About the Experience

Important: Minimum of two people to carry out the excursion.

This circuit takes us on a gastronomic journey through Terceira Island.
Departure in the morning from Angra do Heroísmo towards São Mateus da Calheta. This is the largest fishing village on the island and here we can visit the Fish Lota, a whaling museum and sample local fish and seafood.

We continue to the parish of Cinco Ribeiras where we stop at a local cheese factory, Queijo Vaquinha. In the factory we can taste various cheeses and bread typical of the Azores.

Continuing along the coast, we go to Serreta parish, where we stop for a typical lunch. In this restaurant we will eat the most famous dish on Terceira Island, Alcatra. As well as sausage, black pudding, fried pork, liver baits, sweet potatoes and corn cakes. Everything done as our ancestors did.

After lunch, there's nothing better than heading north and visiting the Biscoitos winery landscape with the possibility of stopping at a local winery to taste local wines and liqueurs.

With a full belly, you still need to taste the freshness of the Quinta dos Açores ice creams with the possibility of seeing the factory.

Unfortunately the tour has to end and ends with a visit to the AzorBus store with a "Digestive"
