As you stand on Pico do Areeiro, and see the first spark of the sun ascending from an ocean of clouds, you will know it was worth the effort. Even if you are not usually an early bird.
And don’t worry about the weather. In case it is not cooperative up here, your guide has back-up spots to take you to, such as Pico do Facho e Ponta São Lourenço. And two secret places that only a handful of people know. With these different possibilities in hand, he will ensure you experience a splendid sunrise.
Madeira is magical at sunrise and a jeep tour at this time is one of the island’s premier travel moments.
