Pico Island Tour
After picking you up from your hotel, we'll start our tour of Pico Island by passing through the picturesque inland capital, Madalena. On the outskirts of the city we'll visit the Wine Museum, where we'll discover all about the wine-making process.
We'll continue discovering the importance of wine for the island as we pass through the green vineyards of Pico, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This beautiful countryside is overlooked by the nearby volcano that gives its name to the island. Pico Natural Park lies in the surroundings of Mount Pico, which is the highest summit in Azores and all of Portugal at 7713 feet (2351 metres) above sea level.
After admiring the wealth of natural beauty at the foot of the mountain, we'll take a break to replenish our energy with a traditional lunch. In the afternoon we'll discover the island's whaling activities; alongside the wine industry, whaling has been one of the economic forces of this area of the Azores for decades.
To better understand the importance of this industry, we'll head to the town of Lajes do Pico, in the south of the island, to visit the Whaling Industry Museum. Once there, we'll see different models of boats and various objects that will show us the evolution of the relationship between human beings and marine mammals throughout history.
After visiting the museum we'll pass along Pico Island's southern coast before finally returning to your hotel.
