About the Experience

You can combine the adventure of one of the most beautiful hikes in São Miguel Island with a comfortable van tour to Nordeste all in one experience.

We will leave from Ponta Delgada in the direction of Faial da Terra. It is here that we will start our circular trail Faial da Terra – Salto do Prego, visiting as well a hidden village in the mountain, called Sanguinho. During the hike, it will also be possible to refresh ourselves in the amazing waterfall Salto do Prego, especially during summer.

After this wonderful hike, we will stop in the center of Faial da Terra village to relax and enjoy the old whalers harbor, before we continue for the second half of the day.

The road will take us to various viewpoints on the coastline of Nordeste, a beautiful part of São Miguel Island! We will visit the viewpoints of Ponta do Sossego and Vista dos Barcos.
