The Sea to Summit Trail in Madeira
leads from the beach in Paul do Mar to the highest peak on the island, Pico Ruivo.
The multi-day hike starts through a rugged gorge to Prazeres and
from there along the Levada Ponta do Pargo and through the Ribeira
da Calheta tunnel to the Risco waterfall. After the winding Levada do Paul and the
Levada das Rabacas, you go through a 3 km long tunnel onto the long-distance hiking
trail PR 17 and finally onto the high-altitude trail PR 1.3, which leads along numerous
peaks. Finally we reach Madeira's largest mountain, Pico Ruivo. The
last stage is the spectacular trek to Pico Arieiro, which runs through tunnels, over
exposed paths and on steep stairs.
The tour is designed as an autonomous hike, which means that we transport our food and overnight utensils ourselves during the daily stages. In many places we meet civilization, so that we can stock up on food again and again and not have to carry the supplies for the entire route.
We discuss the prior planning and organization on the day of arrival, we spend the first night in the holiday home. The last day serves as a reserve and to relax with a delicious barbecue.
All services come from a single source: accommodation, meals, transfers and the Sea to Summit hiking package. Benefit from a well-organized trip. If you need special equipment such as a headlamp or a tent and a sleeping mat or crockery, we will provide this free of charge. This way, your flight baggage does not become unnecessarily heavy.
You can spend the first and last night in an apartment, in a single or double room or simply in a tent, as you wish.
On two days we enjoy full board consisting of breakfast, packed lunch and a delicious dinner or barbecue. During the trail we cook together.
Of course there is a camera with you on the hike, we would be happy to burn a DVD with your personal experiences for you.
