At '''Pico Island''' you can climb the mountain, 2351 meters above sea level. It is the tallest mountain in Portugal. Idealy you climb the mountain in the afternoon so you can see the sundown when you are in the top. Normally it takes 2 to 3 hours to climb. More if you are not fit. Then in the morning to see the sunset you climb a little mountain that is called Pico Pequenino (Little Pico) that the mountain has on the top. From there you can see the islands of Faial and São Jorge perfectly.

At '''Terceira Island''', visit UNESCO's Angra do Heroismo, a charming XVIII century little city full of local shops, cafes and bars. Terceira is inherently the happyest Island, and events occur during all year long, mainly the famous "Tourada à corda" where bulls are set free in the streets in a party environment. Since the XVI century, after the Spanish every year, each street or village performs a tourada (from May to October). Get a taxi or rent a car to go to one (every day touradas are performed). Once there pick any "Tasca Tradicional" (basically, a van with a bar) and eat a bifana (hot meat sandwish) and a cold beer, then find a safe place to watch the locals dodging the bulls. Get a tour around the island, go inside a volcano (Algar do Carvão), a cave (Gruta do Natal) or walk throught any of the dozens Trilhos (official hicking trails). Praia da Vitória is the second largest city in the island and has a beautifull sandy bay, where most water-related sports are available.
