The Lagoon hike

The Lagoon hike

The Lagoon hike starts at Lagoa do Capitão, with Pico mountain in sight. A geological fault made the soil impermeable and formed the lagoon. We walk through Pico central plateau. So we will have the chance to appreciate the view of Pico mountain. And cross a variety of volcanic characteristics, but also the meadows for cow farming. One of the most interesting segments is when we cross a well preserved native forest. There we can learn about some of the most emblematic endemic species. Lagoa do Capitão hike finishes at São Roque Village. Where if conditions are right, we can refresh ourselves by swimming in the ocean, overlooking Pico Mountain.
