Detailed description

Quad Tour to the Sete Cidades Volcanic Crater in São Miguel, Azores Island

The Vista do Rei viewpoint at the Sete Cidades caldera is around 300 metres high. From up there, you have a wonderful view of the unique lake landscape of this day trip destination in São Miguel. And you can see very well from up there why one lake is called Lagoa Verde (green) and the other Lagoa Azul (blue). It is almost unreal colours that shimmer through the special landscape and make this Sete Cidades Quad Tour such a spectacular experience.

Our route from Ponta Delgada takes us to all the little wonders of this crater landscape off the west coast of Sao Miguel. The Ponta Delgada Quad Tour leads us through Canada Goyanes, Muro das 9 Janelas, Pico da cruz, Cumeeira norte vista do miradouro, Seara and of course to the village of the same name, Vila das Sete Cidades. There, for lunch, we will familiarise ourselves with the local cuisine of the Azores, before heading to Pico do Carvão via the Bay of Tranquillity and the famous Lagoa das Sete Cidades bridge in the second part. From here we can view the entire island ridge.

The Sete Cidades Quad bike Tour is a real adventure, with off-road sections to keep you happy, but above all it delights with concentrated impressions of a magical natural landscape of the Azores.
