Terceira Island: 4x4 Land Rover Tour with Traditional Lunch

1. Terceira Island: 4x4 Land Rover Tour with Traditional Lunch

You no longer have to go to Africa to go on a safari. It is also possible in the Azores to experience moments of pure adrenaline in all-terrain four-wheel drive vehicle. Fasten your seat belt, and the adventure through the landscape of the island will begin. Routes on secondary roads, which are not part of the usual tourist itineraries, will be favored. They are narrow, beaten paths and mostly used by farmers. They are lined either by blue hydrangeas (Hortenses), large trees or rough walls of basaltic stone, which cut the green pastures leading to breathtaking views. Take the time to stop along the way, step out of the jeep and take a closer look at all the magical nature that surrounds you. Have an adventure through the interior of the island with breathtaking views and difficult-to-access roads with unique flora. Have the option of off-roading, and help release the Land Rovers out of the mud. An outdoor lunch (traditional food, Portuguese wine) is included, and tour continues with a visit to lagoons. You can also be taken to visit the volcanic caves if you wish.

What people are saying about Terceira

The tour was great, Tania gave us so much information about the island, showed us really nice spots and viewpoints. We had a really nice time, shared nice conversations and a wonderful local meal. (It is a group tour but we were the only ones there that day, so it was actually a private tour for us and Tania made it perfect). Thank you Tania and TurriAzores !

This was the perfect way to get to know Terceira in little time. The tour covers all major points. We were a little group of 7 people in a mini bus. Our guide Tania was outstanding. She shared a wealth of knowledge about the island's history, nature and sightseeing spots. Thank you Tania and TuriAzores!
