We created this tour exclusively to offer you the rare opportunity of visiting the most iconic and historical areas of São Miguel Island so you can appreciate our nature and culture on your short trip. We’ll start our journey towards Vista do Rei viewpoint where you’ll be dazzled by the landscape of two exceptional lakes- Lagoa Azul and Lagoa Verde- located in Sete Cidades. Then, we will take you to the mountains to enjoy the fullness of the scenic view over Lagoa do Fogo. Our trip goes on towards a charming viewpoint – Santa Iria – where you can notice every detail of the silhouette of our north coast.
Soon, it will be teatime! Therefore, we will visit Gorreana tea plantation and its factory. Here you can taste black and green tea both composed of plants harvested with love from our land. Continuing the route, we’ll arrive to Furnas Valley so that you can experience the sensations of this majestic place from Pico do Ferro’s viewpoint. Arriving to the village of Furnas you will watch some powerful volcanic phenomena, known as fumaroles. Taking benefit of timing and location, for lunch we will have the traditional Furnas Stew, a typical dish from São Miguel, cooked underground by the warmth of our mother nature.
After this flavor explosion, we will stop at Furnas Lake to learn the patient cooking process of Furnas stew while taking a walk near the peaceful lake. Returning to Ponta Delgada by the south coast and stopping on Vila Franca do Campo, the first capital of São Miguel, you will feel an inexplicable state of peace and reflection due to the harmony of the landscape over the Vila Franca Islet with the heavenly chapel.
