Explore the most incredible landscape on the Azores by land and water, as you cycle the incredible trails and kayak on lakes in volcanic calderas on a unique, activity-filled day in stunning natural surroundings.
After you’ve been picked up at around 9 am in Ponta Delgada, you’ll head for the incredible area of Sete Cidades, an area where deep blue lakes suspended by volcanic craters lie high above the ocean, and sheer ridges and peaks over beautiful views all over the island.
You’ll head down to the bottom of the caldera, where you have time to explore the area by bike and paddle on the stunning lake itself in your own kayak.
We feel this is the best way to explore this wild, powerful landscape, by actively immersing yourself in the environment and feeling the amazing energy and beauty of the place.
After a light lunch in these surroundings, you will drive along the south coast to a place called Ferraria, where there is a totally unique bathing spot created by the formation of a small crater and volcanic fissure, around which the ocean water is heated to ideal swimming temperatures.
Take a relaxing swim in this picturesque setting to unwind from the days activities, before heading back to Ponta Delgada for the end of the tour.
