São Miguel East: Full-Day Van Tour with Lunch

1. São Miguel East: Full-Day Van Tour with Lunch

Explore the highlights of the western half of São Miguel island on a guided tour by van. Discover the hot springs at Furnas, the waterfall at Ribeira dos Caldeirões, as well as the remote rugged beauty of the Nordeste region. Enjoy the beautiful scenery along the northern coast of the island until you get to the Santa Iria Lookout, with a spectacular, ample view of the north coast in both directions, before continuing to Furnas. Find yourself in Furnas and admire a spectacular panoramic stop to gaze over the lake and town. Descend where you will be given the choice of visiting the geothermal fields and tasting the sparkling waters, or bathing in the hot springs, for an additional fee. Next, discover a traditional way of cooking as your lunch of cozido (stew) is pulled from the warm volcanic soil. In the afternoon, continue the journey eastward, with a stop at the charming waterfall of Ribeira dos Caldeirões.  Explore Nordeste, the most unexplored and rural part of the island. Visit two amazing lookouts over the high cliffs that characterize the East coast of São Miguel, before returning to Ponta Delgada.

What people are saying about Vila Franca do Campo

We went on the east tour with Joao, he was super patient with us while struggling to find the meeting point. The tour consisted of very nice places worth visiting, the nature was beautiful and Joao is very knowleadgeable and made the tour a real experience. The food (cozido) was also beyond our expectations. All in all the tour is a real must-do, we are very happy to have taken part in it. Joao was our best guide ever, thank you Joao!

Had a wonderful time with our guide, João. He was super informative and entertaining! Definitely recommend this tour company - we got to see so much from the van and also walk around at different stops to see the hot springs and lakes. We also tried some of the different waters and local alcohol and food :) Thanks from the USA - Elizabeth, Joe and Stephanie

Joao was a wonderful guide. He loves to socialize with the tourist (help take pictures, answer questions, talk about his life, etc.) and very knowledgable about his home. The tour itself was lovely with a bunch of good view points and photo opportunities.

It was an awesome experience. Our guide was helpful and shared a lot of knowledge! We had enough time for pictures everywhere we stopped. The food was amazing!

I really recommend this tour. I believe it’s a lifetime experience. I’m so impressed that i promised to myself to go back as soon as possible.
