Hike the Fanais Trail with Views of Corvo Island

This route begins in the peaceful village of Ponta Delgada, almost in the middle of nowhere, with only a few curious cows as company. Once we start climbing, you soon realize that this is an unique trail, with an overwhelming view over places like the Albarnaz Lighthouse, Corvo Island, and Monchique Islet. Enjoy the most breathtaking vistas in Portugal on this beautiful hiking trail.

Our guides have great knowledge of local wildlife, the history of Flores Island, and more, and they share this with you along the way.

We provide transportation from the shop to the trail and back. We can always customise the walk depending on your needs and what you want to see.
