Description

For this experience, we will leave from Ponta Delgada to Lomba de São Pedro, in the municipality of Ribeira Grande. The hike is located along the north coast of São Miguel island.

It is the ideal hike for you if you enjoy nature, waterfalls and coastlines! You could discover more about old agricultural production and about the watermills that were used in this area.

It is a circular walk of 5,5 km that will take about two hours and 30 minutes in total. The hike starts near the church of São Pedro with a dirt path that goes down in the direction of the ocean. We will first stop by the viewpoint of Miradouro da Rocha and then reach the waterfall of Homem.

From now on, the path will take us to the ancient ruin of the watermill of Felix, Teofilo's waterfall, Gruta's waterfall and the Trout's well. These places are of an immense beauty and surely you want to keep them in your memories and on pictures!

At the end of our hiking trail, we will be able to see as well some old fountains once used to supply the villages with water. After this amazing day we will then head back to Ponta Delgada.
