Tour Details

This is definitely on or our favourite hikes. Waking up early, driving in the dark, under the stars to Pico do Areeiro (1818 mts) and wait for the sun to rise, its a magic and hard experience to describe in words. We at Up Mountain Madeira, are the 1st walking company in Madeira to do this hike in an open regular group, and since 2011 have been seeing the day start from the top of the island, bringing light up to all the island from one of the highest peaks, to then, once it’s warming us up we will start our hike through walking through the Peaks of Madeira, until we reach the summit of the island pico Ruivo 1862 mt. Here the views are stunning, Paying off all that effort we took and making it worth it. We will stop for recharging energies, eat something and head down to be picked up already in the Santana area, and once we will be there we take you to visit one of the genuine Santana traditional houses. 

This is a walk done in the mountain, please make sure you wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and that vertigo, tunnels and tough climbs are not a problem for you! All the extra equipment that you may need, like walking sticks, flashlights, or rain poncho, for example, will be provided by us, if previously asked but still we advise you to wear appropriate, warm and comfortable clothes, and don’t forget to pack your own snack/picnic and water!
