Itinerary

At the starting point, we will give you a 15-minute safety briefing, demonstrate how to use the electric bike and GPS and then distribute the equipment. Once we’ve completed this stage, you will be ready for an exclusive adventure!

Start the tour with a relaxed warm-up, crossing the bridge that separates the Lagoa Azul from the Lagoa Verde and heading towards the shores of the Lagoa Azul. After observing the tranquility of this place, you will head back towards Cumeeira Grande, passing through the parish of Sete Cidades. Along the Cumeeira Grande, you will be amazed by the view over the sea, lakes, pastures and where you will stop at the highest point of the Sete Cidades volcanic complex, with a height of 845m.

Back on the road, you will pass throught the Nove Janelas Aqueduct, with a stop at Lagoa do Canário and, further on, the most emblematic viewpoint on the island of São Miguel, Miradouro da Grota do Inferno.

You will descend towards the Vista do Rei viewpoint for a panoramic view of the lakes, Lagoa Azul and Lagoa Verde, and also the notorious and now abandoned “Monte Palace” hotel. Then you will follow a more adventure trail that will take you along Cumeeira Pequena on a dirt road, arriving at the Lomba do Vasco viewpoint, where you can see the islets of Mosteiros and its parish.

You will end the tour by descending into the heart of the town of Sete Cidades, which will lead you to the Church of São Nicolau with its “neo-Gothic” architecture.
