised in this Atlantic Pearl called Madeira. I'm a Certified Mountain Guide since 2014 and Madeira is my life. The unique brutality of its geography, The Climate, The Flowers and The People make this Island so magic. Guiding and hiking throughout the Universe of Walking Trails and Levadas is my Job, and I Love it! On this 800km ² Island there are more than 3000 different species of plants, can you imagine?! For the last 6 years I've been sharing the interesting facts about the history of this place and taking people to its wildest corners like Pico Grande.I'm fluent in English,French and Portuguese, i also speak Spanish and a bit German.When i'm not guiding either i'm with the family ,or farming my organic bananas or in the Ocean another very important element of this Island. Let's go Hiking

This was an amazing hiking experience. It was physically fairly demanding, but the scenery was genuinely breathtaking and having such a knowledgable, friendly and fun guide made the day really special. If you’re up for a bit of a challenge and want to see the most dramatic scenery in Madeira, I’d highly recommend this trip. Thanks Pedro!

Challenging hike just like expected. But worth every step to reach Pico Grande’s summit: the view is breathtaking! Pedro is very professional and has a lot of knowledge about Madeira. I felt like I was in best hands all the way through. Thank you for amazing experience and outstanding company. See you soon!

If there was a one time opportunity on AirBnB to give six stars, I would give it to Pedro without any hesitation. Literally everything was perfect! He is an amazing guide. Even if you don’t have enough experience for this track he will explain to you everything in a way all your worries will fade away. He has endless knowledge about local fauna and flora which he will share with every opportunity. The track is simply the best I had so far in Madeira and I did some of the top rated already. One remark - if you’re afraid of heights or have zero experience in the mountains look somewhere else. This track is really demanding physically and mentally but very rewarding as well! I highly recommend Pedro to anyone who wants to really experience Madeira’s mountain tracks.

Aujourd’hui randonnée avec Pedro direction le Pico Grande. Rendez-vous à 6h20 et prise de contact avec Pedro dans le bus en direction de notre superbe journée de marche. Pedro a su nous faire partager son amour pour son île et ses connaissances sur la végétation. Nous avons passé une journée formidable en sa compagnie et avons fini avec une belle surprise mais nous n’en dirons pas plus..... Nous conseillons à 1000% cette belle aventure 😀

Pedro is an amazing mountain guide who possesses excellent geographical, botanical and historical knowledge that he will share with you as you climb Pico Grandes more challenging routes, it’s definitely a bit of work and requires basic hiking experience but you are rewarded with amazing views of the island and surrounding peaks! I would highly recommend this hike for anyone looking for a challenge and experience direct from a local mountain guide who is easy going and fun to hike with.
