The walk (ca 12km) was indeed relaxing and offered superb views on the lakes, incl. during a very tasty picnic lunch. Our guide Hugo was extremely nice and attentive. I am extremely happy that I have chosen to do this hike/trail.
This was a wonderful day. From the moment I was picked up at a meeting point to the return, I found the walking demanding not beyond me at all, but it did involve some very steep inclines as we climbed the side of the crater but exhilarating. Sao Miguel is famous for cloud cover, so we caught glimpses of the lakes - sometimes - but that was part of the fun. Our guide was full of information and very helpful. We saw a LOT of cows. Sao Miguel is beautiful.
