Start learning the history and nature of the Azores archipelago. Then, head straight to Sete Cidades, with the first stop being at Vista do Rei viewpoint (King's view), shortly after we visit the village for a small break around the lake. Sete Cidades is one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal and is considered by many the most iconic view of the Azores and surely one of Portugal as well. After Sete Cidades, we head to Mosteiros village to admire the islets and to get in touch with the culture of this small village. Shortly after we stop for lunch at a local restaurant. Right after lunch, we continue our tour through the western part of the island until we reach Capelas village to visit the iconic Port, where many years ago the locals used to depart for whale hunting. We finish the tour with a visit to the Pinneaple plantations in Ponta Delgada for a taste of the king fruit.
