Length: 12.6 mi • Est. 6 h 47 m
A walk through the Seven Cities lagoons: Blue Lagoon, Green Lagoon and Santiago Lagoon. Most of the trail is on a dirt road, ending with a bit of paved road. Spectacular views of the lakes and the coast. The abandoned hotel is definitely worth a visit - be careful when investigating the building.Show more

Length: 4.9 mi • Est. 2 h 36 m
This trail begins next to the Pico Vermelho Geothermal Power Station, passes the Salto do Cabrito Hydroelectric Power Station and ends at the Ribeira Grande Caldeiras (hot springs). The trail starts just by the “Lagoa do Fogo” restaurant. A little further on, take a left turn along a dirt path, which goes past a wood of Victorian box, acacia, Japanese red cedar and eucalyptus trees. You can see the Ribeira Grande valley to your right from various points along this path. After walking for approximately 1 km, you will come to the Salto do Cabrito Hydroelectric Power Station; here you can turn off the main path and near the stream you can see the impressive waterfall which gives its name to the power station. Return to the main path, climb the steps there, and cross the walkway above the water pipes until you reach the Fajã do Redondo Hydroelectric Power Station, which is no longer in operation. Continue along the trail until you reach a dirt road, where you should turn right, and then continue ahead for about 500 metres. At the end you will come to an asphalt road where, if you turn left, you will come to the Ribeira Grande Caldeiras, where the trail ends. There are a number of hot springs in this area, and you can enjoy typical dishes at the traditional restaurant there.Show more

The Levada do Moinho starts on Lombada da Ponta do Sol, near the Church of the Lombada. At the beginning of this trail stand out the well cultivated farmland, providing a pleasant sight to walkers. Among them stand out the fantastic panoramic views of the valley and the beautiful village of Ponta do Sol, that this route offers us. Enjoy the walk and all that it has to offer. Delight yourself with the sights, the endemic flora and fauna and waterfalls. By the end of the route you can climb the path that leads to the Levada Nova. Once there, follow the opposite direction until you reach the impressive waterfall of this Levada. It is certainly a fascinating vision that deserves a few moments of contemplation before continuing. You can continue the path by Levada Nova, although it is important to know that there are several areas with abyss and no protection, so is not recommended for inexperienced hikers. The return is made by the same route, arriving back at the Church of the Lombada.Show more
