Full description
Departing from Ponta Delgada, you will drive towards the most western part of the island, where the mountains and lagoon of the Sete Cidades are located. A small stop will be made at the viewpoint of Vista do Rei, one of the most important panoramic views of the island, from where one can observe the famous lagoon, asleep inside a huge volcanic crater. Visit the village of the Sete Cidades, an authentic portrait of rural Micaelense life. You'll off-road it along the north rim of this gigantic crater, along its fantastic, winding and uneven country road, always with an outstanding view over the largest lake of the island known for its contrasting colors. On the return to Ponta Delgada, you'll stop off to visit a pineapple plantation to learn about the peculiar way this tropical fruit is grown in the Azores.
