Relax for the rest of the day and get ready for the 2 day tours to follow! A walk around the city is a nice way to spend the afternoon. Ponta Delgada is a lovely town with a beautiful sea front, pretty architecture and botanical gardens to visit. In case you arrive in the morning and wish to get active right away, you can also add an afternoon activity to this package.
Explore the West side of São Miguel island! In the morning, start with Sete Cidades, one of the most iconic places in the Azores. The views from Miradouro do Canario and King's View will take your breath away! See also Mosteiros on the west coast. Enjoy a filling lunch of traditional Azorean food. In the afternoon, discover Fogo Lake a pristine, very well-preserved crater lake, that many locals consider the most beautiful of the island. Visit also Caldeira Velha, the pineapple plantations and the north coast near Ribeira Grande, including some gorgeous cliffs and a famous surf beach.
In the morning start with a stop in the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Paz, to enjoy an amazing view over the town of Vila Franca do Campo. Continue going East to Furnas, the main area of the Azores to see volcanic activity. Be amazed by the steam vents and boiling mud pools. Take a relaxing thermal bath if you wish (optional, entrance to pools not included). Enjoy for lunch the famous cozido stew cooked for 6 hours in warm volcanic soil. In the afternoon see a spectacular view over the entire Furnas town, see the waterfall of Ribeira dos Caldeirões and take an instructive tour of the tea plantations of the island.
Get picked up at your accommodation and transferred to the airport. Then it's time to say goodbye!
