AMAZING TEAM, great saving

Not long ago I wrote for Tripix the worst review I ever wrote. There were few different problem with our booking the main one was that we received an email 4 days before the date of the overnight climb of mountain Pico saying that an error was made by the team and our booking was somehow lost, so there were no more spots for us to sleep on the mountain. Considering that we booked it 2 months in advance I was fuming. BUT. The team contacted us shortly after, by phone, apologized and literally made every effort to make up for it. They asked a different company (so against their own interest) to take us on a night climb on the day we originally booked for, made sure every step of the way that we were happy with the new plan and even gave us bikes for free the day before the climb as a further apology. Matteo was wonderful to us, and the climb experience was gorgeous. Everyone can make a mistake, the way you fix it says a lot about you, and Tripix did an absolutely great job making up for their. Thank you, we are deeply grateful.
PS. According to our guide on the night Matteo is also a great guide to go up with, so I'm sure if your booking goes all well and you get to go up with him or his colleagues you'll enjoy it!

Fantastic and unforgettable experience. Mentally and physically demanding for a rookie in no physical condition, but the guide's motivational skills were exceptional. Matteo is the best !
One of the best climb I did !

Unforgettable experience, a must do in Pico

Unforgettable experience with our guide Matteo, he has been amazing with our group, always checking on us, adapting the group’s pace, and providing good advices and insightful information about the volcano. He always conveyed a very positive energy to the group. We are so happy about the experience ! The sunrise was amazing. We strongly advise to choose the Night option (compared to the Day climb), because 1/ you really have a goal to go up, and amazing spectacle with the sunrise, 2/ you don’t see what you need to climb because you are in the dark so it’s easier, and 3/ you end the trip when everyone is starting it, so it’s more enjoyable ;)


We booked the Night Climb and met at the Mountain House at 1:30 am in the morning (you also have the option to take the Tripix car at Madalena). Tripix took care of everything (GPS, registration, etc), we just had to show up there. We climbed the mountain and arrived at the very top at 6:10 am (we made several stops and took our time, because there is no point in rushing and wait for the sunrise at the top for hours - it can be cold up there). The sunrise was amazing, Matteo took many pictures of the group so we could remember it, and also had some surprises for us. And then we went down and arrived at the Mountain House at noon. We would recommend having lots of snacks so you can get energy easily all along the way. The climbing is not so hard technically, but it may be long and requires to have a good physical condition AND equipment (mountain shoes) AND motivation ;)

We climbed Pico mountain during night and loved it. It was great to see the sun rise at the top of Pico.
Our guide, Mateo, was amazing. He guide us perfectly, got us a perfect spot at the top of Pico and shared a lot of great stories with us.
I recommend it.
