The Azorean sea and its inhabitants are, without a doubt, fascinating and attract a lots of interest but Pico's landscape natural beauty and originality has its own charm.

The Azorean sea and its inhabitants are, without a doubt, fascinating and attract a lots of interest but Pico's landscape natural beauty and originality has its own charm.

With 35 % of Pico’s land listed and protected by UNESCO as World Heritage, you do not want to miss the opportunity during your stay on the Island to discover the geodiversity and biodiversity of it.

We are very proud to offer a 'classic': Climbing Pico, Portugal's highest  mountain. However this climb requires some preparation, so before you embark on the journey our guide will advise you on the required/desired equipment, the weather condition and the security procedures via a powerpoint presentation so you can fully enjoy the hike. We recommend this particular climb to people with a good physical conditions.

Besides the well-known trails, we offer two complementary trails, in a mixture of sight seeing and original walks. These hikes are more flexible and adaptable to all.

Trail One: 'The Black Volcanic Rock' hike starts with the Torres Cave visit, a volcanic tunnel of around 7 km (only 500m is open), followed by a short walk through the vineyards listed and protected by UNESCO as world heritage.

Trail Two: The discovery of the 'Azorean Green Endemic Vegetation' which is slowly disappearing due to intense agricultural activity. This is a series of small walks around Pico's East side highest plateau's hidden lakes.

We recommend for you to book in advance as we limit our groups to twelve persons.  These walks are a good alternative when the weather doesn't allow sea activities.

Pico 'three' colors will take you through a journey from the blue lagoons and ocean, green forests and pastures to the black mountain.
