Ultimate Adventure in São Miguel

Jeep Tour to Sete Cidades & Lagoa do Fogo

Sao 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!

    The Experience

    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.

    Let us prove you wrong with this tour. Our guide will take you to the ultimate places to visit on the island, in only one day.

    It is not easy to concentrate your trip in only a few days, that is why our guide will do this for you with those two regions: Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo and the areas around.

    They will take you to the most famous places, but also thanks to our 4×4 jeep, you will discover out-of-the-beaten-track landscapes.

    • Sete Cidades

      – This is a unique tour because you will see a wide variety of landscapes without having to hike the whole 11km trail. We will pass by many viewpoints, where you can enjoy the green and blue lakes.

    • Caldeira Velha

      – The adventure doesn’t stop here! We will drive to Caldeira Velha, a warm iron-rich waterfall. There, it is possible to take a dip thanks to the volcanic activity warming the water up to 26°C (79°F).
