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.
