Gå opp pico Ruivo på enklest mulig måte! Denne turen er helt nydelig og passer for de som ønsker den enkleste veien opp toppen av øya. Guiden vår Luis er dyktig og lett å snakke med på vei opp denne ruten. Sammenlignet med andre turer opp som er mye tyngre og lenger velger Luis rute ut ifra at man faktisk skal nyte turen og utsikten. Anbefales sterkt!

Super wycieczka na szczyt. Nie za bardzo męcząca. Szliśmy grupą 5 osób plus przewodnik. Nie było poganiania. Mogliśmy iść własnym tempem i zatrzymywać się tam gdzie chcieliśmy.
