Great hike with a very energetic guide. The view from the mountain top at Sunrise is stunning! The hike is long (three hours to the top and three hours back) but not too difficult.

We have done the night hike starting at 2am with Martin from Sunrise Pioneers. The view is amazing and is certainly worth waking up at 2am and hiking for 3 hours at night. Hiking up at night actually makes it more interesting. I know some...More

We booked a guided tour with sunrise pioneers to get up the Pico during night to catch the sunrise. The trip was quite expensive but the view and experience were definitively worth it. You leave at 2:30 AM to catch the sunrise around 6h. The...More
