Jeep Tour Sete Cidades & Back to the Roots

Sao Miguel island

This is a unique opportunity to witness a side of the island where nature is far more intense, where the springs arise as life itself, and where the fauna and the flora run high.

A jeep tour through paths only known to local folks unveils overwhelming, panoramic visions.

Wandering along an authentic volcanic complex, quiescent at present, you will draw closer to abysses where sight unfolds in light and nature and take on peninsulas extended over water and small settlements. This is the series of privileges that await you in this adventure.

Moments for perfect exchange of experiences will also be there, as we take you to milk cows, and to bake homemade cookies and bread.
