Canoeing and Horseback Riding in Sao Miguel: Explore the fun way with a canoe and horseback ride through pure and bountiful Azores nature.
* Canoe across Lagoa das Furnas
* Enjoy a horseback ride near Livramento
* Combine two exciting ways to discover the Azores
São Miguel is an island of lakes and volcanic landscapes that are simply breathtaking. Take a tour off the beaten track by canoe and horse for an experience in nature that will leave you in awe of this island that never stops giving.
We begin with a canoeing trip across the Lagoa das Furnas, in the heart of São Miguel’s volcanic landscape. Make a short stop to enjoy the volcanic phenomena of fumaroles and boiling waters, whose temperatures are hot enough for locals to cook stews (Cozido) in the ground.
After lunch in Furnas, we travel to Quinta da Terça in Livramento. Using secondary roads flanked by old dry stone walls, on horseback we amble towards “Mata Santa”. Revel in the variety of flora on show, and pass by the resting place of the patron saint of animals. This is a tour for those who want to experience the Azores, not just see it.
