Ruivo Peak

Local namePico Ruivo
LocationSantana, Portugal

Pico Ruivo is the highest peak on the Madeira Island. It can be reached only by foot, usually either from Pico do Arieiro after a strenuous hike, or from Achada do Teixeira with a shorter, easier trail. There is an additional trail leading west to Encumeada. Hut just below the summit is permanently closed but there is water tap and toilets available.

Pico Ruivo is 1,861 metres high and provides some of the most incredible views of the island from coast to coast, but unpredictable weather conditions can make it quite dangerous.
