Description

Hiking Tour – Sete Cidades

The adventure begins in Ponta Delgada, where we go towards Pico do Carvão. This trail, which is about 5 Km long, starts at the entrance of Mata do Canário, it joins two sections of pre-existing trails and allows you to discover the various lakes in the western part of the island of São Miguel. In the first part of the walking tour, it’s possible to find ground vegetation, mainly grasses, and it is also possible to see the Muro das Nove Janelas, an ancient aqueduct which carried water to Ponta Delgada.

After an ascent through an area where the terrain is more irregular, we can observe a large part of the West side of the island, as well as the collapsed crater of Sete Cidades. From this location, in days of really good weather, one can see a large part of the island of São Miguel. When we return to Ponta Delgada, it is possible to stop at the Viewpoint of Vista do Rei, where you will find a magnificent landscape to the Lagoa Azul and Lagoa Verde .
