Hike up to Pico da Vara with your guide and reach the highest point of São Miguel island!
With your hiking guide, start a 7-hour adventure from the Planalto dos Graminhais, and enjoy beautiful moments while surrounded by native vegetation. See the wind turbines that produce part of the green energy of the island and enjoy the views of a protected area's biodiversity as you walk. Along the way, take the time to admire the older volcanic complexes of São Miguel, looking over the beautiful landscape of Povoação Caldeira and reach Pico da Vara.
From this highest point, enjoy dazzling views of São Miguel at 1,103m above the sea leave. When ready to leave this amazing scenery, follow the path down and continue in the direction of the park of Ribeira dos Caldeirões, before returning to Ponta Delgada along the same path you took.
During this moderately difficult hike, you will be able to regain your strength with a picnic lunch.
