Approximately 3¼ Hours
Meals not included
From Ponta Delgada, head to the village of Fajã de Baixo to visit a pineapple plantation, where the fruit grows in greenhouses. See the different phases of the pineapple's growing cycle and taste pineapple liqueur (depending upon availability), with time for souvenir shopping afterward.
Descend into the village of Sete Cidades, named for the volcano towering above. You'll have free time for a quick coffee (at your own expense) or to stretch your legs before you continue to the Santiago Lake and Vista do Rei viewpoints.
Reach the main crater of this extinct volcano at an elevation of 1,900 feet above sea level. From the edge of the crater, eight miles in circumference, take in the magnificent view of the two lakes at the bottom. One is blue, reflecting the sky, and the other is bright green, reflecting its beautiful setting within the crater walls.
Return to Ponta Delgada upon completion of your tour.
No guarantee is offered concerning visibility or views on any particular day, as weather and atmospheric conditions vary and are beyond the tour operator's control. In case of poor visibility, this tour will visit the Antonio Borges Garden in Ponta Delgada rather than the viewpoint.
