Hike the highest mountain of Portugal on Pico

Hiking and mountain fans are also right on Pico. The Montanha do Pico is the highest mountain of Portugal. You don't need to hike the whole 2351 meters. With your hired car you can drive up to 1200 meters high. The road to the Casa de Montanha is already considered as an absolute highlight. Even if you decide not to hike, you should definitely take this road with your hired car. At the Casa de Montanha you can, if you wish, leave your hired car at a reasonable price and then make your way to the summit of the volcano.

This should be noted:

Attention: the climb is considered very demanding. It takes about 6 hours to get there and back from Casa de Montanha.
