Pico Overnight Climb

Booking in advance is the best way to secure your climb as spots are limited.

After booking, don't close your tab. A form will appear after clicking "Complete Order" to provide info for your spot in the Mountain House.

Choosing the overnight climb means you will enjoy the sunset, sleep in the crater and see the sunrise from the top of Pico mountain (2351m); 🇵🇹

The climb and descent take an average of 4 hours to go up and 4 hours to go down with some breaks at strategic points chosen to eat, drink water, enjoy the view and rest a little.

Once we reach the crater, we will set up camp and watch the sunset from the crater or Piquinho. We will have dinner together under the stars in a group and then head to get a good nights rest in our tents.

Before sunrise, the Guide will call everyone to climb Piquinho and watch the sunrise from the top of the mountain, enjoy the landscape, embrace the moment, and take some unforgettable photos 📷

After watching the sunrise, we will head back to camp in the crater to have breakfast, dismantle our tents, pack everything inside our backpacks and begin the descent.

If desired, we can include a delicious Soup (thermal container 500 grams per person, 

€5 extra in cash).
