The beautiful island of Madeira off the coast of Portugal is an amazing place to explore. Full of natural highlights and the wonderful city of Funchal, it is definitely worth a visit.

On this full day hiking adventure, I would like to guide you on an amazing journey that will take you from the Pico Arieiro (1,818m) to the Pico Ruivo (1,862m), which is the highest point in Madeira.

During the hike, you will get to enjoy tremendous views. And the higher we go, the better the views will get. You will even get to gaze out far into the ocean’s sensational blue water.

A wonderful nature hike, this trek will allow you to immerse yourself in the lush beauty of Madeira. You will get to see countless types of flora and fauna, as well as any wild life that may decide to pop out. Furthermore, because we will be trekking at a casual pace, you will get plenty of time to take in and appreciate every aspect of the region we will be exploring.

Due to the leisurely pace of the trip, you do not have to worry about having any technical experience. Instead, you just have to be in good enough physical condition to maintain the pace of the hike.

Trekking through volcanic peaks on a gorgeous island is a dream for a lot of people. And if that dream is yours, send us a request and let us make it come true on the Portuguese island of Madeira. We would be happy to take you to its highest point!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
