    The Volcanic Complex of Sete Cidades has the largest surface reserve of freshwater of the Azores, so it is an important transit point for migratory birds. With an area of 2173ha of protected landscape it is formed by a caldera with 5,3km in diameter. The landscape is dominated by the Sete Cidades Lake, separated by the "Rêgos" bridge. Inside the Caldera find Lagoa de Santiago.

    In a 4WD vehicle ride through the south rim of the volcano (when security conditions are guaranteed) in a land route where you can contemplate the stunning natural beauty. Go down to the inside of this sleeping volcano where you will find the picturesque parish of Sete Cidades.

    The course on/off road may vary according to climate conditions.
