Sunrise Hike

Mondays and Thursdays

Ponta de Sao Lourenço is one of the most popular attractions in Madeira and the absolute best way to really appreciate this hike is by avoiding the crowds.

Known for its beautiful colours and rock formations, the volcanic peninsular is one of the oldest parts of the island. 

The peninsula is classified as a partial natural reserve.

All the land and sea by the North coast, is part of the European network of important community sites - Natura 2000.

You can witness very unique fauna and flora on this side of the island, endemic birds and on the very rare occasion, a visit from the world´ s rarest seal, the monk seal.

At the end of the trail, you can dive in the Sardinha port a great place for a swim in some of the cleanest water!

The hike involves some ascends and descends and is considered Moderate difficulty with a total of 8Km more or less which should take around 4 hours in total to complete.

"Amazing experience with a great company! Jeff my guide, and the company owner was awesome! 

Despite the clouds affecting the chance to see a beautiful sunrise, it was still magical to go to an off the beaten path location to sit and watch from a beautiful vista. So serene. 
After the sunrise, it was off to do the amazing hike to Ponta de Sao Lourenço. Being that this tour starts early, you get to experience this amazing hike before the crowds of tourists arrive! We were pretty much the only hikers out there !! Having the trail to yourself just adds to the beauty and overall experience! 

I highly recommend the Sunrise Hike, and Hit the Road Tours! Thanks again Jeff for this amazing experience!!"
