Itinerary

This activity starts and ends in the village of Sete Cidades, one of the places with the most beautiful natural landscapes on the west side of the island of São Miguel (approximately 30 minutes by car from the city of 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!

To start, we will cross over the bridge that divides the Blue and the Green lakes, and enjoy the lakeside view going to the Peninsula and the peaceful picnic area of Baía do Silencio (“Bay of Silence“). Heading back to the bridge along easy dirt tracks, get ready for a long and steep ascent on the main road, along which you can stop at the viewpoints of Lagoa de Santiago (“Santiago Lagoon“) and Cerrado das Freiras (“Nuns Haven”).

We continue onwards and upwards, till finally reaching the Viewpoint of Vista do Rei (“Kings’ View“) for a panoramic view of the Blue and Green Lakes below as well as the now-abandoned “Monte Palace” hotel. Then, a more adventurous trail that takes us along along Cumeeira Pequena (“Small Summit Rim“).

Passing the Lomba do Vasco Viewpoint we will finish the tour descending to the heart of the village of Sete Cidades, passing by the Church Matriz de São Nicolau, leading us back to the start point.
