Azores Bike Tour 1 Along the Shores of the Lakes
This bike ride takes you along the shores of two famously beautiful lakes: the Verde (green) lake and the Azul (blue) lake. The shores are lined with tranquil woodland and wild flowers in season. From there it is on to the picturesque town of Sete Cidades with its unusual architecture and the 19th century neo-gothic Church surrounded by verdant pastureland. The route also takes in more impressive and interesting places such as the Tunnel, Silence Bay and the Peninsula. It offers fantastic views and is mainly along the flat so it is one of the easiest bike tours and suitable for everyone.

Azores Bike Tour 2 The Mountain Top

It has formed in volcanic craters and is constituted by two lakes (the Green Lake and the Blue Lake) and is a place of outstanding natural beauty.

The chance to explore little known trails. Beginning at Monte Escuro, we follow trails that are fun and challenging though somewhat difficult at times making it necessary to carry the bike occassionally. As the trail winds through the countryside you'll pass many interesting places and magnificent scenery. The final destination, Lagoa do Fogo, is one of Sao Miguel's most breathtaking sites. Set in the crater of an extinct volcano, the huge Fogo lake of clear waters even has its own beach!

A full day mountain bike tour of Sete Cidades with picnic lunch included. The 5 hour tour covers approximately 25 km and will take you through the west of São Miguel to the dramatic volcanic scenery of Sete Cidades. During the tour you will have the opportunity to learn about the fauna, flora, history, volcanic formation of the island, and of course, you will hear the legendary love story behind the formation of the lake. Along the route as you pedal across the rim of the craters you will have superb views over the several lakes in the region as well as the adjacent coastline. Lunch is on the shore of the Blue Lake of Sete Cidades. At the end of the journey, weather and time permitting, it is possible to bathe in the ocean at Ferraria, where the sea water is naturally heated by the volcano. This tour is €65 per person including lunch.

Each bike tour includes an experienced local guide, bike hire, personal accident and liability insurance. All you need to enjoy an unforgettable Azores bike ride is energy, enthusiasm, gloves, suitable cycling clothes, sunglasses and, possibly a light waterproof jacket or sunscreen depending on the time of year.
