  • On trip advisor you can find a company called 'Green Devil Safari . They are brilliant. We visited Pico do Arieiro with them on a day 4x4 safari. I can not recommend them or the place enough.  more »
  • I went up twice (once on a tour, once to start the hike to Pico Ruivo) and the views are amazing, especially when the clouds roll in below you.  more »
  • Well-developed road on which you can ride to the top. The view is really breathtaking. Tip top
