ProductID: 1201

Type: Half Day Tour Private

Country: Portugal

Theme: Private Shore and Chauffeur Guided Excursions

Region: Azores Islands

Group Size: 1 - 6 People

Start City: Terceira Island

Duration: 1/2 Day (Duration: 03h30 approx.)

Nestling midway along Terceira Island´s southern shoreline, the charming city of Angra do Heroísmo is one of the jewels in the Azores crown.

Airy and cosmopolitan, it was deservedly declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983 in recognition of the strategic role the mid-Atlantic port has played over the centuries.

Dominating the cityscape, Angra´s 16th century Sé cathedral features an interesting interior of exotic carved wood, engraved silver and rare treasures.

In the centre of the island, a short drive north of Angra do Heroísmo, Terceira´s volcanic origins can be seen in the form of a 3-kilometre-wide crater (the largest in the Azores) called the Caldeira de Guilherme Moniz. Also worth seeing nearby are the Algar do Carvão (an enormous subterranean cave) and the hot steaming geysers of Furnas do Enxofre.


Day by Day Itinerary:
1/2 Day (Duration: 03h30 approx.)

DAY 1:
- Departure from the Hotel at 09:30 AM or 02:30 PM towards Monte Brasil, protected area.
- Stop at Pico das Cruzinhas, with magnificent view over Angra do Heroísmo, classified by UNESCO as Historical Universal Patrimony.
- The tour continues to S. Mateus, Porto dos Cinco and from there to Pico da Bagacina, interesting lava region, where wild cattle are bred.
- The next stop will be at Algar do Carvão * (* Only open between June 1st and September 30th Optional visit.), considered a geological nature reserve, formed by caves with 100 metres deep, with curious geological formations and a lake.
- Continuing to Biscoitos to visit the Wine Museum and for a short walk on the natural swimming pools area.
- Return to the Hotel at 13:00 PM or 06:30 PM.
