Strap up your boots and grab your sense of adventure, we’re heading out on a spectacular journey on foot through the Azores’ stunning natural landscapes. After a 30-minute drive across São Miguel island, we’ll arrive at Vista do Rei, a breathtaking viewpoint considered one of the seven wonders of Portugal, famous for its magnificent views of the Sete Cidades caldera. Also called the King’s View, from here we’ll not only be awed by panoramic views of two dazzling alpine lakes, but also begin our two-hour moderate-level hike at the nearby trailhead. Set out alongside an expert guide across steep pathways, passing the 3-mile-wide crater and verdant forest environs dappling the island’s western coast. Along the way, hear the fascinating geothermal and geographical history of the region while identifying native flora and fauna. The trek concludes at the quaint village of Sete Cidades on the western edge of Blue Lake, where we’ll enjoy a 15-minute cool down before being transported back to port.
