The itinerary of this popular Self-guided walking holiday on São Miguel takes you through some of the most stunning scenery in the Azores and you will have two bases; Ponta Delgada and Furnas. You will have a hire car for the week and planned circular walk routes giving you complete freedom during your stay. Detailed route maps and instructions are provided so you can explore São Miguel at your leisure.
Your walks vary from 3km to 12km (2 to 4½ hours) and allow you to explore the impressive Sete Cidades crater with its twin lakes in the west of the island and the boiling Furnas Lake in the central highlands. There is also a stunning walk down from the Fire Lake, the Azores’ wildest crater lake, and a pretty walk along the south coast.
Please note that this self guided walking holiday can also be done with transfers instead of a hire car and walks will then be linear but cover similar areas of the island.
