About the Experience

Sete Cidades is part of Portugal’s Seven Wonders, and while hiking there, you can truly understand why. On this trip, we will take you to one of the most beautiful lakes around São Miguel island, and a must-see while on holidays in the Azores. From Ponta Delgada, we will head West after the pick-up around 9am or 2pm depending on what you prefer.

The starting point of this walk is the amazing Vista do Rei belvedere, where we learn about the geological formation of the caldera of Sete Cidades. Next, we start walking the dirt path along the rim of the crater. The views are wide and open – to the right, we can see the caldera and the twin lakes; to the left, we have the sea and several coastal villages. The trail ends in the center of the village, where we will take the van to drop you off back in Ponta Delgada.
