About the Experience

This tour goes through the central plateau of the island, where we can find (or are located) the wonderfull lakes, but one thing is sure, we don't leave any of the seven lakes behind. To complement this tour along the lakes, what better then to pass through one of Flores Island ex-libris, Rocha dos Bordões. For many years this was the main reason of interest for the many travelers that came to the islands of the western group. In this moment the tour is half way, but we still have some viewpoints with stunnigs views like the Craveiro Lopes, the Portal and the Lajedo. After catching our breath, we visit one of the most imposing rock in the Island, the Filão dos Frades, where you can take a picture and see for yourself the dimension of this rock. It isn't a tour in the Azores, if we didn't link the island to its past with whaling and show its roots, in the Whale Museum in the village of Lajes.
