Adventure ride in Sete Cidades
Jeep Tour to Sete Cidades – Full daySao Miguel island
In a guided experience through the features of a still unknown island, our jeeps and our guides will help to the construction of another perspective – the perspective of adventure, of intriguing moments, and of glowing instants.
Areas where the vegetation is almost untouchable; woods where specimens of the endemic flora emerge and alternate alongside with exotic species of the world. We will show you how to go through all of this green, in wide, open fields defined by walls of black, basaltic rock; how to jump over puddles and up the hills while the branches flee at our passage and the birds fly over lagoons and bogs.
From love, Nature was born
Be surprised by the old love legend associated with the formation of Lagoa das Sete Cidades, between the blue and green lakes. Our guides will tell you the story like no one else!
Mouthwatering local food included
Each island in the Azores has its regional delicacies. Try the delicious Azorean cuisine and let yourself be carried away by traditions!
Surrounded by green, get mesmerized by the deep colors of Sete Cidades.
Relax on pure nature
Surrounded by lush walls of the volcanic crater, you can listen to birds and enjoy beautiful sceneries.
We cover dirt paths never explored before. The jeep trip with an experienced guide behind the wheel involves routes outside the typical tourist itinerary.
Inside the crater
Go inside the volcanic complex of Sete Cidades and discover the beautiful village with two lakes.
The Western area of São Miguel is not to be missed! You would miss a lot of breathtaking natural landscapes.
One thing is for sure on this island, don’t go home without visiting Sete Cidades.
With our expert guide, we will take you to the most beautiful places in this region.
Between viewpoints that will take your breath away, lakes of all colors, and a natural pool in the ocean, heated by the volcanic activity, you will not know where to look!
Vista do Rei belvedere
– After checking in at our shop in Ponta Delgada or picking you up at your hotel, we will drive to the famous Sete Cidades lakes.
– You can expect awesome panoramas over the green and blue lakes from Vista do Rei belvedere. This is a place you don’t want to miss during your stay in the Azores.
Pico da Cruz

Inside the crater
– Let’s go down to the bridge separating the two lakes and discover the peninsula, called Ponta dos Carneiros.

Ponta da Ferraria
– Last but not least, we will stop at Ponta da Ferraria. It is a magical place where the water from the Atlantic Ocean is naturally heated by a volcanic fissure.

Reviews What people think about
A big THANK YOU to PAULO, a true professional in the field of tourism, who provided us with a spectacular day, with a lot of history and adventure on the Jeep tour through Lagoa do Fogo and Sete Cidades. For those who love nature, I highly recommend it !!!
A hug and … until next year! Matilde, Sónia and Pedro
Thank you so much Futurismo for making our wonderful holiday so very very special. Thomas our tour guide was second to none with his knowledge and service. The whale watching tour was absolutely brilliant and we were lucky enough to see four different species of dolphins and watch sperm whales diving for a giant squid.
The boat crews were professional and extremely knowledgeable about all of the creatures (Thank you Victor). Kayaking, mountain biking, and off-road jeep safaris all included by Futurismo and each and every activity was second to none. I strongly recommend Futurismo every time.
