About the Destination

Pico Island, dominated by Portugal's highest mountain-the majestic Pico- is an island of unique beauty, authentic customs and traditions, and a mesmerizing man-made landscape protected by UNESCO. With our flight and hotel package we invite you to visit and have a wonderful vacation in one of the most beautiful islands of the Atlantic.  

Pico Island is known for its remarkable pattern of stone-walled vineyards (currais) which paint its stunning green landscape, for its rocky lava shores and for the imposing Pico Mountain. Wander around Criação Velha, a well preserved wine growing area and marvel at its intact vineyard landscape and culture. Taste the local wines and admire the construction of typical black basalt rock houses. Descend into Gruta das Torres, one of the world's longest lava tubes. Climb the highest mountain in Portugal or simply admire its grandeur from different spots on the island. 

To gaze upon the stars is to return to the beauty of nature unobstructed by city centers, and light pollution. Encircled by the Atlantic Ocean’s vast blues, the Azores offers prime viewing for stargazing and a reconnection to the natural wonder of the sky above. There is no better place to do so than at the Aldeia da Fonte Nature Hotel on Pico. Surrounded by Azorean woodland, this 4-star clifftop hotel is located just a few miles from stargazers’ paradise Pico Mountain. Towering at 7,713 ft. tall, unmarred by any surrounding light or pollution, Pico Mountain is Portugal’s highest peak, and without a doubt one of the best places in Europe for stargazing. The mountain itself overlooks the islands of Faial, São Jorge, Terceira and Graciosa. Reconnect with nature, reconnect with each other, and visit the Azores – through stargazing.
