This was a really fun excursion on Pico. This is the largest volcanic tunnel in Portugal and is quite an interesting tour. Even if you're not into science the location is spectacular and the tour is short enough that even kids should be able to endure it.

This guided tour was a fun thing to do as part of our day trip to Pico. They provide hard hats and the guide gives you a brief history lesson.

We went to this lava tunnel tour on a rainy day in Pico. Anna was our guide and she did a great job of conveying the uniqueness and adventure of this tour. We loved her enthusiasm. The lava tunnel experience is very unique to Pico and this one in particular is woth seeing. It is presented in an educational way that allows you to get more information about these tunnels, how they are formed, and what is living inside them. Amazing!

This is a great way to spend two hours. You are out of the elements and can enjoy something very unique to Pico. It is highly recommended.

Wear good shoes.

Portugal's largest lava tunnel. Nicely organized with a film as a starter. Knowlegible staff. For those who are claustrophobic it's not for you and wear suitable shoes has it has some slippery spots.
