Detailed description

Family-friendly Buggy Tour to Sete Cidades from Ponta Delgada

That the Portuguese elevated Sete Cidades in São Miguel to one of their 7 natural wonders may come as little surprise when you gaze into this fabulous landscape from the majestic Miradouro da Vista do Rei lookout. The caldera is unique and engaging - and the paths around it are worth driving in an off-road vehicle. One of the best experiences in São Miguel is a buggy tour of Sete Cidades. With more than 50 per cent off-road, everyone gets their money's worth on this day trip and is rewarded with impressive photo opportunities. At least as long as the weather plays along, which tends to change quickly in the Azores and often comes with fog, especially at high altitudes.

In general, the onion principle is recommended for a buggy tour in the Azores. And you are well advised not to wear the best trousers. You will always kick up some dust on this off-road tour around Sete Cidades. We start the Sete Cidades Buggy Tour with a safety briefing at the base in Ponta Delgada. Once you have put on your helmet and fastened your seatbelt, you follow the guide's vehicle towards the west side of the island. Along the way, you will pass Pico do Carvão, Canário Lake, the northern and southern ridges of Sete Cidades, Silence Bay and many other outstanding examples of the natural landscape. Stop for a traditional lunch of Azorean kitchen.
