Full description
Venture onto the Lake of Sete Cidades, one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. Savor breathtaking natural scenery aboard your canoe on a lake embedded in the crater of an amazing volcano. According to an ancient legend, this stunning lake was the result of a failed love story between a shepherd and a princess who were not meant to be together. The last time they met, the princess, who had blue eyes, cried so much that the Blue Lake was formed, while the shepherd's tears gave birth to the Green Lake. Admire the mystical colors of the 2 lakes located on the western part of São Miguel Island, and paddle your canoe out on the Blue Lake. Have fun canoeing for 30 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours, depending on the option selected.

A anfitriã foi super atenciosa e flexível, deixando-nos atrasar a actividade no momento. O passeio em si foi espectacular, com vistas de perder o fôlego e num ambiente pacífico e descontraído. No final do percurso ficámos a conversa com outro anfitrião, que nos recomendou vários sítios fora do roteiro turístico tradicional.

The guy who attended us was very kind and friendly. We were very happy because there was punctual delivery of the canoe. They were dry and clean. I recommend 100%!

It was unclear what the canoe was rented out. So we accidentally used another company and therefore paid twice.
