Mount Pico

Pico Mountain is the third highest volcano of the North Atlantic. It is quite impressive to see this huge mount rising up from the ocean. Climbing Mount Pico is the ultimate Azorean challenge. It is quite physical, but the views are worth the effort.

About Mount Pico

There is no more poetic place in the Azores than this magnificent volcano. At the summit, the four other islands of the Azorean central group are revealing themselves on bright days. Above the clouds, it is a dreamy scenery to observe the sun rising from the infinite ocean and setting, leaving all of us in the dark, alone with the stars. 

Despite temperatures in Pico island are reasonable, you can see snow on rare occasions at the top of the mountain. A unique landscape in the Azores.
