Hiking to Criação Velha Vineyards – Half day

Pico island

No discouragement flourishes, no thought grows dark while we walk through this green-painted space decorated with carmine-colored fruits, where the breeze is a breath and the sun a warm quilt stretched over the cliffs.

By the light of a pure, clear air, we will visit the vineyards spilled over the slopes, but also furrows, barrel ramps by the seaside, shelters, and wine cellars – all that makes the wine culture a special, complex world.

By the shade of the cane fields, which sometimes hide the decency of robust cellars, we will discover the sea salty air mixed with the fresh smell of the grape must, in a unique visual, olfactory universe…

    La Experiencia

    This trail stands out for its scenic and cultural diversity.

    Since 2011, it has been part of an area of Protected Landscape for the Vineyard Culture, and is one of the most emblematic trails of the island.

    Indeed, it includes a great active vineyard area, where the walls streaking is in perfect state of preservation.

    Wander through a 1,500 year old lava field and admire the unique vineyards made of black lava stones and special vines, resistent to the Azorean unstable weather.

    • Candelária

      – This trail is a linear route connecting Candelária to Madalena.

      – From Madalena, we will reach the trail. It is located in an area that was classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004. This trail is particularly rich in elements of the wine culture.

    • Vineyards

      – You will discover what makes Pico’s wine culture so special. And how this unique landscape was created.

      – Walking over a 1,500 year old lava field, you will also be able to enjoy the view over the rock islets facing Madalena. From there we can see Pico mountain and other geological formations.

    • Wine tasting

      – Before reaching Madalena, you will have the chance to taste the wine at the local wine cooperative. Is there any better way to end a hike?
