Full description

Watch the sunrise above the clouds on this private guided 4x4 trip starting with pickup from your accommodation in Funchal or Caniço. Travel through the mountains 1,818 meters high to Pico do Arieiro, Madeira Island’s third highest peak.

Hop on a Land Rover 4x4 directly from your hotel and head toward Pico do Arieiro, one of the few mountain peaks on the island accessible by car. Make a toast with a hot cup of coffee in hand and plunge back under the clouds. 

Admire the mountain’s lush vegetation, including heather, moss, and the impressive purple Echium candicans, known as the pride of Madeira. Continue your adventure off-road and immerse yourself in the nature of the island before returning for drop-off at your hotel.

Departure from the hotel 10 minutes in advance, our driver and guide for this excursion Gonçalo a little on the reserve at the start, quickly made us discover viewpoints of Funchal in the middle of the night and completed my drive up to explanations. once up there, he had provided us with chairs, coffee/tea, throws and headlamps. We had the right to a magnificent sunrise above the fog. an unforgettable experience. Despite the language barrier, we managed to communicate throughout the journey. The very good contact with Gonçalo made our excursion even better. We highly recommend!

I’d seen this trip on TV before we visited and it did not disappoint! Diogo was our guide and he was on time and extremely pleasant. He looked after us really well and we were the first ones up the mountain which was exciting! We were very lucky with the weather, arrived in the pitch black dark, sat, freezing in our chairs with our hot coffees and watched the sun come up over the island and clouds! It’s awesome and then once the sun was up we skipped about admiring the stunning views. A really magical experience. Diogo gave us as much time as we wanted to explore both aspects from the mountain top.

Brito was our excellent guide. He carefully guided us to a private plateau. He provided, chairs. blankets, head torches and hot coffee. We were lucky enough to see a spectacular sunrise push it’s way through the cloud on the horizon. Thank you Brito you made it a memorable day for all 4 of us.
