3 Day Challenge Across the Islands of Pico – São Jorge – Faial is the ultimate adventure experience!
Further up the mountain, you will notice the green pastures dotted with volcanic cones and lava tubes, where cows quietly graze throughout the year and where we can begin to see the unique mountain range and landscapes. At 1200m, you arrive at the base of the mountain and enter a nature reserve area of the Peak National Park, which is classified as Network Special Area of Conservation Natura 2000. From here the flanks of volcano become increasingly steep, the vegetation changes to typical species of alpine and sub-alpine habitats subjected to prolonged snow deposits. At 2250m of altitude, you arrive at the crater of Mount Pico Volcano and the end of the 1st stage of the Trail Run. Here, you are rewarded with the breathtaking landscapes of the Azores Islands and the satisfaction of conquering Portugal’s highest peak.
This 30km trail begins at St.Thomas, the oldest volcanic complex of the island. You will traverse through the southern coast coves and trek through yam, banana and coffee plantations. We end the trail and the 2nd stage of the Trail Run by descending toward the northern coves, to the Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo. This is one of the most popular surfer destinations due to it’s world class waves and beautiful coastal lagoons.
