Senderismo en Moinhos da Ribeira Funda/Praia da Viola/Maia – día completo

Esta ruta comienza en Ribeira Funda (Fenais da Ajuda) e termina en el puerto de pescas de Maia. Seguiremos el arroyo e descubriremos ruinas de antiguos molinos de agua. Cruzando a la otra orilla del arroyo llegaremos al punto de conexión con la ruta de Praia de Viola. Después de llegar a la preciosa playa y de dar un paseo por su arena negra, empezamos a subir y tendremos una vista más amplia del lugar. Continuamos por un camino estrecho con muchos juncos gigantes (arundo donax), encontrando muchos riachuelos y los típicos paisajes azorianos (campos verdes, pastos, y algunos animales). Después de caminar por esta ruta que siegue la línea costera llegaremos al puerto de pescas de Maia, donde acaba nuestro paseo. Si te quieres refrescar con un baño rápido, podemos caminar un poco más hasta las piscinas naturales del pueblo.

    La Experiencia

    • 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.

    • Fenais da Ajuda

      – Once ready, let’s drive eastward to reach Fenais da Ajuda, where we will begin the walking trip. On the way, we will stop by Coroa da Mata to see the beautiful view over Ponta do Cintrão.

      – Here you have a panoramic view over the largest plain on São Miguel island, where the city of Ribeira Grande is located.

    • Ribeira Funda

      – The 5km trail starts in Ribeira Funda, in front of Ermida Nossa Senhora da Aflição. We will follow the stream downwards. There, we will discover some ancient water mill ruins and the waterfall of Ribeira Funda.

    • Viola beach

      – Crossing the stream bed will lead us to the route going towards Viola beach. Then, we will take a break for our light meal and relax a bit before resuming our trip.

    • Between vineyards and tobacco productions

      – Back on the trail , you will discover some vineyards and the tobacco production area until reaching the village of Maia. We will explain you everything about them and how they impact the way of living of the local people.

    • Maia

      – The trail ends next to Maia’s fishing harbor. Feel free to take a dip in the natural pools or beach.

      – We suggest swimming at Maia beach because Viola beach can have stronger currents and for this reason it is better for people who don’t feel comfortable in the ocean.

    • Way back home

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