Leaving Ponta Delgada by the way of the coastal road through the western part of the city, you will pass through a number of very picturesque villages before arriving at Feteiras. From here the route ascends towards Sete Cidades until the main crater of this extinct volcano, some 1,900 feet above sea level is reached.

From the edge of this crater, eight miles in circumference, there is a magnificent view of the two lakes at the bottom. One is blue, reflecting the sky, and the other bright green due to the beautiful setting of the crater walls which are rich in vegetation.

The return journey is made through the new road, stopping at the famous Antonio Borges Botanical Garden, where there is a remarkable collection of European ant Tropical trees.

Continuing to the suburb of Abelheira, another stop is made at a Pineapple Plantation, where the complete process of cultivation and marketing of this fruit will be explained.

Your tour will take you back to Ponta Delgada.

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 0.50 mile over even surfaces with 5 - 10 steps at the Pineapple Plantation.
