Terceira Island Whale Watching and Jeep Tour

2. Terceira Island Whale Watching and Jeep Tour

Observe magnificent whales in their natural habitat before exploring Terceira Island, either in a shared tour or with your own private group. This trip is made more comfortable by traveling in jeeps that are perfect for taking you off the beaten track so you can see the very best of what the island has to offer. This tour is ideal for those who want a bit of island exploration in the most radical way. Routes are taken along secondary roads, which are not part of usual tourist itineraries. They are narrow, beaten paths and used mostly by farmers - you'll get to see the real Terceira. The roads are lined either by blue hydrangeas (hortensia), large trees or rough walls of basaltic stone. They lead to breathtaking views and you should 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.

What people are saying about Terceira

Antonio is kind and knowledgeable, and very flexible to adapt the tour to your wishes. He made us very excited about the island Terceira, and even dispiteful that we didn’t stay longer. Antonio knows a lot of people and even helped us to get in contact with another guide on the island of São Jorge, completely based upon our wishes. We are looking forward to that tour a lot.

We went with Antonio, he was super nice. Were picked up at the accommodation and then went for whale watching. Then we set off with the jeep. We were lucky that there were only two of us, so he responded to what we wanted to see. In between we had a great barbecue.

Nice mellow day. A lot of stops along the way helped us see the entire island from different view points. Very informative and the scenery was beautiful!

Doris was a great guide, we saw a lot of interesting places and we got a lot of information about natural and cultural heritage of Terceira and Azores.

Guides are amazing. They have given us a wonderful trip over water and island! We are very happy with this experience.
