Description

Marvel at the beauty of Sete Cidades, located at São Miguel's west end, during this fascinating half-day walking tour. Acquaint yourself with the area's marvelous views, lush vegetation, and peaceful natural ambiance, all in the company of a knowledgeable guide.

Begin at the incredible Vista do Rei viewpoint, which offers magnificent views of the Sete Cidades' twin lakes. Learn about the formation of this caldera, which occurred as the result of thousands of years of volcanic activity. You even hear a folkloric love story that explains the formation of the lakes.

Wide-open views of lush forests and hills covered with thick vegetation surround you from every angle throughout this 4.3-mile (7-km) hike. Walk along a dirt path that runs along the crater's rim, pausing for incredible photo opportunities as you go. The trail ends at a picturesque village before you're dropped off back to your hotel in the city center.
