The madeira Challenging walk starts on the 3rd highest Peak Arieiro (1810mts) up to Ruivo Peak (1862mts), the highest on the island of Madeira.

Just before Ruivo Peak, ancient heather trees that are many hundreds of years and were already there when Zarco landed on the island.

Passing through small tunnels we arrive at Peak Ruivo; After a break, surrounded by an usual landscape we start making our way slowly down to Achada do Teixeira.
