Climb Portugal's highest mountain

Daytime Pico Mountain Climbing – Full day

Pico island

We call it the ultimate Azorean challenge – in fact, probably its most sublime show: overcoming the mountain, the greatness of its alpine habitat entrenches the spirit of those who achieve it as well as the multitude of sceneries that can be embraced with a single prime glance.

Accustoming your eyes to the consecutive rings of mist; adapting your body to the tremendous lightness of the atmosphere makes you feel blessed, in that top that suspends you in an infinite dazzle.

To watch the sun set from the summit sheds over the average human an aura of greatness, peace, and eternity.

    • Overview

      – Challenge yourself climbing Portugal’s highest mountain and enjoy the reward. This is the top thing to do while in Pico island, the ultimate Azorean challenge!

      – Besides breathtaking views and unforgettable memories you will be in contact with lots of geological formations.

    • Madalena

      – We will welcome you for check in Madalena. Then, we will take you to the mountain house at 1,230m of altitude.

      – There, the climb starts and takes an average of 8 hours both ways, including short stops and a picnic lunch at the top.

    • Ascent and descent

      – The ascent and descent lead over the same, rather steep path of rocky and irregular ground, sometimes covered with loose material.

      – A certified Pico mountain guide will give you tricks to make the climb easier. The guide will lead the way to the easiest ascent route, helping you to avoid injuries.

    • Back to Madalena

      – At the end of this amazing self-rewarding trip, we will take you back to Madalena for a well-earned rest.
