what to do in pico
Things that you just can’t miss in Pico
From the top of its 2351 meters of altitude, the mountain of Pico is the highest point of the Portuguese territory. From its magnificent summit, we can admire the breathtaking view of the islands of Faial, São Jorge, Terceira, and Graciosa.
The geological formations produced by the encounter of lava flows with the sea created around the island dozens of natural pools.
Swimming in crystal clear waters amidst volcanic black basalt formations is a unique and unforgettable experience!
The Azores are one of the largest whale sanctuaries in the world. More than 25 cetacean species have been seen in its waters. The deep waters off the coast of Pico make the island one of the best places to do whale watching in the world.
Pico Island offers 14 trails classified by the Regional Government of the Azores, in order to guarantee the safety and tranquility of hikers.
Some of the trails cross UNESCO-classified landscapes. They are the best way to discover the island.
Pico offers several museums that represent the cultural heritage of Pico: the Whaling Museum, the Whaling Industry Museum, and the Wine Museum. The House of Volcanoes, opened in 2019, is the starting point for knowledge of the volcanoes of the Azores.
More than 100 caves have been reported on Pico Island. The Gruta das Torres is the only one open to the public. It plays an important pedagogical function, making known to the general public the geological and biological richness of volcanic cavities.
