  • Today we booked a flight to Madeira - because of your amazing videos - no kidding! I've watched them again and again over the past couple of days.... ♥ Would you tell me when those videos were shot (which month)? We'll go there in May. Aaaand do you by any chance recall which route you took exactly? I read that at the moment the eastern route is closed and the only way - there and back - leads through the western route. Since you hiked through tunnels I assume you took the western route... Thanks for letting me know :)

    • @Sandra B on my blog you can find several articles about Madeira My advice is to just go and take a look for yourself. I can't say wether you would dare to do it or not. Everyone is different. But it is sure worth it!

    • @World Wanderista I´m afraid of heights is this to difficult, will I turn back. This looks so beautiful, like to be able to go, is it difficult to meet people on the way, is the path to narrow.

    • Thank you so much for your quick response! I can't wait to go :)

  • Hello! I want to go to Madeira for our honeymoon because of your video! :) We love hiking as well. May I ask which camera are you using? We want to consider buying one, I feel like photos just wouldn't give back this lovely and amazing view.

  • Great video of my favorite island Madeira. I used to live in Portugal long time ago but never visited the Madeira! I find it specifically interesting that you did it alone all by yourself. A truly Brave woman. :) I will visit Madeira soon.

  • I hiked in Madeira in 1990. On the easier paths I was accompanied by my father and daughters, but one day I wanted to go on my own and take a more challenging hike. I was in a a pretty good condition then, but the guides warned me not to go alone. Well, it was quite a levada! There were no safety ropes on the steep side, and the path was high up. Anyway there were some plants climbing on the mountain wall, and I took hold on them. I never forget that experience.

  • Stunning video! I stay for 1 week in Madeira at the beginning of December! Stunning views all over this island, I must say that 1-week didn't felt enough, I would love to come back! Since I didn't rent a car, I was lucky to find a new small company doing transfers to Pico Do Arieiro (picking me in Teixeira), 25 Fontes and Caldeirao Verde! Their prices are the most budget that I found and their concept worked perfectly for me! I don't like to be following a big group of people as the guided tours do, so, having a cheap transfer and walking on my own was just awesome for me! I found their website on Google, the name is Pico Transfers.

  • I am thinking of taking this trip but I will probably die because I am fat American. Still I am willing to risk it to see the beauty along this hike. Who want s to be my guide?

    ExaelitusExaelitusVor 7 Monate
    • @Exaelitus just the normal hiking stuff. Nothing special. It's only 1862 m of height. I don't do sports and I did it. I don't know what I should think of someone calling himself a fat American. But maybe hiking sticks are useful to support your knees because the steps are steep. But you already saw that in the video. Just use your common sense and you know wht you need.

    • @World Wanderista What sort of precautions or items should I take. I am pretty out of shape. I just recently took a pretty active job so I am hoping it will prepare me for lots of walking if I go next season. I want to do this to challenge and motivate myself. Should I bring portable air? I've never been up a mountain before. :X
