Pick up from your hotel is at 9am. Transfer to Sete Cidades by jeep. On the way to Sete Cidades we take several off road tracks of which some are used by local farmers. These roads pass by several spots that are only accesible by 4x4 and should not be missed as they contain some outstanding views over the coast and parts of São Miguel Island. Included are stops in Pico do Carvão, Empadadas lakes, and Vista do Rei (the famous King's viewpoint). After this adventurous and fun ride we reach the lake at the bottom of Sete Cidades crater. Here we have a picnic lunch along the mystic lake shore where you have time to relax and be amazed by the surrounding scenery. After lunch we emerge in an activity "back to the past". We also bake fresh bread and biscuits, milk a cow, plough the earth and participate in traditional activities and games. This is a fun-filled day that is perfect for anybody wanting to connect with nature and the island’s local traditions. Drop off at your hotel is around 6pm.
