Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Caldeira das Sete Cidades, an important source of fresh water for the islands, provides a subtropical oasis of green hills, dense forests, and foggy bluffs. Formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption followed by another in 1445, the area is actually a large volcanic crater. The resulting land offers an array of flora and fauna. Take one of the trails that will lead you up to the top of the crater, where you'll observe numerous lakes, the ocean, and the quaint town within.

  • An absolutely stunning place. We participated in a trail run around the crater with a hefty ascent through the jungle up to the rim but the views once you're there is breathtaking (mind you, so was the climb but in another way). Absolutely gorgeous to run along the rim and have the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the crater lake the other. Priceless...
  • Amazing views above the clouds. Just have to know how to avoid the crowds.
