Experiences on Pico Island

Get to know the best of Pico & Azores!





The most Epic way of discovering and living Pico

I met Claudia last time I went to Pico. I was already familiar with the island, as I'm Azorean and it was my fifth time there. Nevertheless, I can totally say, it was the time I liked Pico the most. Claudia made it special, showing us the most amazing secret spots, telling us the most interesting curiosities about everything we would see and making us build a strong connection to the island and its people. She clearly loves what she does and she will not stop for a second until she is sure you are having the most Epic trip of your life. Claudia is THE guide everyone should have when visiting the Azores - it's not easy to express how precious and unique these islands are. She is one of the few I have met that clearly can do it. Claudia: see you soon, definitely!

Whatever you want to do on Pico Epico will help you have a good time doing it.

Claudia is outstanding. You feel like you are hanging with a local (because you are!). She is extremely personable and will ensure you see everything you wanted, even the things you may not know you wanted to see! We had Claudia help us in July 2019 while we were on Pico Island for two days. We were traveling with our 81 year old father who wanted to connect with some distant relatives. We had researched some information, but Claudia actually met people before our arrival and located several families which she introduced us to. It was a memorable experience that would not have been possible without her dedication.

Beautiful Day in Pico

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of Pico with Claudia. She was a wealth of information and clearly loves her home island and sharing with visitors the unique beauty of the land and the people. The buffet lunch at the restaurant was delicious, and the wines we tasted at the wine co-op were wonderful. We were supposed to hike Mt. Pico with Daniel the next day, but Hurricane Lorenzo got in the way of those plans. We will definitely be back to hike Mt. Pico. We highly recommend Claudia and Epico.

Hiking Pico

The hike to Mt. Pico was amazing! Nuno is an excellent guide. He is from Pico and has a wealth of knowledge about the flora and fauna of the mountain and the island. Nuno set a good pace and helped the group to feel strong and positive throughout. Absolutely book with them! He even helped me coordinate a massage for after the walk!

Incredible trip because of Claudia

We asked Claudia to help us locate some relatives we had never met on our first trip to Pico. She was exceptional in locating them and doing an extra job in getting to know them in advance so that our brief time with them would be wonderful. She is warm, funny and connects with everyone she meets very quickly. Thanks again, Claudia!
