Pico do Areeiro – Pico Ruivo Walk diversions physically demanding: 5 hours

“PR1 (Pico do Arieiro – Pico Ruivo)

There are two diversions to overcome the blocked areas but they are phisically very demanding as you need to climb Pico das Torres. The following map illustrates the diversions:

This results in a 5 hour walk rather than the usual 3 hour walk. I would highly advise all walkers who intend to perform PR1 to make sure you are phisically very well prepared.

The Government has forecasted to repair the blocked areas in 2015.”
