Hello, travelling to Madeira in October young couple with my boyfriend. Trying to organise as much as possible because theres so many things I want to do so looking for a bit of advice.
I really want to go to Pico Arieiro but dont want to do the walk, would just like to head up and enjoy the views for awhile, spend some time in the visitor centre and take plenty photos. I have looked around and there are places offering tours to get up there but this would mean spending alot of time there as its like a bus trip up then hours there while people do the walk.
I am hiring an electric car called city bubbles for one day but with this i was hoping to do nuns valley and the village below and also the cliff top viewpoint along from funchal and i dont think my little electric buble car would make it up to pico ariero as alot of people have said make sure you have a powerful car.
My question is does anyone have any suggestions of who i can get in contact that might offer what i am looking for, like a means of getting up there but only say spending an hour to one hour and half up there then returning. I dont fancy a full day island tour because it means sitting on a bus for ages.
Other days we are planning on doing a fishing trip one day (for the boyfriend) and another day up on cable car / monte / gardens, and then like i said another day with the bubble car doing nuns valley.
