Shore Excursion # 5 - Sete Cidades Crater Lakes (Twin Lakes)

Pick up at the pier, and drive towards the West direction of the island to see the most West point of the island called Ponta do Escalvaldo and see Mosteiros village from the top. Then drive through Sete Cidades village to see one of the most Azorean villages of Sao Miguel Island.

We will stop at the center of the village for the WC, coffee, and see Sete Cidades Church, with time to relax for a moment. When everyone is ready, then drive to the bridge that divides the two lakes. We will start up the Crater from the other side, stop first at Sao Tiago Lake viewpoint, and then stop at “Cerrado das Freiras” (view from a different perspective of the Twin Lakes), and then drive until we reach the Vista do Rei viewpoint to see Sete Cidades Crater Lake (blue and green lake). Then we will go to “Pico do Carvão” from that view you can see too the South and the North coast at the same time (the most flat and thinner area of the island). After that stop at the Pineapple Plantation, and then back to the ship.
Note: Sao Miguel island weather may affect this itinerary and alternate sites may be visited if necessary.
