What to Expect
Travel around São Miguel Island in a 4WD vehicle as you explore the wild lakes and natural wonders of the area on a 3-hour tour. Visit the volcanic cones adjacent to the main volcano, where there are hidden lakes surrounded by wild lush vegetation.
You will see Monte Escuro, towering at 2,946 feet (898 meters) and covered by the endemic Macaronesian flora. You will also travel to Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande, a small fumaroles complex.
Although the tour is in a 4WD vehicle, to truly experience the best scenery, it may be necessary to talk short walks along steep terrain. For this reason, take care to bring hiking boots and walking sticks if needed.
