About the Experience

It is not very usual to start a trail in the centre of a village, but in this case it makes all sense, once just after we go through a path where we can imagine how inhabitants life was in Fajã Grande, Cuada and Fajãzinha. After realizing how whale watching was made, we follow along our path, crossing a farm that had a big production once and is nowadays recovering its strength. Upon arriving at Fajãzinha, after crossing a bridge, we can taste high quality cheese. After this we arrive to the climax of this journey: The waterfalls of Poço da Ribeirado Ferreiro. With an imposing landscape, the constant gushing water seems to have been placed there by someone with a remarkable imagination. We return through a path that will not allow us to see the ocean, which is not an easy thing to happen on an island. The end of the trail asks for a swim in the fresh water of Poço do Bacalhau, and you will feel ready for a new adventure.
