With constant ups and downs, the road will show us very different and beautiful landscapes.
- Just before Ruivo Peak, we will encounter ancient trees that are many hundreds of years old, and were already there when Zarco landed on the island.
- Passing through small tunnels we arrive at Peak Ruivo; After a break, surrounded by an unusual landscape we start making our way down to Achada do Teixeira.
