After I pick you in your accommodation in Funchal, 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". I will pick you at the ending point to take you back to your accommodation. There are two paths to do this hike: 1) From Pico Do Arieiro To Pico Ruivo To Achada Do Teixeira (8 km = 4:30 hours in total). Level: Medium-Hard. - "Sunrise Hike" from Monday to Saturday. From around 7 am until around 2 pm. - "Morning Hike" from Monday to Saturday.

Pick-up & drop-off
The hike between Pico Do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo it's the most amazing one of the island! Also the most hidden spot! I will be happy to transport you there! I 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. You can also find in my profile the best Levada walks: 25 Fountains and Caldeirão Verde.
Please, after you book, let me know the name and address of your accommodation. I will send your exact pick-up time and details one day before the trip.
