  • Starting from the village of Faial from Earth, begins this trekking path in a loop, marked as medium difficulty, but short-lived, that arrives on a beautiful waterfall. The trail is very busy and once you get to the waterfall there will be a queue to take pictures. On the way back it seems to go back in time, when you arrive at the village of Sanguinho. From the village onwards the road is stone, and it is a steep descent, so it is advisable to tackle the activity with hiking shoes.

  • I enjoyed the walk to this waterfall and also the view itself once we got there. Nice place for a picnic.  more »

  • Great hike. Trail is well marked. Ending at a beautiful waterfall (water was too cold to swim in May). The hike was definitely a bit challenging for us at times (a lot of uphill), but we took breaks and in total took us 3 hours in and out. Highly recommend!
  • Not an easy one, but worth the visit. On your way back, take the upper trail above the valley. It's a bit longer but offers stunning views.
