Itinerary

This activity starts and ends on the north coast of the island, near the famous Areal de Santa Bárbara beach in the town of Ribeira Grande ( approximately 20 minutes by car from Ponta Delgada). At the starting point, we conduct a safety briefing and a demonstration of how to use the electric bicycle and all its functions, which takes about 15 minutes, and then distribute the equipment. Once we finish, we are ready to embark on a memorable adventure!

We begin by heading directly to the ‘heart’ of Ribeira Grande, where we will have the opportunity to pass through some of the parishes in this municipality. We will learn the history, culture, and traditions manifested in geosites such as the ‘Fontanário da Ribeira Seca‘, a result of a volcanic eruption whose lava flows buried part of the parish of Ribeira Seca. We also observe the architecture of many ancient buildings, as the Espírito Santo Church, the building Paços do Concelho and the Bridge Oito Arcos.

We continue our adventure surrounded by nature and accompanied by the sound of water from various springs that lead us to the Fajã do Redondo Dam. At Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande, we explore the volcanic activity area, where we find hot water springs used by the spa and an area used for cooking “cozido” and other local dishes which are slowly cooked by natural heat.

Moving on to our next stop, the Coroa da Mata Viewpoint, we travel along secondary paths surrounded by a variety of flowers and trees, enjoying panoramic views. We continue to explore the lush landscapes resulting from volcanic eruptions on the north coast of the island, passing by the Santa Iria Viewpoint, the Santa Iria port, and the Cintrão point where the lighthouse is located. We will return along a dirt path along the coast, observing the unforgettable landscape until we are back on the city streets.
