The Shelters are old barns that have been rebuilt using traditional methods and ecological materials.


They all have:

  • 4 single beds and 1 double bed

  • Hot shower with solar energy or wood water heater

  • Composting toilet

  • Drinkable tap water

  • A kettle, herbs for tea and sugar

  • Plates, Cups and Cutlery

  • 12 volts electricity (Photovoltaic panel) with a USB plug to charge mobile phones and cameras

  • Wood stove for winter time

  • Barbecue and an outdoor gas burner

  • Reed bed treatment systems (plants) for water treatment, so please bring natural shower products


The Shelters are not equipped with a kitchen. Along the trail, you can stop at restaurants for lunch or buy food in the grocery shops (See Map). You can also order dinner made of traditional Portuguese and Azorean meals as well as the breakfast.
