A must for thrill-seekers and adrenaline-junkies!

Madeira Arieiro Peaks - Naxos - Minube

The Huffington Post asked the Minube crowd to hand pick some of the world’s most unforgettable adventures and came up with a list of must-experience places for every thrill-seeker, adrenaline-junkie out there.

Madeira is of course one of the featured destinations.

Traditionally famed for its hearty wines and laid-back lifestyle, recently Madeira has been increasingly popping up on the adventure tourism radar thanks to its world-class surfing, lush interior and stunning trails along its misty volcanic ridges. The most rewarding climb is definitely Arieiro, a rocky peak whose trails take travelers through verdant eucalyptus forests to a lunar landscape high above the clouds.

We wouldn’t say it better ourselves!
