Don´t stop on Pico do Ariero only ... when you would absorb amazing and wild sceneries go ahead to Pico do Ruivo ... Sure, this trip is one of the most difficult of trails of Madeira and it asks good personal condition and sunny forecast....More

Trekked from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo. A truly great experience with fantastic views over dizzying heights as you wander along narrow pathways and through ancient tunnels to get to the summit of Madeira's highest mountain.

Best mountain views in the whole island and a scenic hike through ridge paths and tunnels. A lot of climbing but the path and steps are maintained and well preserved.

We came here as part of the East tour. The views are stunning. It feels strange to be higher than the clouds.

Were here in March 2018, two times. Depending how the weather is, the views are great. For walkers also a good place to walk. On top there is a restaurant you can visit. Wheelchair accesable.

You might not have known what Pico do Areeiro was like 5-10 years ago, but it was a lot cosier and less commercial. Nowadays, the souvenir shop has absurd prices, do not buy anything from there, everything is twice as expensive as if you would...More

We have visited many times and it can be extremely busy with very limited parking. We like to arrive as early in the morning as we cqn. There are good walks from the top most of which are very rough underfoot and quite strenuous. Good...More

Yes, we rent a car. Yes , it’s an easy drive, and yes, the roads are safe, for the most part. There are some very steep parts (not to Pico though) that can be daunting... Hope this helps.

I got it on my GPS (Garmin loaded with free OpenStreetMap navigational map) by just searching for "Pico do Arieiro" as point of interest.
