Van tour to Sete Cidades - half day


A van tour is a comfortable way of discovering the beauty of the island. On this half-day trip you will have the opportunity to see some of the most scenic lakes of São Miguel within the volcanic complex of Sete Cidades. In Sete Cidades you will enjoy the many wonderful views from some of the region’s belvederes (architectural structures sited to take advantage of the scenic views) as well as discover the ancient love story behind the formation of the green and blue lakes. A highlight of this tour is a stop at Ferraria where you can enjoy the unique experience of bathing in hot ocean water within a natural thermal pool that is heated by the forces of nature.
