    Enjoy a half-day quad tour around Sete Cidades, the largest freshwater lake in the Azores, situated in the western part of the island of São Miguel.

    My favorite activity I did while I was on the island. Our guide was amazing and super funny. The combination of on-road and off-roading made the experience unique and was able to get to view points a regular car wouldn’t be able to get to! Plus, who doesn’t love driving a quad through the narrow, hydrangea lined streets?!

    Our guide Pedro showed us many sights including those off the beaten path as our buggy was able to go wherever needed.

This experience was literally to the sky and back! Amazing! Beautiful spots that can only be accessed with the Quads and beautiful breathtaking views of the island, the crater and the Ocean!

Ruben was a fantastic tour guide. Note - the air is much cooler on the drive up to Sete Cidades than other parts of the island. A long-sleeve shirt plus a windbreaker is a must!

This tour was really fun, exceptionally beautiful, and full of adventure. We even got to ride our ATVs through a herd of cows coming down the road.

We had a great day discovering this part of Saô Miguel in the company of a friendly and attentive guide.

Highly recommended!! Amazing ride and excellent guide ;)
