I took the longer route with just one tunnel. The other one (Pico Areeiro West) was marked as dangerous, due to an earthquake recently, as I was told. It was a return trip of 6 hours with very mixed conditions. Starting in a surprisingly cold, freezing weather, then some nice and hot sunshine, following with a generally cloudy day, but still with OK visibility on top, and a hailstorm in the end. On Madeira you truly can experience all seasons in one day :)

My first long hike. The weather was not good eneough but me and my boyfriend wanted to do it, so we just simply followed the path. At the end I was exhausted because of the steep ascent back to the start.

Done this easy track with my brother. the hard part was to go through a long tunnel with no light, except at the end ;)

I did this trecking with two friends in one of my trainings for climbing Mont Blanc.

It´s a very nice peak and the highest of Madeira. I climbed so many times that i can't remember since i was born in Madeira.

Beautiful hike along well kept trails. Don't forget a torchlight since you'll have to climb through two tunnels. The peak itself wasn't as nice as the trail towards and from it.
