São Miguel is the largest and most popular island in the Azores archipelago. With an impressive landscape of volcanic peaks submerged in forests, blue lakes, and calderas, this island offers a huge variety of activities. Sete Cidades, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal, showcases the Green and Blue Lakes, which according to legend, were formed from the tears of a shepherd and a princess who shared a forbidden love. Boca do Inferno, a viewpoint with impressive views is probably one of the best places on São Miguel to see how volcanic activity has shaped the island. Inside the crater of an extinct volcano, lies the stunning Lagoa do Fogo, a lake part of a nature reserve. One of the biggest attractions of the island is Caldeira Velha, a group of natural hot spring in the middle of the dense rainforest, that has its own waterfall. The historical center of Ponta Delgada, the capital of the Azores, has a lot of fascinating museums and churches to visit.
