Description

This tour is the ideal choice if you wish to see the highlights of Terceira, but also drive on the beautiful, peaceful gravel roads of the inner island, away from the crowds and surrounded by green pastures and vegetation. With a maximum of only 6 people in the tour (often less), this tour provides a personal and relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of interaction with the tour guide, a local expert in Terceira’s natural environment.

After being picked up in your accommodation in Terceira, make a first stop in Monte Brasil, the famous volcano-peninsula that overlooks Angra bay, that provides a perfect setting for an introduction to the history of Angra and the Azores in general.

Head to the mountains at the hearth of the island and start discovering the quiet Azorean landscape, dominated by pastures, cows, flowers and bushes. Enjoy a breathtaking view from Serra do Cume, a mandatory stop in Terceira, over a grid of black stonewalls that divide the green fields into small rectangular patches. Continue deeper into the island’s untouched nature, where native plants still flourish and learn about their curious uses given by the first settlers of the Azores.

Enjoy a plentiful meal of traditional food in one of the best restaurants in Terceira, in a cosy and friendly environment. You can take the opportunity to taste an authentically cooked “Alcatra”, the famous local beef stew. Fish and vegetarian options are also available. Drinks (wine, beer, etc) and dessert are included.

In the afternoon, explore the beautiful coastline of the island, including the natural lava pools of Biscoitos. Reach the westernmost coast of the island where impressive cliffs provide amazing views over the Atlantic ocean, including sights of other nearby islands, if the weather allows. This is also the area of the island where wine production is more prevalent and there will be time to visit some old vineyards that labour in the unique Terceira way.
