Why choose this experience

If you're looking to get to know the island of São Miguel in just one day and not leave any places of interest behind, this is the right tour for you! Our specialized guides will show you the most emblematic landscapes and the areas most appreciated by locals and tourists, in order to get to know even better the history and culture of this wonderful island.

The route starts towards the Vista do Rei viewpoint, where you can see the famous Lagoa Azul and Lagoa Verde, located in Sete Cidades. Further on, we will pass by the top of the mountains so that you can enjoy the incredible view over Lagoa do Fogo. Afterwards, the destination will be the Caldeira Velha Monument, to enjoy the waters of its waterfall (the entrance fee for this monument is not included in the trip) and from there the trip will continue to the Miradouro de Santa Iria, where you can see all the North Coast.

There is no Azores without tea, and due to this well-known plantation in the area, we will visit the famous Gorreana tea plantation and its factory.
