Full description
Taking the road that travels along the North coast reach Nordeste, usually referred as the 10th island for its remoteness, and the oldest geological part of São Miguel. Mountains, woods, waterfalls, belvederes that rise over the sea, beautiful villages, and a multitude of flowers mark this area. The local people are warm-hearted and cheerful. It is possible to find genuine handicrafts and delicious gastronomy here which you can see and taste at your stop in Nordeste village. After lunch continue the tour around the east part of the island until you reach the village of Povoação, the place where the first settlers set foot on the island. Finish the day with a stop at Salto do Cavalo belvedere.

We loved the experience, Hugo took us around the island and explained everything very well. Thanks to him we have gotten to know Saõ Miguel super well. He also took us to visit the tea plantations and Ananas' plantations when he saw interest on our part. The food very good and the experience very good. He speaks Spanish very well.

The excursion was a comfortable ride for six people to almost every place of interest that could be visited within eight hours, including a stop at a tea plantation and also for lunch with unlimited glasses of wine being served. The island of Sao Miguel was strikingly beautiful and all of us agreed we want to return.

Roberto our guide tailored our tour to us as we had previously done a Sao Miguel east tour on a previous trip. He realized the weather was optimal and took us up to a lookout on the second highest peak for fantastic vistas. All the guides we have had in the Azores have shown us how proud and respectful they are of their surroundings.
