This package is the most complete option to visit Terceira island!
On the first day we will do a full day tour around the island. It starts at 9 am and we will pass through the south, east, center and north of Terceira island.
We will have the opportunity to see Impérios, centuries-old churches, bays full of history, the biggest islets in the Azores and even a patchwork… well, let’s say it’s a crater but you will agree with us!
We will stop at a local restaurant for lunch, suggesting traditional island food!
Our afternoon includes a visit to one of the only two volcanoes that can be visited in the world – Algar do Carvão -, a visit to a fumarolic field in a dormant volcano, a visit to the Biscoitos wine area, a wine+liqueurs+homemade jams tasting still in the north of the island, and ends with a cheese + yoghurt tasting at a local cheese factory on our way back to the accommodation place.
The second day will start with the Mistérios Negros walking trail at 9 am with an average duration of 2 ½ hours in the center of the island. As the name suggests, this mysterious hike feels magical to one’s spirit. Hike through quiet forests, between black young volcanic domes, and across fields dressed in shades of green! (We are flexible so, if necessary, it is possible to choose another trail).
After the trail we go to Lagoa das Patas, where we will have a picnic, time for a peacefull break in the heart of the Azorean nature.
After lunch we leave the center of the island and make a complementary half-day tour of the previous day. We will pass through the southwest and west side, ending again in the north, but this time to visit the Natural Pools.
Our afternoon includes a visit to the Whale Museum and fishing port, observation of the making-of a handmade piece of clay in a pottery shop and stop at a viewpoint to observe three other islands of the central group. As previously mentioned, we finish with the visit to the natural pools of Biscoitos, and then, return to the place of accommodation.
