  • This morning, you’ll be met by your driver-guide to venture northwest of Ponta Delgada to Sete Cidades, a caldera known for its twin lakes. You’ll spend the morning exploring the area by bicycle and 4x4 before returning to your hotel. Later, you’ll head to the marina for a shared whale-watching tour.
