We did two jeep tours with Greenzone (via Picos De Aventura) during our week-long stay in Ponta Delgada. Both times the guides were hugely knowledgable and went out of their way to show us the best sights, despite challenging weather conditions. Going by jeep rather than minibus is definitely the way to see the best of the island, particularly when the mists roll in, as you have a choice of more routes around the hills and volcanoes. The highlights for us were finally seeing the lakes of Sete Cidades (after a very foggy first visit) and Caldeira Velha near Fogo, which looks a bit like a set for Jurassic Park with giant ferns, bubbling ponds and rusty coloured waterfalls.
