Hi Timo, great view... did you walked from Arieiro to Ruivo? If so, what can you say about this path? (perhaps I'll go to Madeira that's why I'm interested in:) Greetings to Finland from Lithuania, Jurgis

Hi Jurgis and thank you! Yes, I walked this path from Arieiro to Ruivo on May this year. At this time the route with two tunnels was closed so we walked the bit longer alternate eastern way. The ascends and descends were quite steep there, but with some resting couple of times everything was OK. This path was providing the best mountain views in Madeira, so it is highly recommendable for people with healthy feet :) One route to recommend is Ribeiro Frio, this was a bit easier to go than Arieiro-Ruivo but also with some great views; Actually this was a good starter route. The guide book I used there for trekking was published by the "Sunflower Books", this I found very practical and nice to use. Have a nice trip there and pls shoot great pics from there too :) Best regards, Timo

Hi again Timo, thank you very much for valuable information! I plan to go to Madeira in end of January 2009 (there is an orienteering competition - suunistuskilpailu:) ), so now is the time to collect information about what to do/see. Very best wishes from Vilnius, Jurgis

I see.. also a place worth of visiting from the visual point of view was the most eastern peninsular Ponta de Sao Laurenco (better pics from other users). The orienteering should be very interesting in the Madeiran environment, at least not too dull :) Have a nice suunnistus there! BR, Timo

Hienosti Timo olet saanut kuvattua korkeus eroa mitä tosiaan löytyi Areiron ja pico ruivon välillä. Maisemat ovat aivan mahtavia Madeiran saarella.

Terveisin Kimmo

Kiitti Kimmo, oli tosiaankin vierailun arvoinen paikka tuo saari. Voisi käydä joskus uudelleenkin mutta sitä ennen pari muuta uutta paikkaa listalla ;)

Mukavia kuvaushetkiä toivottelee Itsenäisyyspäivänä, Timo
