Ultimate Adventure in São Miguel
Jeep Tour to Sete Cidades & Lagoa do FogoSao Miguel island
We offer a journey that is only possible in the comfortable agility of a jeep, taking side roads solely known to farmers and to the authentic local folks – along the day, these people will slowly reveal their secrets.
We witness the fertility of the fields only comparable to the wild exuberance of the bush; the serenity of the waters in the lagoons against the foamy movement of the sea envisioned from the top of the cliffs.
And we proceed, triumphantly, surrounded by scents, through rows of azaleas, hydrangeas and yellow ginger lilies!
Impressive Fogo volcano landscapes
Answer the call of the wild. Visit and admire a true natural wonder, the most beautiful green emerald lake on the island.
One of Portugal 7 wonders
In 2010 were elected the 7 natural wonders of Portugal, and it is no surprise that almost 700,000 voters chose Sete Cidades as one of them!
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!
Nature all around
There will be tons of different landscapes to see during this tour.
It is a great educational experience to visit Gruta do Carvão with a variety of geological formations resulting from the volcanic activity on the island of São Miguel.
A magnificent waterfall
The waterfall Salto do Cabrito is another one of the many natural phenomena of São Miguel island. For those who like hiking, this beautiful trail of about 4km gives us the feeling of being at one with nature.
This is THE experience you have to book if you are not in São Miguel for a long time and fear not to have time enough to visit everything.

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.
We enjoyed a full day on a jeep safari. The jeep gives the freedom to go off-road and that makes the trip special. Sete Cidades, Ribeira Grande and Lagoa do Fogo. If you are lucky with the weather – as we were – you can fully enjoy beautiful views and nature.
