About Your Sete Cidades Hiking Tour

The day begins with a visit to the traditional pineapple plantations on São Miguel, where together we discover the process developed in these glasshouses. We then continue towards Sete Cidades in the western part of the island.

We start walking through the Nove Janelas (the old aqueduct), where we cross a dense Japanese cedar forest (cryptomeria japonica) for 1 km. We continue for 9 km on the top edge of the crater, where you have the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful views of the island.

We make a stop to enjoy a picnic for lunch. Once the walk around the crater ends, we descend on a 2 km levada, a path rich in vegetation with incredible shades of green, to reach the parish of Sete Cidades.

We take a break to rest, and if you like, you can swim in the beautiful blue lagoon. We then return to Ponta Delgada.
