Vereda do Areeiro Officially Reopened

The route between Pico do Areeiro and Pico Ruivo, one of the most popular routes in mountain areas, is open again after being closed on the 3rd of June, due to a landslide which destroyed a 20m section of the path, as well as guardrails and viewpoints.

The Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation(IFCN), immediately started a cleanup and repair operation, which they completed this week.  

It should be noted that the difficulty in operating in these places is great, as all the materials necessary for the repair work had to be transported manually from Pico do Areeiro.
