FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

Pico Ruivo is the highest point of Madeira, it is set at 1818m altitude and is the most visited place on Madeira because of its easy access and incredible views.

This hike together with Eco ramblers takes you to the most interesting spots and secret paths to reach this peak on what is a day full of suprising views, nature and wild life on the wonderful island of Madeira.

The trek Arieiro Pico Pico Ruiva and the Nun’s Valley starts with a transfer to the starting spot by van.

This route requires some fitness and experience in hiking. The distance is 17km long.

If so desired group can end the walk in Santana shortening the route by half and providing a transfer back with the van.
It is necessary to take warm clothes for cold at the top of the mountain and a hat to protect against sun and rain as the weather can change dramatically at that altitude. in the  summer it is warm and in winter cold. There are many microclimates on the island and it can be very hot on the coast and cold or rainy in the highlands.

It’s a beautiful walk in the mountainous centre of the island and one you should indulge in to get a real feel of the nature, habitats and views that the island provides.

We start from Pico Arieiro 3rd highest peak, Pico das Torres We spent the 2nd highest peak and we will go to Ruivo Peak, the highest peak of the island. Then began a descent with many gaps to the mouth of Torrinhas and down to Nun’s Valley a village in the center of the island that seems like a volcano crater but it is not. We visit this town which has its own particular characteristics that make it very unique.

The hike can be done by up to 7 people per van and costs 200 euro per van.
