Peaks, Nun’s Valley & South Coast
Heading towards Santana in our Jeep Safari, we begin by hiking towards the highest peak of Madeira Island (Pico Ruivo), starting at Achada do Teixeira with an average duration of 1 hour. At arrival watching the sunrise, famously known worldwide, it is simply spectacular. We still remember the first time we had this experience, being on the clouds with the sunrise, it was unforgettable and unique. It is amazing to be in the center of everything and to be able see the island around you.
Afterwards we continue on a long trail towards Pico do Areeiro, where we then rest to prepare ourselves to continue our journey in the Jeep Safari. The Nun’s Valley is a place where the nuns of the Convent of Santa Clara took refuge during the 16th century from the French privateer attacks on Funchal. After the safari, we stop for lunch to sample local cuisine, then continuing on our journey southwards to the final destination.
