Our Mission

Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean lies the deepest hidden treasure of all times. The Azores. At night, during the day and at the twilight, the landscapes are an invitation to pure states of mind, in harmony with nature.

In a place where time stood still and humankind merges with the earth and the ocean, one can truly sense the forces forever shaping our planet. This remote archipelago, surrounded by mist and the sound of the Cagarro, insists on remaining lost.

The Island of Pico is a creation in its purest form, beautiful and untouched. We would like to invite you to let us guide you through this volcanic rock we call home.

Climbing Pico Wonderful trip, great guide!!! Totally worth it! We spent the day climbing and coming down and we where lucky with the weather - from Piquinho we saw Terceira, São Jorge and Graciosa. Wile climbing we also had a great view of Faial. We hope to do it again!

Great experience by an extra experienced guide Great experience. The guide - Steph - was amazing, super kind and has great knowledge of the mountain. Also, the guide gave us some orientation on the weather forecast, which made us choose the best day (in accordance with the real weather instead of iPhone weather). Steph gave us some amazing tips on restaurants and places to visit in the island!

Great climbing experience Steffi sent us helpful information in advance so that we could properly prepare for the climb and updated us daily on the dates for the activity since the weather in Pico can rapidly change. During the climb, she made sure we felt safe by providing tips and respecting our pace. The tent and sleeping bag provided kept us cozy and warm throughout the cold night. Steffi is very kind, patient and made us coffee for the sunrise and sunset. She is a great guide and we highly recommend Hominis Natura! 🙂

Amazing guide! We did a climb up to Pico with Steffi. It was amazing, we don’t think we would have made it to the top without her as the climb was way steeper than I had ever imagined. We did a private booking which allowed us to keep the pace in which we were comfortable in and she adjusted it to our needs. During the way up she also gave us the full picture of pico’s creation and history from its craters to its biology something you don’t really have when going by yourself and passing through all the places without knowing what they are. It really makes a difference going up with a guide, truly advise it.

Wow, great Experian e! Zdecydowaliśmy się na usługi Steffi i jej pomoc przy wejściu na górę Pico ze względu na trudne warunki atmosferyczne pod koniec marca 2021 roku i jesteśmy bardzo zadowoleni z tej decyzji. W cenie mieliśmy nie tylko wypożyczenie profesjonalnego sprzętu oraz ubezpieczenie, ale również doskonałą opiekę naszej cierpliwej i uśmiechniętej przewodniczki. Steffi nie tylko pokazywała nam gdzie stawiać stopy na najbardziej stromych kawałkach szlaku, ale również pomogła nam założyć specjalne nakładki na buty, które znacznie ułatwiły nam wspinaczkę po śniegu. Na szczycie Pico, gdy byliśmy już na prawdę zmarznięci, poczęstowała nas kawą z termosu. Miała nawet ze sobą dodatkową kurtkę i parę rękawiczek, których nam użyczyła! Nie raz na szlaku pomyślałam, że gdyby nie jej towarzystwo możliwe że - ze względu na silny wiatr i mgłę - sami byśmy zrezygnowali i zawrócili przed osiągnięciem celu. Jeśli jeszcze macie wątpliwości, czas się ich pozbyć - skontaktujcie się ze Steffi jak najszybciej. Polecam w 200%!

Amazing experience! Truly 5*! We both (me and my boyfriend) just love the experience of climbing Pico montain with Steffi. She gave us all the recommendations we needed before the climbing and, during it, she provided us a real sense of security all the way up and down, fun resting times and sense of respect for the nature, making it a truly pleasant experience. We strongly recommend it! 5*!

Wonddeful guide, great November Pico hike We had a wonderful Pico hike with Steffi at the end of November. She was very responsive to our questions before the hike and made sure that we were well prepared. On the day of our hike she also explained carefully what to expect and gave us tips throughout about how to navigate some tricky parts, how to make sure we don't slip, etc. We felt very safe with her and I also appreciated her frequently checking in about the pace to make sure that I was comfortable. She also gave us a lot of interesting information about the island (she is a biologist!) and an excellent recommendation for a dinner place after our hike. We would 100% recommend Hominis Natura, especially if you're looking for a small group/private, personalized experience.

Steffi plans and guides impeccably. Steffi plans and guides impeccably. After initially contacting her, she explained the peculiar quick-changing weather of Pico Mountain, and how the decision of when to go depended on it. She sent a short document explaining the type of climb and what was needed to complete it. For a few days, I received her observations on the weather and forecasts, until she decided the day that would be ideal. Thus the climb and descent of Pico Mountain were excellent, her forecast spot on. Besides knowing the Mountain, Steffi feels the island and the people she guides.
