Description

What’s more exciting than inside the crater of a volcano? Not much! Come on this overnight hike with me, or another experienced guide from Tripix Azores, and you’ll do exactly that.

On this overnight hike on Mount Pico, we’ll set off in the evening as the sun is beginning to dip in the sky. We’ll be able to enjoy the fantastic sunset as we ascend and watch the different colours of the sky.

We’ll spend the night camping in the volcano crater. From there, we’ll look up to the unobstructed sky and take in all the stars and constellations.

The next day, we’ll rise nice and early so that we can enjoy an impressive sunrise from the summit. It really feels like being on top of the world up there.

In total, this trip lasts around 20 hours, and you’ll be all finished by around midday the following day.

Request to book this unmissable experience, and you’ll be gazing up at the stars soon.

If you are looking for a shorter trip then you should check out my day trip to Mount Pico. 

Meeting point

We'll meet in Madalena.
