Pico Ruivo

Highly recommended
This is the highest point of the island of Madeira. Ruivo peak, which climbs to a height of 1,862m, is depicted by slopes planted with trees and giant ferns and offers a stunning sweeping view from its summit. Several paths lead to the refuge; the Pico do Ariero route is the most spectacular but also the longest and really only for experienced hikers.
