Despite partial closure of the trail, we had wonderful hike to Pico Ruvio. Host Logan was very helpful, also with unusual requests. Co-host Filipe told us interesting facts about Madeira, during the ride. He also gave us a lot of tips for traveling around Madeira. Thanks a lot Do It Madeira :)

Absolutely amazing trip - could not recommend it more. Logan and Filipe were absolutely amazing hosts - so organised, friendly and passionate, as well as incredibly knowledgeable about Madeira. We saw the sunrise above the clouds and had an amazing hike between the peaks. Filipe then kindly stopped at Santana so we could see some of the traditional houses. Amazing day !
