Magical Forest and the Waterfall

Hiking Tour to Salto do Cabrito – Half day

Sao Miguel island

A journey around sulphurous waters heated by the land and around frigid, living waters that emerge from the springs:

The intense bush odor and the fertile vegetation join the walker and make him/her an intense part of this habitat forged in vines, flowers, tubers, and thick carpets of moss.

From the first electrical plants of the island, dating from the 19th century, to the clear pits where you can wash both body and soul; from bubbling waterfalls to leafy branches shading the soil on the paths; from suspended iron bridges over streams and visions of light in hidden spaces – all of these luxurious and incredible images can be captured.

    La Experiencia

    On this interesting easy circular hike, our guide will give interesting information about the water resources of São Miguel island.

    This is a great opportunity to be in contact with nature and at the same time discover how it becomes very useful in our lives.

    We will pass by curious places, such as an old hydroelectric power station, a hydro power plant or also fumaroles where you can cook dishes under the hot volcanic ground.

    • Let the adventure begin

      – After the check-in at our shop, or the pick-up in Ponta Delgada, let our adventure begin. Our guide will welcome you and lead you to one of our comfortable vehicles for a great experience.

    • The descent to the waterfall

      – Starting point: Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande.

      – The first part of the trail is to descend on a dirt path with lush nature until you reach the Hydroelectric Power Station of Salto do Cabrito. This is where we will enjoy the waterfall and have some time to take pictures.

    • Above the waterfall

      – Then we will go up some stairs with a very steep slope and on the way we will pass by an iron walkway. For those who fear heights, be prepared to overcome this challenge!

      – However, it is a footpath that is definitely worth it. We walk very close to the river and feel the vibrant nature.

    • Fajã do Redondo Hydroelectric Power Station

      – On the way, we will pass by the iconic former Hydroelectric Power Station. Then, it is time to return to the starting point.

    • Way back home

      – At the end of this experience, we will drop you back in Ponta Delgada.
