Mount Pico 2351-m-high stratovolcano occupying the eastern end of Pico Island is the highest volcano in the Azores. Its signature views are not only breathtaking but also a 5 star ***** accommodation. Natural stars that is, you’ll get to experience... millions of them. Being one of the five islands of the central group. Sunrise views from the summit is truly a memorable experience that is an unforgettable sight. An eruption during 1562-64 from the SE rift zone produced lava flows that reached the northern coast. An eruption from a nearby vent issued lava flows that traveled into the sea on the southern side of the island. A flank eruption from Pico in 1718 fed lava flows that reached both coasts.
This volcano is located within the Azores, a UNESCO Global Geopark property.
