It can be tricky deciding which of the nine Azores islands to visit – we often find that if you focus on the things you’d like to do during your holiday, you’ll naturally be steered towards the right islands. With the island of Pico, the two biggest draws are her whales and her wines.
You can whale watch from most of the Azores’ larger islands, but on Pico you’re heading out to sea with the originals – with Espaco Talassa: the first company to offer whale watching trips in the Azores. You’ll also have a chance to explore the island’s long history of wine production. The Adegas vineyards on the island are a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site and you’ll spend time with our resident guide Joao Xavier, tasting his family’s own wines. Your holiday also includes a short stay on the island of Faial – flight-wise, Faial’s better connected to the outside world so it’s easier to begin and end your stay on Pico’s closest neighbour, (the two islands are well-connected by ferry). If you’re considering a ten night or two week trip, we can extend your stay on Faial – giving you time to explore some of the Azores’ most spectacular volcanic landscapes.
