About
The Lagoa do Vento is a river basin formed by the water which fall from the top of the cliff, coming from the Ribeira do Lajeado and moving towards the waterfall (or cascade) of Risco. This tour begins in Porto Moniz at 09:00. We go to Rabaçal and we start Vereda da Lagoa do Vento, in a two-hour walk and we arrived at Wind Lagoon and Waterfalls. The existence of several water streams, derived from small branches of the main creeks of the area, demands the walker to be the extremely careful during its crossing. However, as it is a transitional area between the heath and the Laurel Forest, classified as Natural World Heritage by UNESCO since December 1999. When we finish the walk we stop to have lunch in Rabaçal. In the afternoon, we go down the off road to Estrela da Calhea and Prazeres village, following to Ponta de Pargo Light House. We later visit the amazing viewpoint called the Garganta Funda Viewpoint. Then we go offroad to Capela da Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte - Cabo

Immersive and impressive trip
Aug. 2021 • Family
The tour started in the city of Porto Moniz under light rain, in a portugese 4WD car. We stopped several times in the way to the Levada so we could enjoy the views, plants and cows 🙂. The Levada hike to the waterfall was pretty easy, however slippery due to the light rain. Some parts (to and from the waterfall) were quite steep but well secured. The waterfall is very impressive, swimming would have been nice with better weather so you can dry quickly. The lunch at the restaurant was, ironically, one of the best we had in Porto Moniz so far. After this 3 hour hike (kids aged 10 and 13 enjoyed it too) we continued the tour under a nice blue sky with plenty of warm sun. So the roof of the car was removed, allowing to stand up and enjoy the surroundings even better. Rum factory was interesting, the rum itself okay. More impressive was the lighttower, separating south and north of the island - grey and cloudy in the north, bright and sunny in the south. We ended up with a little off-road experience through the nature along the coast. All in all a very nice and immersive experience! Also, thanks to Victor, our very friendly guide, we learned a lot about this part of the island. All in all, one of the best days so far on the island!
