About the Experience

Do you picture yourself sleeping inside the crater of a volcano? This is the proposal of the overnight Pico mountain climb. The ascent is held with the light of the evening in order to enjoy the incomparable sunset and all shades of the last rays of the day...at night we sleep in tents inside the volcano crater, with the sky full of stars and a peace about the size of a universe...the awakening is done before sunrise, so we can enjoy every moment of the most beautiful sunrise at the "top of the world".
