“An absolutely stunning hike through Madeira's highest peaks.”— Leslie Meerburg
Family Friendly This would be a fantastic hike for OLDER children (I'd say 10+). Not appropriate for toddlers due to the steep drops and the climbs.
The trail is not super difficult, but does have a good amount of climbing, so you should be in decent shape before starting out. Trekking poles are helpful for the descents. The trail is also under repair, so there are portions with no guiderail, and thus I would not recommend the trail to people who suffer vertigo.
