A bit of a drive but a great way to get a feel of how picturesque Madeira is and the views at the top are awesome.

Beautiful landscapes. Better arrive early in the morning, when the visibility is better and the sky is clear.

The view offers sone great photo opportunities, definitely worth the trek to the top of the mountain. ⛰

Pico do Areeiro is the biggest mountain of Madeira Island, and one of the biggest of Portugal
The view from the top is absolutely amazing, a well as, the climbing by car
Hiking is well implemented, but we didn’t try it due to our small kids
Biking is also well implemented, with local business covering ENDURO
Enjoy!

The views from the top are truly spectacular. We were above the cloud line and it was bdistinctly chilly - although the tomato soup in the cafe warmed us up! Getting up here and back down is an exhilarating trip and can take years off you!
