In the Azores Triangle Islands (Faial, Pico and São Jorge) there are 21 official hiking trails (marked paths) that lead us to some places only accessible by walking. There are many landscapes to explore: fajãs (small sea level flat areas located at the feet of the island’s high cliffs), waterfalls, hills, volcanos and mountains, amongst those, Pico is the highest mountain in Portugal.
