Full description
Departing from Ponta Delgada, ride in a 4WD vehicle towards the lush volcanic scenery of São Miguel Island, the largest and most populous island in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores, and often referred to locally as "The Green Island". The first stop along the tour is the Belvedere of Senhora da Paz in Vila Franca do Campo for a superb view over the town and Islet, as well as the Furnas lake and valley. Once in the Furnas volcanic complex, delight in the great volcanic activity around you.
