Start the day with a cycle ride along the volcanic system of Sete Cidadades, whose Green and Blue lakes sparkle in a volcanic crater. Legend has it the lakes were created from the tears of forbidden love between a shepherd and a princess, and our route takes us 15km around the area, mainly through flat and slight hilly landscapes.

After lunch we travel to Ferraria, a unique geological formation on the west coast. Here we find an equipped climbing wall, with varying routes for different levels.
