A drive to Pico do Areeiro, the island’s third-highest point, will provide visitors with a magnificent landscape of the central ridge and its peaks. The trail connecting Pico do Areeiro to Pico Ruivo is one of the most scenic, but also very challenging. For a less strenuous hike, follow the footpath starting at Achada do Teixeira, Santana.

If you want to make this footpath, it is recommendable that to hire a guide.
