£80 adult £47 child
Split into two halves, this full day trip takes you on a tour of the interior of the island. The first part, exploring the wonders of Sete Cidades region aboard a jeep. You will take dirt roads and go to places only accessible by 4×4 to enjoy the most beautiful views. You will descend towards the small town of Sete Cidades from height, with its gracious peninsula spread along the water and go on to explore the fantastic scenery that surrounds it. After lunch in a local restaurant, you will stop at the activity centre by the lakes where you have the opportunity to try your hand kayaking or going for a bike ride.
Water activities are for ages 8 and above.
On Monday we did the inland tour of Sete Cidades, cycling round the crater and kayaking on the lake. The guides were both really informative, and this was a fantastic introduction to the island. The cycle ride was not too hard and the kayaking was about the right length for us as it was a windy day. The views from the top were clear and it was a really great adventure – I would thoroughly recommend this trip for families.
The buffet lunch on the Sete Citades trip was really excellent with a good choice even though we tend not to eat meat. We also enjoyed the choice of activities on that trip with a short cycle trip and then chance to kayak on the blue/green lakes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
The tours to Furnas and Sete Cidades were really impressive and showed what a beautiful and unique place the island is. We really felt that we got to know the island really well and the local tour guides ensured that we saw as much as possible.
