Description

We will begin this tour with the pick up in Ponta Delgada at 9am. From there, we will head to the area of Sete Cidades by jeep. On the way, we will take several off-road tracks which are normally used by local farmers. These roads pass by several spots that are only accessible by 4x4 and should not be missed as they show some outstanding views over the coast and parts of São Miguel Island.

During this tour, we will also stop at Vista do Rei, the famous viewpoint at Sete Cidades offering a beautiful panorama over the lakes. Passing by Pico da Cruz, we will enjoy other breathtaking views, where our certified guide will talk about the volcanic complex of Picos and Sete Cidades. Cumeeira Grande will be another highlight for views.

After this adventurous ride, we will reach the lakes at the bottom of Sete Cidades caldera, visiting the peninsula Ponta dos Carneiros and the center of the town. We will have lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, we will go back in the old days in Quinta das Raiadas, baking fresh bread or biscuits, milking a cow and tasting regional products.

It is definitely the perfect tour if you want to connect with nature and local traditions. We will drop you off at your hotel around 6pm.
