Overview
This is it! This walk will give you a fuller idea of the real beauty of this island. Rock formations seem to want to reach the sky like endless sculptures. Along the way the views are simply breathtaking. Numerous plants have their habitat here, and it is to see them dress proudly in a multitude of colors in small flowers for all to see. Near Pico Ruivo we pass through the oldest heather forest. These old trees count for hundreds of years already and they already existed when Zarco arrived at the Island. From here to Pico Ruivo (the highest peak on the island) is just a step away - take advantage and dazzle yourself with magnificent views of the island. A fascinating walk through breathtaking landscapes designed for true explorers!

I was picked up outside my hotel as agreed and we set off to Pico Arieiro. However, when we got to the top, the weather was too bad to we had to head down an alternative route. it was a real shame that we couldn't climb the peak, although we did walk through another woodland

****Unforgettable, a must do ***** the only thing is the advert was saying the hike is in small groups, which wasn’t, as that’s the reason I’ve paid more is to go with less people. But at the end it wasn’t a big problem
