Trail 01 | Ocotea
In this unique off-road route we will visit the Madeiran mountains to the north of the Island, along some of the most emblematic and nostalgic routes in the region. Let’s explore one of the most beautiful valleys, protected by the Pico Ruivo and the Pico do Arieiro peaks, an area which is only accessible on foot or with the use of all-terrain vehicles. In this valley surrounded by Laurissilva Forest, where the trails penetrate the grove, you will have the unique opportunity to visit the mysterious dwellings of ancestors such as the oldest trees that exist in this haven of Macronésia, recognised by UNESCO in 1999. And for lovers of Geocaching, it is possible to search for geocaches at stopping points along the route. This trail is undoubtedly one of the Island’s best kept secrets.

Along the trail through this forest you can admire the extraordinary beauty of the endemic flora and fauna of the island of Madeira. The verdigris of the trees, the melodious singing of the birds and the whole environment is almost magical and fantastical. Embrace the natural surroundings while you drive and enjoy unique places where you can relax a little.
