Driving forwards and up to 1000m high, we’ll overlook Pine trees and fir trees, dominant vegetation that will transport you into a magic and invigorating scenery, along Casa de Abrigo do Poiso already at 1400m high.
On the way the Pico do Arieiro, we’ll again enjoy a very different natural scenery, which represents part of the Natural Park and one of the military areas on the Island.

We carry on to Ribeiro Ribeiro village, which is built- in the Laurissilva Forest and where you’ll be able to enjoy the Levada walk Balcões.
Proceeding through the inland, we’ll find some trace elements from other times, stating the hard life from long time ago.
The experiences will carry on happening along the tour, with the highlight of the surprise of our off road track, that will lead us to the emblematic city of Santana, where we will stop for lunch.
