Pico do Carvão Viewpoint (Miradouro do Pico do Carvão) Tours

The Pico do Carvao viewpoint is a popular lookout spot on Sao Miguel, the largest island of the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores.

Standing just over 2,600 feet high (800 meters high), Pico do Carvao also provides splendid views out to the Atlantic Ocean, as well as of several surrounding lakes, including Lake Carvao, Lake Canario and Lake Rasa. The area is quite green and flush with Japanese cedars and tree ferns and is often visited on day trips from Ponta Delgada.
