Description

This half-day tour includes a great mix of cultural and natural places in the west of Terceira island. It's a great complement to the Terceira Island Full-Day Tour to ensure you see the whole island in one and a half days.

Visit the picturesque coastal town of São Mateus, one of the main fishing harbours of the Azores, where the traditional wood boats are still widely used. Learn how the Azorean ceramics are made using ancient manual techniques. Discover Lagoa das Patas, a place where the locals like to go for a picnic in the countryside and some moments of relaxation.

Explore the beautiful northwest coast of the island, with spectacular cliffs and black lava rocks, including a stop at the famous natural pools of Biscoitos, the favourite swimming area of Terceira. Finish the tour with a taste of some of the best cheese made in the island.
