What to Expect
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. Admire the fountains of mineral water flowing from lava wells and bubbling up in various temperatures and flavors, making this one of the richest hydrological regions of Europe and the Caldeiras.
Pass by a tea factory on the way back to Ponta Delgada, where you can stop to enjoy a comforting cup of tea. Afterwards, enjoy one last stunning view over the coast at Belvedere of Santa Iria.
