About Us

Allow us to introduce you to Manuel Goulart, the team guide coordinator. Manuel was born and raised in Pico, one of the nine stunning Azores islands. At the tender age of 11, Manuel went on his first date with Mount Pico; from that moment on, he was determined to follow in his Grandfather's footsteps and make mountain climbing his life's passion. Locals and visitors alike know him as "The Adventure Boy." Manuel finds great joy in being a mountain guide as it allows him to meet people worldwide and experience different cultures. 

You may find him living his dream in his office or on top of a mountain.
