Nature & Geology
In São Roque do Pico you can see one of the most beautiful lakes called Lagoas do Capitão, with a great view over pico Mountain. Surrounded by beautiful vegetation, a visit to Capitão lake will look like a timeless pause to breathe in an unpolluted place with incredible views.
From there, whalers used to embark on a dangerous adventure to hunt whales for the economy of the island. This tradition that sustained the island ended at the end of the 20th century, with the last whale caught in Pico.
