Hiking UNESCO Heritage: Santana to Lajido

Pico island

This is one of the precious places protected by UNESCO from the interference of anything but sheer perfection: an authentic open-air museum and a mandatory pilgrimage for the lovers of wine artistry, as it is packed with cellars dating from the golden age of the Czars’ wine!

In this soil, where volcanism is strongly imprinted and heavy ox carts still pass by, coming across the origin of all this adventure, amidst the beauty of the land that originated it, is a privilege…

    L'expérience

    This is the ultimate tour if you want to become a liquorous Pico wine expert.

    We will bring you to an all about wine experience, while walking surrounded by unique landscape.

    Lajido is one of the oldest wine production places. Extend your knowledge on wine and discover Pico on foot with Futurismo.

    Due to the good preservation of the place with its many little adegas (wine cellars), manor houses and evidences related to the golden wine age, we can say that it is an authentic open air museum.

    • Madalena

      – After the check in Madalena, we are ready to go on this interesting trip. During the day, you will learn so much about Pico island and its wine culture.

    • Hiking trail

      – We will leave Madalena and reach the trail that leads through the landscape of the vineyards. Those are part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

      – You will walk through dense vegetation, along pastures and over stone paths marked by the constant passage of ox carts. Once in Lajido, we will have the chance to taste the traditional Pico wine.

    • From grapes to wine

      – The original wines from Pico are white with a high alcohol graduation (liquorous wines).

      – Three noble grape varieties exist. So we have Verdelho, Azorean Arinto and Pico’s Terrantez; Verdelho being the most common one.

    • More about wine

      – Due to the volcanic ground and special arrangement of vineyards, we obtain grapes with a high content of sugar. The wine has an equilibrated acidity and high minerality.

      – Pico has been producing wine since the 15th century, some years after the first settlers came.

    • Wine tasting

      – After this cultural hike and delicious wine tasting, we will go back to Madalena to drop you off.
