Spend a day in nature and see the Azores from a new perspective trekking to the top of Mount Pico, the highest peak in Portugal. You'll be enchanted by the views!
Trekking on Mount Pico
We'll meet at 8 am at the Casa da Montanha visitor centre, where we'll start our trekking route on Mount Pico. Did you know that at 2351 metres in height, the volcano is the highest point in the Azores and in Portugal?
Once we're all together, we'll give you some safety instructions before starting the hike. Let's get going!
We'll start ascending at a moderate pace adapted to the whole group. It'll take us between seven and eight hours to complete the whole route, three hours to reach the summit and about four hours on the way back.
Throughout our hike up Mount Pico, you'll enjoy mesmerising views of the surrounding area and the vegetation that changes as we gain altitude. You'll see everything from holly bushes to cedars that manage to survive the harsh conditions of the volcano. Finally, when we reach the top, and if the clouds don't block our view, we'll enjoy the unique landscape of the Azores archipelago from the peak.
At 3 pm the trek will end back to the original point.
Mount Pico Night Hike
If you wish, you can also book a night hike on Mount Pico. This tour takes you on the same route up the volcano, but this time you'll enjoy the trek at night and during a spectacular sunrise.
