Pico Nighttime Mountain Climb – Full dayPico island
The mountain is not only the highest point in Portugal, but, mainly, the most beautiful seat to admire the universe.
To observe the sunrise from the top of this quiescent volcano enlightens humans, as if lending them, in fact, an aura of deity.
The sunrays tear the horizon, setting the cobalt-blue of the Atlantic on fire, and the sense of conquest and fullness is absolute.
During the descend, as if nature held a spotlight, the light will increasingly shed over the islands of the central group, stunning in their Atlantic awake.
Sunsets are overrated
If you think sunsets are beautiful, wait until you see the sunrise from the highest point of Portugal.
Defy the night
One step at a time, achieve this incredible experience in altitude in the dark.
During the night, the climb is even more challenging, but you will be so amazed by the sunrise that you will forget the effort.
The colors of the sunrise are simply beautiful, relax and breathe pure air before going down, back to normal life.
For sure this is an experience you won’t forget.
– In the middle of the night, we will pick you up in Madalena for a trip of a lifetime.
– Equipped with headlights, we will start the ascent at the mountain house (1,230m) still during the night.
– The trail leads over a rather steep path of rocky and irregular ground, sometimes covered with loose material.
– Our guide will show you tricks to make the climb easier, leading the way up the easiest route. This will help you to avoid injuries.
– After enjoying the sunrise at the summit (2,351m) we start the descent.
– The sunlight reveals breathtaking views over the 5 islands of the central group on a good day.
– You will also see various geological formations. Namely volcanic pits, craters and cones, an eruptive fissure, pyroclastic deposits and fumaroles.
Back to Madalena
– At the end of this amazing self-rewarding trip, we will take you back to Madalena for a well-earned rest.

Reviews What people think about
We scheduled the climb to Pico for the 25th of October. I admit that we had no idea what we were going to do. Jennifer and Daniel were on the dock at the time to take us to the Mountain House. There we started the climb to the highest point in Portugal with the private guide (Daniel). It was tough, the weather didn’t help but the guide made the whole effort 100% effective. We can say that more than the goal of reaching the top, the whole way is beautiful. From the “wild” sheep to the winged star. Worth it. Advise adventurers!
Wow fabulous is the only way to describe this trip – Our guide Gena was very informative and not afraid to try different things
