Full description

Travel from Ponta Delgada to one of Sao Miguel’s northern coast’s highlights: The Ribeira dos Caldeirões natural park, where waterfalls and windmills nestle amongst the lush vegetation. From here, you’ll continue on to Nordeste village, known for its beautiful gardens and well-preserved streets. From here you’ll travel along the North-East side of the island, taking in the views over colorful gardens and the sea from Ponta do Arnel, Ponta do Sossego and Ponta da Madrugada. Your next stop will be Povoação Village, situated in the most South-Eastern part of the island. Povoação means settlement in Portuguese, and was where the first Portuguese navigators arrived on the island. A picnic for lunch will be served, before traveling along the Alameda de Plátanos Visconde Botelho, a large avenue surrounded by Plátanus trees. Off-roading over streams, you’ll drive to Salto do Cavolo to the Graminhais plateau for views of both Furnas and Povoação villages. From here you’ll return to Ponta Delgada along the North coast of the island.

An amazing tour I loved everything I've seen. In winter very few people, ideal for the tour with peace of mind and without crowds. The tour had him hired in English (because there was no option in Spanish) but since we were just a couple from Madrid and I, the guide very kindly adapted and although he never does tours in Spanish he was perfectly understood. We were delighted with Rida!

El Guia hablaba mal los idiomas español e inglés. La comida mi fue bueno y mi lenta. El camión hacia mucho ruido.
