NOTICE TO WALKERS: The Peaks Walk

As a safety measure, The Peaks walk (Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo) is closed as of Saturday 12 October 2013 due to a rockfall on the path.

Madeira Walks: The Peaks (Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo)

Pico Ruivo, Madeira’s highest peak at 1861m (and one of the 1,515 ultra prominent peaks in the world, is still accessible from Achada do Teixeia (PR 1.2) or Encumeada (PR 1.3) for a more challenging walk!

Madeira on Eurosport

New Madeira ad campaign on Eurosport

Madeira Islands have a new advertising campaign on the Eurosport platform (TV, internet and mobile) reaching more than 26 million people.

The goal is to promote Madeira internationally not just as a hiking destination but, more broadly, as an all year round nature tourism and active holidays destination.

Besides TV spots, there’s also a microsite with videos and pictures about the best outdoor activities in Madeira.

The Trekking video was done along some of Nature Meetings’s guided walks and at 2’20” you can even meet Gerry, our walk master! 😉
