Walking Trail the Mountain to the Sea

Discover São Jorge Island Hikking on our Walking Trails, surrounded by the natural beauty of this island of the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic.

This tour takes us from the mountain at an altitude of 650m to sea level. It is a route that in the past was used by our ancestors as a link between Calheta and Topo, passing through some villages, on the south coast of São Jorge Island.

Walking Trail From de Mountain to the Sea in São Jorge Island in Azores

Along the hike we have several views of the fajãs along the coast, including Fajã dos Bodes and Fajã dos Vimes, the latter that will be our destination.

Throughout the tour you can observe a diversity of plants endemic to the Laurissilva forest existing in these lands and with luck we see the wild goats that populate the southern slopes that together with the cows, give a special color to the landscape.


It is a medium level tour, with a permanent view of the islands of the triangle, where Pico mountain stands out. We will pass through 4 fajãs and end at Fajã dos Vimes with a coffee tasting that is produced in this fajã and with a visit to the coffee plantation.
