Explore the Majestic Arieiro Peak and Nun’s Valley

Explore Nun’s Valley and its interesting history, Pico do Arieiro with its beautiful views from 1.818 m high, and Santo da Serra with its incredible and stunning landscapes. 

With a beautiful and panoramic view over Funchal, Câmara de Lobos, and Deserted Islands, we start our tour at Pico dos Barcelos. From there, we drive towards the famous Curral das Freiras (Nun’s Valley), which is surrounded by the highest mountains and historic places. Then we go uphill to Pico do Arieiro at 1818 m, where we can enjoy magnificent landscapes and great views over Ponta de São Lourenço, Ribeiro Frio, Paúl da Serra, Curral das Freiras, or even Porto Santo if there is good weather.

At our last stop, Ribeira Primeira Park, a sustainable project in the heart of the forest, you may visit the trout farm and enjoy a natural tea or Portuguese coffee (not included) at the Tea House, overlooking the park and the magical forest. On our way back to Funchal, we feel and see the real Madeira with many breathtaking views over the traditional terraces of the local farmers and amazing viewpoints.
