    Yesterday we discover Pico, the second largest island of Azores. It takes the name from an eponymous volcano, Ponta do Pico, which is the highest mountain of Portugal. Between the green meadows, the lava fields, the ocean, the vineyards and the views over the neighbour islands, we had a very nice day in PicoRead more

    Day 4 - ferry to Pico island

    October 3, 2017 in Portugal ⋅

    Leisurely breakfast and a stroll around the port, then a 30 minutes ferry journey to Pico, the next island, for the day. The tour took us all around the island visiting a wine museum (but with no wine), a whale museum ( but with no whales!). This was a big centre of whaling so it's still very recently in everyone's minds. Now it's a big centre of tourists wanting to go out to see whales off the islands. We may go later in the week. The island is dominated by its huge volcano, which is the highest mountain in Portugal. We also saw lots of the lava rock formations again, with huge Atlantic waves crashing over them. After getting the ferry back to Faial, we went up the caldera of the volcano here, but by the time we got there the clouds had come down and all we could see was thick fog!Read more
