A Sunrise Hike to Pico Ruivo, Madeira Island’s Highest Peak

This tour is ideal for couples, photographers and hikers!

Vereda do Pico Ruivo is the path that takes us to Pico Ruivo, the highest peak on the island of Madeira with 1862m above sea level. It lasts approximately 45 minutes.
We are often above the clouds, and seeing the sun rise between them, with those wonderful colors, gives us a breathtaking feeling! It is an experience that we only have once in a lifetime. Worth it!

Right after, we follow the Vereda do Areeiro, the path between Pico do Areeiro to Pico Ruivo, where we can take incredible photos and observe the highest peaks, as well as the valleys and villages below. The fauna and flora are unique and there is still the possibility to observe different species of birds, depending on the season!

It is an 11km walk and is considered difficult because it has many stairs and inclines.
