Azores 2 Island Classic Pico and Faial


From $605!

 

7 Days, 6 Nights. Visit the two islands, where the scenery of the Volcanoes and the wineries makes them unique amongst the other islands. Pico Island has the tallest mountain of Portugal with an elevation of 7713'  and it's considered the youngest island of the Azores for its many young lava flows and another reason why this island is not a beach destination.

One of the greatest views during this tour will definitely be the amazing Pico Mountain. The characteristics black volcanic rocks are used to build houses and walls in a distinctive fashion. Pico was, in the past, an important whaling station. The museum will give an idea how islanders took to the seas in open boats during that period. Nowadays, whales are the pearls of the ocean and one of the most beautiful attractions. This Island is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage due to the many acres of vineyards encircled by small, black volcanic rock walls to protect them from the salt winds and to collect extra heat. No lunch included. Return to the hotel.

Continue north to Capelinhos, site of the last volcanic eruption in the Azores, that occurred in the years of 1957-58 which added 2 square km to this island. The earthquakes and ashes destroyed much of the west side of the island prompting many islanders to immigrate to North America and from where many now come to visit again or just to see where their families came from.
