Brief description: The organization and operation of the HIKING TRAILS will be made not only on marked trails but also on trails near Fajãs with great ecological, scenic and cultural value. We want to focus this type of service for small groups in order to reduce the environmental impact and to value the interaction between clients and guides, while also providing a better customized service and enhancing the environmental and cultural interpretation. The trails guarantee our participants the observation of wonderful landscapes where, among other features, we highlight the various Fajãs, waterfalls, the ocean and a whole set of details related to the natural and cultural heritage that the island of São Jorge has to offer. At the same time we will try to involve the clients in genuine experiences with strong local influence, seeking to establish an interaction with the local population and it's culture, for example through it's gastronomy (e.g. coffee, vineyards, cheese).
