The volcanic cone of Pico (on Pico) Portugal
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The volcanic cone of Pico (on Pico)

It is worth climbing the volcanic cone of Pico on the same name island. Natural paths will lead you up to the peak at 7,711 ft. This is the highest peak in the Azores islands and in the whole of Portugal. This is also the most popular sightseeing spot of the archipelago. It takes a seven hour hike to get your way around the entire island.
