If you're a mountain lover visiting Madeira, hiking the Vereda do Areeiro (PR.1) is an absolute must-do. This challenging trail connects three of the island's highest peaks: Pico Ruivo (1862m), Pico das Torres (1851m), and Pico do Areeiro (1817m). While the hike is incredibly rewarding, it can also be quite strenuous, especially on hotter days. Be sure to bring enough water for the entire hike, as there are no opportunities to refill along the way due to the trail's high altitude. Additionally, proper footwear is crucial for this intensive hike – leave the sandals behind and opt for shoes with good grip and support.
