Just next to Faial in the Azores is the island Pico. The two islands are located very close to each other and a short trip with the ferry easily takes you to Pico. As we heard that it was a very cool island we decided to take the ferry there together with Svala and their crew. And we were not disappointed! Pico was very cool and pretty, and a lot of cows!
Taking the ferry from Horta was very easy, and a visit to Pico is something you shouldn’t miss if visiting Faial. We took the ferry by foot and rented a car once we got to Pico, but it wasn’t very easy finding cars. So, recommend to pre-book a car instead. But after visiting several car rental agencies we found a car!
After a really nice day we returned the rented cars, had a few beers at the harbor while we waited for the ferry back to Faial.
