The trail will start at Ribeira Funda (belonging to the parish of Fenais da Ajuda), where you will be constantly in direct contact with incredible coastal landscapes and the typical nature and vegetation of the island of São Miguel. This specific tour is full of history and memories transcribed in photographic and informational panels that remind us of our ancestors and their customs, as well as multiple ruins of ancient watermills and small but impressive waterfalls. On the way, we will cross the remote Praia da Viola beach, which will easily restore your energy levels even if you just stop for a while to rest and enjoy the soothing sounds that surround you. From here, we will continue our trail along coastal cliffs towards the end of this adventure at the Fishing Port of Calhau D’Areia beach, in the serene and peaceful parish of Maia. Here we will enjoy our picnic-style lunch and take a dip in the ocean and snorkel if the weather and sea conditions permit. We will end the day by paying a visit to Gorreana Tea Factory. NOTE: The trail can be quite steep and slippery in some areas. Break time to enjoy a picnic lunch (provided), a couple of hours of hiking, and time to swim and snorkel (provided) and/or relax at the end of the tour.
