ProductID: 1194

Type: Full Day Tour Private

Country: Portugal

Theme: Private Shore and Chauffeur Guided Excursions

Region: Azores Islands

Group Size: 1 - 6 People

Start City: Ponta Delgada

Duration: 1 Day (Duration: 08h00 approx.)

Largest place in the Azores and capital of São Miguel since 1522, Ponta Delgada is a flat town that stretches along a bay on the island´s south coast. Boasting many impressive churches, convents and majestic white houses, visitors are constantly reminded of its wealthy and illustrious past, when the port was a crucial staging post between Europe and the New World during the Age of Discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Ponta Delgada is a good base from which to make day tours of the volcanic crater lakes and thermal springs in the centre of the island. A short drive north-west of the city is the spectacular setting of Caldeira das Sete Cidades, an extinct volcano which holds two adjoining lakes, one emerald-green and the other sapphire-blue.


Day by Day Itinerary:
1 Day (Duration: 08h00 approx.)

DAY 1:
- Departure from the Hotel at 9:30 AM to Ribeira Grande, the second city of S. Miguel located in the North coast of the island.
- Visit the main monuments such as the Nossa Senhora da Estrela church* (*Closed on week-ends.) and the Ethnographic Museum.
- The tour continues with a visit to the Ribeira Grande hot springs with lunch at the Lagoa do Fogo restaurant on the northern route to Pico da Barrosa.
- After lunch, the tour will continue on with a stop to view the Lagoa do Fogo, a lake located in the bottom of an extinct volcano with white sand beaches and very clear waters.
- This lake is part of a Nature Reserve.
- The tour will then continue down the mountain range towards Lagoa on the South coast.
- On the route you will be able to see both the northern and southern coasts as well as the Sete Cidades mountain range.
- There will be one more stop in Lagoa to visit the Fábrica de Cerâmica where handicraft ceramics are made.
- Return to the Hotel at 5.30 PM
