Hiking 150km Across Madeira – Madeira Island Ultra Trail – MIUT
In this cinematic hiking video, I hike the #MIUT also known as the #Madeira Island Ultra Run in early November of 2021. Our trek was a total of 93 miles and 30,000 feet of elevation gain (150 km and nearly 10,000 meters of elevation gain). We backpacked, camped, and hiked a total of 6 days, 5 nights, as we made it through a huge variety of terrain near the ocean, through the cloud forests, and onto the peaks of Pico do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo the highest peak on the island. The hike should have been about 115km long, but somehow, between getting lost, and also doing my back and forth with my filming, I clocked 150km. That’s a nice big number, so I’m going to go with that instead.
