Discover the Sete Cidades area and a wealth of beautiful natural scenery on Sao Miguel Island with this exhilarating buggy tour. An unforgettable off-road adventure!
When making your booking, you can choose either of the two following routes:
Half-day tour (4 hours)
Leaving from Ponta Delgada, the capital of Sao Miguel, we'll jump on board our buggies and head to the north-west of the island. Venturing through the natural green inland countryside, we'll reach the crater of the Sete Cidades volcano, with breathtaking views of the blue and green lagoons- one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal.
We'll stop at various viewpoints to really take in the impressive lagoon surroundings, and once we've enjoyed the incredible panoramic views, we'll climb back on our buggies and return to the meeting point.
Full-day tour (8 hours)
The first part of this tour will be exactly the same as the half-day option, but after visiting the crater and the north-eastern lagoons of Sao Miguel, we'll head towards the Baia do Silêncio bay, where we'll take a break and replenish our energy with a buffet lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, we'll set off for the famous cliffs of Punta Ferraria, one of the most incredible sights on the island's coast. Finally, we'll make our way back to where we started in Ponta Delgada, taking in the amazing scenery as we finish our adrenaline-filled adventure.
