Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web
Depending on the weather conditions, from Pico do Arieiro you can either see endless chasms cutting through red and green colored hills or a soft carpet of white clouds rolling beneath your feet. With a height of 1,818 m (5,965 ft), the peak is the highest spot on Madeira. Even though it requires hiking and climbing long trails, 1,000 people on average visit the site every day. Dress comfortably, take water with you, and let the well-built stone pathway lead you through forests and tunnels to the top.

  • We were lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy the wonderful views. You can also partially or completely make the walks and then enjoy a nice beer on the terrace.

  • Splendid contrast of sea level and 1800 m above it. You have the feeling that you are above the clouds, with breathtaking 360 degree view on valleys around you. Definitive must see on Madeira island. 
  • Nature in its pure State. The view is truly magnificent and unobstructed (prefer the morning). Well preserved site. Remember to take a jacket all the same!
