Venture onto the Lake of Sete Cidades, one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. Savor breathtaking natural scenery aboard your canoe on a lake embedded in the crater of an amazing volcano.

In a full package that brings together energy, bliss, and fun, we activate the adrenaline thanks to this jeep tour. The activity combines a route through dirt tracks with the sense of freedom possible in bike rides and, also, with the adorable laziness of a kayak experience in the lagoon. From the transcendent heights we will descend towards the small town with its gracious peninsula spread along the water and, then, will set to explore the fantastic scenery that surrounds it. The multi-coloured soil and slopes; the clearings opened for walks at the sound of the running water and of the vibrating breeze; the flickering reflections of the sky and of the banks; the silent calmness of a place where the pure air covers the valley…

What people are saying about Azores

This was such a great experience! Our guide was incredibly informative, the views were incredible and the tasting was the perfect amount of food, as well as delicious. Definitely bring an extra swimsuit and/or an extra set of clothes and a towel for the kayaking - and sunscreen! There is a steep downhill at the end, which may be hard for people with bad knees. Highly recommend and an incredible value.

Upon arrival, the kayak was ready to take it. The meeting point was easy to find and the attention was very good. As for the experience on the lake, it was spectacular, we went through the 4 seasons in an hour but the navigation was simple and fun. we enjoyed a lot
