Departing from Ponta Delgada, explore the west side of the island on a 4WD Jeep Tour, where volcanic craters gave rise to numerous lakes such as Empadadas, Santiago Lake and, of course, the emblematic Blue and Green waters of Sete Cidades Lake, all of them surrounded by lush vegetation. Along the way you can contemplate the landscape through several viewpoints like Carvão and Vista do Rei. On the highest point of the mountain, take one of the most scenic trails of the world - Cumeeiras trail - to the volcano cone and go inside the crater to get out in the village of Sete Cidades. After a stop for a good typical Azorean lunch add some adventure to your Azores visit and explore the massif of Serra de Água de Pau. See Lagoa do Fogo that's situated in an unspoiled natural area classified by the European Commission as a Special Area of Conservation. For those who enjoy the pleasures of what nature has to offer we have Caldeira Velha, an amazing warm waterfall flowing to a natural pool were you can enjoy a dip.

What an amazing tour. Sergio was timely, informative and fun. Sergio knew the area so well and kept the tour fun. Lunch was so yummy and he anticipated all our needs. I would highly recommend taking this tour and seeing the sights. We loved every minute and were amazed at the beauty of the island. I hope to visit again and if I do Sergio is my first call.
