Full description
Venture onto the Lake of Sete Cidades, one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. Savor breathtaking natural scenery aboard your canoe on a lake embedded in the crater of an amazing volcano. According to an ancient legend, this stunning lake was the result of a failed love story between a shepherd and a princess who were not meant to be together. The last time they met, the princess, who had blue eyes, cried so much that the Blue Lake was formed, while the shepherd's tears gave birth to the Green Lake. Admire the mystical colors of the 2 lakes located on the western part of São Miguel Island, and paddle your canoe out on the Blue Lake. Have fun canoeing for 30 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours, depending on the option selected.

Upon arrival, the kayak was ready to take it. The meeting point was easy to find and the attention was very good. As for the experience on the lake, it was spectacular, we went through the 4 seasons in an hour but the navigation was simple and fun. we enjoyed a lot

A very pleasant walk with spectacular views. Everything was well organized, when we arrived they had the kayaks ready and although I only said that there were 2 of us, we rode with the 8-year-old boy and with him, but without a problem. All are kayak of 3 or 1.

The hostess was super helpful and flexible, letting us delay the activity for the time being. The tour itself was spectacular, with breathtaking views and peaceful, relaxed surroundings. At the end of the tour we had a conversation with another host, who recommended several places outside the traditional tourist route.
