On this trip you will be able to clearly see and even smell the volcanic origin of the islands! The valley of Furnas impresses especially by the many contrasts ... the most beautiful fertile landscapes, lush vegetation and hot, sulphurous springs. Let yourself be carried away in the contrasting landscapes of São Miguel ...

In Furnas you have about 2 hours at leisure - try the typical dish of the region, the "Cozido das Furnas" and / or visit the magnificent Terra Nostra Park with the famous thermal pool

(Admission 8.00 €).

At the end of the tour we visit the tea plantations. In the traditional walls of the tea factory you will taste the local tea and you will learn more about the tea production.

The tour takes place on a small scale and is personally managed by me.

My tours are based on the weather conditions and not on designated stops. Where you do not see anything is not stopped, but I always find an alternative. Your experience comes first. The given times are indicative and are like all weather dependent.

Josef was great! We got an excellent tour of the west part of the island that took into account our interests, the changeable (!!) weather while avoiding the big crowds. We only booked the tour the night before, so were super lucky that he was...More
