Pico, Azores

Description

Pico, Azores

Pico is the second largest of the nine Azores, and belongs to the central group of islands. It houses the highest mountain of the Azores, Mount Pico, 2351 m. This forbidding black stratovolcano can be climbed, but that’s not without danger. Choose a clear day, take enough water because their is no source, and be sure to be in a good shape, especially when going down through the tiring volcanic grit. If you don’t feel sure, take a guide.

This spectacular cone is not the only interesting aspect of Pico. Even more intriguing is the long string of small cones and lakes extending from the eastern point of the stretched island towards mount pico. Parts are overgrown with shrubs and forest, protecting even some of the original endemic vegetation. Along the northeast coast, several shorter and easy trails are set out. Much of the lush coast is still wooded.

Check the list of all nine Azores islands.
