What To Expect
Did you know that the Azores Islands are famous for having the best pineapples in the world? The country may not export its produce, but that makes the pineapples from the land all the more rare and renowned. You will get to see the pineapple plantations, and maybe even bring back a pineapple to your hotel! You also get the rare chance of tasting the pineapple liquor locally made in the site.
We then pass to Pico do Carvao, formed by a geological accident. Its highest point is 813 meters above sea level and offers a fantastic view of the Carvao Lake, Caldeirao Lake and Achadas Lake. Feel on top of the world as you survey both the north and south cost of Sao Miguel Island from above!
Our next stop is the Vista do Rei viewpoint, with a fantastic view of the twin kissing lakes, which according to legend were formed by the endless tears of two lovers who were forced to part in Sete Cidades. On our descent, we get to admire the Santiago lake, one of the most tranquil bodies of water in the site, with a deep blue hue that will take your imagination away. Finally, we return you to your hotel in Ponta Delgada.
