Amazing place to visit, green and blue lake, couldn't believe that you could see that in on photo or one view. We took a tour of the area with Harmony tours Azores and our tour guide explained the area, just amazing.

The drive from Ponta Delgada to Sete Cidades takes you on roads that progress among dense fields of hortensiae flowers. Once you arrive, the view from the top towards the two lagoons is very beautiful. Take your time and drive slow.

This place is one of the best landscapes I have ever seen. Try to go on a day with a clear sky and visit the several viewpoints to have different perspectives of the lagoons.

These are such amazing views, we did the Vista Do Rei by foot, and it was amazing (too bad many cars pass by on the gravel road) standing on the edge of the crater, seeing the lake at on side and the ocean at the other, with hydrangeas everywere...

Visiting the Sete Cidades crater lakes was the highpoint of our trip to the Azores. Magnificent views, gorgeous scenery, and an abundance of birds and other wildlife

The view is unique and outstanding. Before you drive to there ask your hotel what is the condition of the view on the mountain. Stop almost for all the Miradors. Most of the people come to the azores to enjoy this place

This is such a beautiful place to visit that mere adjectives cannot begin to describe all the beauty and magic of the place! If you are lucky enough to go there with excellent weather conditions you´ll find one of the most unforgettable places you´ve seen in your life!

Gorgeousness if you get a clear day. It's still amazing with the fog! This is the place of Europe's biggest Derby Rally in May. So much fun to be had.

This is so beautiful and so unique, certainly one of the most beautiful nature spots I have ever seen. Pity that often fog soils the view... make sure it is clear before you go. If you drive yourself, be VERY careful, the road is very narrow with lots of curves.

We toured the entire site by car and enjoyed incredible views from higher points along a road that occasionally was not much larger than a foot path. Pray you don't meet anyone coming the other way at one of such points ;-) Foot paths around the lakes afford relaxing if less spectacular views. The only regret was that we could... More
