Lakes and Volcanoes Private Jeep Tour (Full Day)

By Atlantic Brine
About
Pico, the Azorean archipelago's youngest island with a history reaching back 300,000 years, unfolds an intriguing narrative. Home to Portugal's highest point, the Pico mountain volcano, the island features breathtaking pastures, varied geological formations, and natural lakes, contributing to its distinct landscape. Embark on a jeep excursion to explore the island's central plateau, navigating at an average altitude of 850 meters for a tranquil and immersive encounter with nature. Throughout this expedition, there will be opportunities to delve into the island's geology, wildlife, and plant life, enhancing your comprehension of Pico's captivating ecosystem. Observe the island's relatively recent eruptive activity as we venture into a lava tube, highlighting the dynamic geological forces in action.

      Book through the Atlantic Brine website not TripAdvisor / Viator
      We made the mistake of booking through TripAdvisor / Viator and so we ended up paying around 100 euro more than if we would have booked through the Atlantic Brine website directly to avoid the surcharges. The half day wine tour itself was a very nice experience. We toured vineyards and historic winemaking villages within 30-minutes of Madalena. The tour ended with a visit to a winery, sampling three white wines made with grapes exclusive to Pico Island. It was a great way to see some unique features of the island, learn about the wine making history of the region, and get some local insights from an experienced guide.

      Amazing vineyard tour+guide
      Filipe was an absolutely amazing guide! So knowledgeable about the various vineyards and wines on Pico and so helpful with everything else we were wondering about the island. Definitely take this tour if you’re in pico, you will learn so much about the history of the island and its wines!

    I took the full day tour with some friends and it was perfect! Philippe is such an awesome guide, so sweet and kind!! The island is beautiful and I feel like we got the best overview of it all. Although some of the lakes were fogged in ( you can’t control the weather) the views were beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a good feel of Pico island.

    This was an absolutely amazing tour. I can’t speak highly enough of our tour guide and his expertise. Our family felt like we were a part of his family taking a trip around the island, he was knowledgeable, kind, and well organized. He took us to some of the best spots in the island, we had a delicious lunch, and learned so much! We appreciated the time he took to customize this tour for exactly what our family wanted to see. He communicated with us during the whole process from pre-booking right to the day if the tour. We knew exactly what to expect, what to bring, and where to meet him on the day of the tour. We also loved the jeep he drove us around in. He even gave us a great tip for a good beach to see in Faial! This tour was an unforgettable experience that we will be talking about for a long time to come!!

    Thank you for an amazing tour, Filipe! I fell in love with Pico! The beauty is astonishing and magical! The mountain, hills, lakes, fields, lava rock, cows, horses, food! Everything was amazing!

    Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate, which is expected! I’m so grateful for what I did get to see on a cloudy and foggy day! Everything was amazing and Filipe is an amazing guide who loves his island and loves giving the best experience! He’s the owner, so his reviews are a direct reflection on him, and it was the best!

    Thank you Filipe!

    We all had a wonderful day with Felipe in spite of the weather which blocked a lot of the views from the mountain. He still managed to show us the highlights and provide lots of interesting info about Pico. Highly recommend this tour!
