Along the way, take in many other picturesque spots of São Miguel, including the peaceful lakes of Lagoa das Empadadas, Lagoa de Santiago, and Lagoa do Carvão.  Enjoy stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, volcanic cones, and stretches of green, and go to villages that have played a vital role in the story of the island.

Amazing half-day tour when you have a long layover. It was fairly foggy at first up in the mountains but they started to fade as the day kept going. Rodrigo was an amazing guide that translated between English & Portuguese, and was incredibly informative of the sites we saw. Highly Recommend!

Felipe has been our guide and he has been a real wonder. If it is the first time you come to the Azores islands I recommend it 100%. I treat 10, tour 10, the landscapes are a paradise... We stopped at a viewpoint, there was a food stall and it was great.

Awesome guide and fun ride! Highly recommended from our side! Thank you so much for the nice tour and all the beautiful places we went
