The entire region of Sete Cidades is dominated by the impressive Caldeira of Sete Cidades, which with its 12km diameter, is the most spectacular volcanic scene in the Azores. Under the Miradouro da Vista do Rei from which King Charles I of Portugal contemplated this impressive panorama in 1901, there lie 2 volcanic lakes, the Green and the Blue Lake, separated by a narrow bridge. Together the two lakes have an area of 482 hectares, and they are 19 meters deep at their greatest depth.

On the shores of the Blue Lake is the village of Sete Cidades, enigmatic as its own name (Seven Cities) and surrounded by the dark forest covered walls of the Caldeira. In this tour you will have the opportunity to see the lakes not only from the highest point but also to admire at close quarters. On the way back to Ponta Delgada you will also have the opportunity to see the Santiago Lake which is unique in its style.

HOTEL AZORES ATLANTICO or similar

This magnificent hotel located in Ponta Delgada and overlooking the harbour bay offers an enviable view of the city's port and marina. Here a selection of the best Azorean wines and cheeses will be offered.
