Pico do Arieiro

It’s a 45-minute drive from Funchal to the soaring peak of Madeira’s third-highest mountain, when on clear days visitors are rewarded with panoramic views around the entire island. If you’re an adventurous sort with a head for heights, consider setting out on one of the island’s most scenic hikes, which starts here and crosses Madeira’s three highest peaks.
