Full description
Starting at your hotel or accommodation you will head to the pineapple greenhouse plantation for a unique visit. Then traveling the southern coast, toward Ponta Delgada to break at the Pico do Carvao viewpoint where you may admire the north and south coasts with its breathtaking scenery. 

Continue to Canary Lake viewpoint to gaze upon the Seven Cities Volcano and the majestic mountains that form the crater rim. Next, you will hit the road towards the King's view, perhaps the most famous viewpoint of Azores and begin to drive into the interior of the volcano, admiring the winding road that leads to the small Santiago Lake.

Stop at the Parish of Seven Cities, for a traditional lunch at a typical restaurant and take in the sense of peace and freshness this parish emits. Starter, main course, dessert and coffee drinks are included in this lunch. After lunch is time to leave the interior of this magnificent volcano.

Travel to the Escalvado scenic viewpoint where you may admire the village of Mosteiros and Ponta da Ferraria. Contemplating the magnificent road surrounded by hydrangeas, plantains, azaleas and other flowers so characteristic of the Azores. Next, pass the black sand beaches in the direction of the Barrosa Peak, where you can first view the Fire Lake and the most western point on the island of Sao Miguel, with the Seven Cities as a backdrop. Then, begin descending to the north coast, stopping at the Fire Lake viewpoint for a glimpse of this magnificent turquoise lake.

A leisurely stop at Caldeira Velha where you can enjoy the hot springs heated naturally by the heat of the volcano, the famous cascade of hot water and all tropical vegetation, which provides magnificent photographs for later recall. In addition, stop at Ribeira Grande City, where you may visit the historical center and the Liquors Factory and store, for a test of all the liquors that are produced there.

Finally, time to take back to the road and return to your hotel, storing in memory so much beauty, wishing that everything was great and that you have been dazzled by this small paradise, lost somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic.
