The climb to Pico Grande is an option on Day 6.

You must be reasonably fit, sure-footed and have a head for heights. If you do decide to take this option, return the same way as you went up, back to this point.

Turn-by-turn directions

To climb to Pico Grande, BEAR LEFT at the second CURRAL DAS FREIRAS sign, up the path by the chestnut trees. Follow the handwritten sign on the left to PICO GRANDE.

After a rocky section protected by handrail, reach a viewpoint. Climb a flight of stairs dug in the rock. The path is now bordered by vegetation on both sides. Continue always up on the main track and watch for the cairns.

Once at the foot of the peak, handrails help experienced climbers to reach the summit 1654 meters high.
