What you can expect

Take a journey to west São Miguel and immerse yourself in some of the island's most immense beauty during a half-day trip to Sete Cidades. Enjoy breath-taking sights from some of the region's belvederes, or architectural structures designed to take advantage of the scenic views.

After convenient pick-up from your hotel or the tourism office, set off in a comfortable jeep or van towards the parish of Sete Cidades, at the island's west end. Located at the centre of a massive volcanic crater, the site's twin lakes are characterised by shimmering blue-green water that reflects the sky above.

During you journey, listen as your guide tells a romantic folkloric tale that explains the formation of the blue and green lakes. Make a stop at Ferraria, where you can enjoy the unique experience of taking a dip in hot ocean water in a natural thermal pool that's heated by the forces of nature.

During your return journey, enjoy a few stops that show you the area's most interesting hidden spots. Photo opportunities are abundant all along the way. Your experience ends with drop-off back at your hotel or the tourism office.
