The Great Volcano Outdoor Adventure

Mountain Bike Tour in Sete Cidades & Ferraria

Sao Miguel island

To cover the island by bike is to give each mystery the opportunity to unveil itself… recesses unknown to most are suddenly opened before us; magical places where we suddenly fit, in each curve of the way; the ubiquitous tune of the fauna and flora that we listen to is our travelling companion.

There is a time of our own and a geological time that worked such greatness – and they both interwoven. Along the ridge of the crater we will set our feet in a landscape that cannot be described, it can only be experienced…

At Ferraria we soften our body in a sea that amazes us as it carries in its waves the earthy heat of the geysers.

    The Experience

    Enjoy wonderful views from your bike and live the Azores as it should be lived: in the open air.

    Feel the wind from the Atlantic on top of the volcano crater rim and pedal down to the little town of Sete Cidades to explore this sweet village.

    • Ponta Delgada

      – We will pick you up in Ponta Delgada and take you to the renowned volcanic complex of Sete Cidades. That is where we start our bike adventure.

    • Sete Cidades

      – On this tour, we will explore the west side of São Miguel island and more particularly Sete Cidades.

      – Across a stretch of 25km (15.5 miles), you will have the opportunity to learn more about the fauna, flora, history, volcanic formation of the island. And of course, you will hear about the legendary love legend behind the formation of the green and blue lakes.

      – Along the route, as we pedal across the rim of the crater, we will have superb views over several lakes in the region as well as the adjacent coastline.

    • Lunch break

      – Later on, we will have a light meal before resuming our adventure.

    • Ferraria

      – At the end of the journey, we will stop by Ponta da Ferraria. There, you can find a magnificent ocean bathing area.

      – Don’t worry about the cold! The salty water is naturally warm thanks to volcanic activity. Indeed, it is located right on a volcanic fissure.
