Is there anything missing for a perfect vacation? Let yourself be bewitched by the charms of Dragon Island in this specially designed package for yourself, for you and your soul mate and/or friends.

 

Descend waterfalls, enjoy the fresh air when visiting our Fajãs and discover the island on foot, bike and quad bike. Adventure into new experiences during the day and spend the night in paradise and pampering yourself with the magnificent sunsets with your partner or your friends. This is how you can spend your 2 escapade days if you decide to spend it with us.

 

This island is known for its high cliffs with white houses on the coast (the Fajãs) and for the hospitality of its inhabitants. So this is a place that deserves the honour of your visit...and we will be honoured by it.

day 1

We begin the program with a Bike Tour, starting at Pedro’s Peak (Pico do Pedro) and ending by the sea, at Fajã do Ouvidor. This route leads us through some of the highest points of the volcanic complex of São Jorge island where we find craters of extinct volcanoes with beautiful lagoons populated with fish of a reddish colour. We will still observe the endemic flora, typical of this region. It stands out the rarest orchid of Europe, the Platanthera Azorica that can be found in the Hope’s Peak (Pico da Esperança).

 

At mountain range of São Jorge island which reaches 1,056mts altitude at Hope’s Peak (Pico da Esperança), one can enjoy panoramic views of São Jorge and the other islands of the Central Group.

 

This tour ends at Fajã do Ouvidor, by the sea. This Fajã stands out for its geological formations by the coast, generally denominated by "Poças". These volcanic formations originated natural swimming pools that in turn formed excellent bathing areas. The biggest and best known is the Poça Simão Dias.

 

Before lunch, you may refresh yourself in the beautiful natural pools of the Poça Simão Dias and observe the prismatic formations that surround the lagoons.

 

We will take a lunch and rest break before moving on to paradise break.

Special Pack 2 days- Passion 2 Adventure - São Jorge Island - Azores

In the afternoon we will go to the starting point of the walking tour. This route was an old connection path between the inhabitants of the Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo and the south coast of the island, namely Calheta village (Vila da Calheta).

Along the descent, we may observe a great variety of endemic plants that populate this valley. In addition to the endemic flora, there are several birds, grazing cows along the trail and goats which, after the 1980 earthquake, become wild.

In this valley there is a large hydrographic network that is noticed by the sound of the water, which intensifies as we descend along the trail. Here, the streams run all year round, due to water tables of the surrounding mountains and some plants that retain water, such as the "Mantão".

 

Upon arriving at Caldeira de Cima, we will have a first experience in adventure sports: Cascading. It is the activity of descending water cascades using rappel techniques. After this refreshing activity, we will proceed the walk to the Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo.
