No need to pay for a guide and the bus ride is about 3 euros each way vs 40 Euros by taxi from Funchal. Stunning scenery, good challenging walk that we did round trip including 30 mins lunch in 2 1/2 hours. It was incredibly...More
This "walk" from the car park to the top of the point at the end of the trail and back again is around 8km, its not flat and not for the unfit, its 4km each way with lovely views and at the end of this...More
We did this hike in the weekend and it was amazing. The landscapes are breathtaking, the trails are safe, although there are a couple of turns that seem quite dangerous. If you like hiking, do not miss it.
The most eastern part of Madeira is unspoiled, rocky and without nearly any vegetation. That’s why it is so beautiful. You can see for miles over the ocean and towards the other archipelo islands. There is a souvenir and beverage truck on the parking.
You can go from the public parking place trought on smal way to the last point. During you walk you have strong up and dows but you get also realy nice views to the sea and panoramic. Mostly on the end you can take a...More
We made this out and back trek in under three hours. There was over 1,000 feet of elevation change over the 4.6 mile hike. While most of Madeira is lush and green in late September, this section was green and arid. There were beautiful views...More

A good sticky/grippy sole is the most important thing here- some of the descents are slippery because of loose sand and pebbles. I wore low cut, light weight, water friendly Merrells with a vibram sole for all the hikes we... More
A good sticky/grippy sole is the most important thing here- some of the descents are slippery because of loose sand and pebbles. I wore low cut, light weight, water friendly Merrells with a vibram sole for all the hikes we did, including Pico Areiro-Ruivo. I did fine.
Hi, I am afraid, this is going to be a very tough walk for your father and I would not recommend it. The pathway is very rocky and it may be a real challenge for the ankles and the knees. No shade at all until you reach Casa... More
Hi, I am afraid, this is going to be a very tough walk for your father and I would not recommend it. The pathway is very rocky and it may be a real challenge for the ankles and the knees. No shade at all until you reach Casa do Sardinhas after 3.5 km, no cafe and no facilities like toilets. Just a van selling cold beverages, ice creams and crisps on the parking lot.
Some walks along levadas may definitely be a better alternative.
