About the Experience

The heart of the island of São Miguel is an unforgettable tour! Departure from Ponta Delgada heading to the north coast of the island to visit the city of Ribeira Grande and its surroundings. In Ribeira Seca we will make a short stop at a Renaissance fountain, which bears witness to times past. Arriving at the city center, we will already perceive the baroque architecture of the 17th and 18th century buildings, of which we will visit the most important ones, in a short walk. Before leaving the city, a stop to enjoy a beautiful volcanic sand beach.
Taking now the mountain road we continue to the interior of the island with a visit to Hot Spring of Ribeira Grande, a thermal area surrounded by vegetation. The ride continues to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Portugal - the Lagoa do Fogo. Return descending the mountain towards the south coast seaside to the city of Ponta Delgada.
