This walk will give you a a more comprehensive idea of the real beauty of this island. Rock formations seem to want to reach the sky like endless sculptures. Throughout the trek the views are simply breathtaking and near Pico Ruivo we pass through the oldest known Heather forest. These trees have stood for hundreds of years existing when Zarco arrived on the island. This walk of contrasts is a must for anyone's bucket list!
