This is an easy paced family cycling holiday in the Azores, located almost in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The volcanic origins of the islands are reflected in the mountains and valleys covered by a rich and varied vegetation, lakes in ancient volcano craters, natural swimming pools by the sea, black sandy beaches, active steaming fumaroles, and thermal hot water cascades and fountains.
Your trip starts following your arrival into Ponta Delgada, which is situated on the largest of the Azores islands, Sao Miguel or as it is more commonly known, The Green Island. It is here that you will spend your first few days, exploring the trails on the west side of the island. These include the volcanic complex of Sete Cidades, with its amazing Blue and Green lakes and heated pools of Ferraria where your family can enjoy a swim.
This holiday is more than just cycling though - we have planned in a day's hiking in Faial da Terra, where you can swim in a waterfall! We have also arranged an exciting day offering something slightly different for your family. In the morning, you'll swap your cycling shades for binoculars and head out on a boat for a spot of whale watching; later on, in the afternoon, we will take a jeep safari to Caldeira Velha, a hot waterfall where you can take a dip.
This really is a trip designed with families in mind and we're sure it'll be an unforgettable experience for children of all ages, and parents alike! If you're not travelling with a family, then we also have a self-guided and guided leisure version of this trip available.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

Graded as mellow, this holiday is designed for families who are looking for adventure and other things to see and do alongside cycling, with hiking, whale watching and a jeep safari all included. The trip is guided, so it’s great for families with younger children who are new to cycling or for those wanting a little more support. It’s great for families who are used to day rides but who want to keep the daily distances relatively low. The trip is two centre based, so you won’t have to keep changing accommodation along the way. There are plenty of other activities to look out for during the day’s cycle, with places of interest to take a break and keep the children entertained.
