Full day Safari


Drive by 4WD vehicle and explore the wild lakes and natural wonders of the area. Start the tour in Ponta Delgada heading to central massif volcanic of Água de Pau to visit the volcanic cones adjacent to the main "Volcano of Fire" where are nested lakes surrounded by wild lush vegetation without any humam intervention since some of them stills unknow even for the local people.
Although the tour is in a 4WD vehicle, to truly experience the best scenery, it may be necessary to take short walks along steep terrain. For this reason, take care to bring hiking boots and walking sticks if needed. You will be rewarded for your effort with incredible views and a great vantage point for observing birds and other wildlife.

Start the tour in Ponta Delgada and go to explore wild nature in São Miguel Island along back roads to discover hidden lakes and natural wonders. See the volcanoes, moutains and admire flora and fauna.

A Recent Review of this tour

Fabulous tour of the Island of San Miguel. We had signed up for the Wild Lakes tour but Sergio warned us that it would be muddy and strenuous and was happy to change the tour to fit our needs. The six of us in our group fell in the love with this beautiful island in the Azores and had an amazing day thanks to Sergio! Great lunch too!
