The Pico do Arieiro is with its altitude of 1818 meters the third highest peak on the island of Madeira. It can be reached easily by car and from here you can walk 10 extremely spectacular kilometers to Madeira's highest mountain, the 1862 meters high Pico Ruivo, that is ... if you're not afraid of heights!
When we left by car towards Pico do Arieiro the weather was heavily clouded in Santo da Serra. With our car we drove through the clouds and later on we saw them below us, which gave a spectacular view! After a 40 minutes drive we reached the Pico do Arieiro car Posado with its car park, bar, restaurant and accomodation. It was about 9 o'clock in the morning and we only met a French couple.
