This is only the third highest mountain in Madeira but it's the one with the best views and most popular amongst the tourists. The views are truly breathtaking so make sure to save some time to enjoy it!

The views at the top make the long journey up well worth it. We love beaches but we also like hiking and mountain views, so the island provided both in abundance, this place is really special. The cafe at the top was also pretty good!

The third highest peak on the island and definitely one of the most popular. You can take the hike all the way from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo, where you'll be greeted with a plethora of breathtaking views that are revealed around every turn.

The hike to Pico Ruivo is more strenuous if you're not in good physical condition, but even taking a short walk from the Arieiro will be worth the views

Located at 1818 meters of altitude, Pico do Areeiro offers one of the most memorable landscapes of Madeira. If weather allows, you can walk to the highest peak of the island (Pico Ruivo) and see the brightest blue skies, above the clouds.

Pico do Arieiro ist mit 1.818 m einer der höchsten Gipfel der Insel Madeira. An den meisten Tage können Besucher quasi auf oder über den Wolken stehen und auf diese vom Gipfel herabschauen. Die höchsten Spitzen Madeiras schauen häufig imposant aus der Wolkendecke heraus. Die Luft hier oben ist frisch und klar und die Sonne scheint so gut wie täglich. An guten Tagen kann man sogar die Nachbarinsel Porto Santo, 25 Kilometer nordöstlich, sehen. Mehrere Wanderwege führen auf den Pico Arieiro. Ein gut erreichbarerParkplatz befindet sich in der Nähe von wo aus es etwa ein ein-stündiger Spaziergang zur Spitze ist.

Madeira è un'isola prevalentemente montagnosa. E il Pico do Ariero, proprio nel centro, è una delle sua vette più caratteristiche. L'ideale è arrivarci per vedere l'alba, e poi cominciare il saliscendi sul crinale per raggiungere poi il Pico Ruivo, che è la montagna più alta.
