6h Combo Tour - Lunch included
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.

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Sergio planned the perfect route for us as he showed us the island as only a well informed local could. We went to places that a big bus could not go and had an awesome included lunch at a small local restaurant. So much better then Cruise ship excursions. Would highly recommend to others and would use again if I return. Thanks Sergio for the fantastic six hours we spent with you, you are number 1 in our book.
