The surf home

For the Åre Travel Surf /Yoga/ Hike Camp Madeira- 19, we stay in Porto da Cruz, a picturesque village located in the Northeast of the Madeira island, famous for its breathtaking mountain landscapes and its dark volcanic sandy beaches.

Here you can find a monumental, 600m high rock formation called “PenhaD’Aguia”. You can walk through its trails and access some of the most astonishing views.

Full day activity -  hike with picnic lunch and transportation included

Vereda do Areeiro – PR 1
Without a doubt the most beautiful hike of Madeira, Vereda do Areeiro (PR1) connects two of the highest peaks of Madeira – Pico do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo. The Pico Ruivo is the highest point on the mountainous Madeira and standing at 1,862m above sea level the summit provides spectacular views over the entire island.

This trail takes you along the mountain peaks high above the clouds. The mountains here are so steep that you feel like walking on top of the world. The scenery is simply breathtaking!

Difficulty: Moderate/strenuous
Vereda do Arieiro is a strenuous long hike that will take even the most experienced hikers at least 6-8hrs. This route is not for the faint hearted as it traverses steep ridges, passes through tunnels and steep slopes. Biggest challenge: There are lots of stairs and sheer drops, so this is not a hike for those with fear of heights. Also, this hike is not always possible due to the clouds covering the mountain peaks.

We stop halfways for a nice lunch break. 

 It’s an unforgettable experience!

What to pack:
Good Hiking shoes,
hiking poles might come in handy as well,
water,
day backpack with a picnic (provided)
a sweater and a rain jacket,
sun protection
a pocket light or a headlamp for the tunnels.

The scenic route
- a must do

Vereda da Ponta de São Lourenco – PR 8

Vereda da Ponta de São Lourenco is a very different hike from anything else you will experience in Madeira. The trail follows the rocky coastline of the Eastern-most peninsula of Madeira. Along the way you pass many viewpoints with the most unexpected spectacular views behind every corner.

Numbers might make this hike look easy, but don’t be mislead – it’s not a walk in the park. The biggest challenge here is the burning sun (there is no shade at all), strong winds (strong is an understatement – we were literally blown off the path several times), and a constant change in elevation (you go up and then again back down quite a lot). The weather changes constantly; we were hiking in t-shirts and then a few minutes later we needed a sweater and a jacket, and then just a t-shirt again.

If you walk all the way to the end to Ponta do Furado you will be rewarded by the most unique view of Madeira. It’s definitely worth the effort!

Add the spirit
Yoga
 

Enjoy yoga with great views over the blue atlantic sea. Exercise and relaxation. Take a deep breath. Everything is possible - nothing is a must. Relax.
