About
The Banana Trip is a full day cultural tour in Pico island. Usually, we focus on the South coast of Pico island. We will learn about the wine culture and the UNESCO World Heritage vineyards landscape. And we will better understand the importance of the Azores Whaling culture, by visiting a few heritage sites, like the Whaling Museum. A traditional lunch is included at Lajes village. In between, we will appreciate several natural tide pools and visit the interior of the island, Pico Central Plateau. We call it Banana Trip, because the final goal is to visit our own banana plantation. To check and see if there’s a ripe bunch of bananas, ready to harvest. The Banana Trip is a private cultural tour in Pico island that offers an exclusive experience. The price includes all expenses from Faial island and back.

We had two trips with Our Island and we loved them both! First one was a half-day trip in Faial and it was beautiful and Susana was very detailed about her island and the beautiful spots she showed us.
The second trip was the banana trip and like the name says it was "bananas!!" We visited many different spots with Pedro, from sea swimming to bananas harvesting, we did it all. And even had the chance to interact with local cows and have a sneak peek of Pico top and check one cave before going home. Amazing, definitely recommend this to all visitors! You'll have a lot of fun!! Thank you guys for giving us great honeymoon memories!

On our second day in the Azores we took the all day tour of Pico. What a terrific introduction to the islands. Pedro is extremely knowledgeable and passionate with a welcome perspective on protecting the natural environment. The traditional vineyards on this island were an especially amazing site.
