This is the best way to discover Terceira Island in one day. Embark with us on a full trip around to the Island in a different way. (mini bus/mini van). We start at 9 am in the city of Angra do Heroísmo, with a visit to Monte Brasil. Then we cross the city towards the East passing by the Pátio da Alfândega, the monument to the bull and the bullring. Continuing along the coast, we head towards Vila de São Sebastião, passing by Ribeirinha, Feteira (serretinha), Porto Judeu (view of the Ilhéu das Cabras) and Baia da Salga. In São Sebastião we visit the oldest church on the island and a small chapel for the devotion of the Holy Spirit that we call Império. We continue towards the city of Praia da Vitória passing by the Serra do Cume viewpoint, Fontinhas, Santa Cruz, until we reach the Serra do Facho viewpoint. After visiting the city, we stop for lunch at a local restaurant. Full menu of typical food from the island, with the main dish being the delicious Alcatra. (beef stew) After the divine lunch we have the only optional of the day. If you wish, we can visit the Algar do Carvão geosite, which is located in the central area of Terceira Island and corresponds to a volcanic chimney 80 m deep. The visit is made on foot using stairs. We head north to visit the small town of Biscoitos to see vineyards and how grapes are produced in the Azores and of course, also the natural pools. Depending on the weather we can give 15 minutes for a dip. From here we start the return to Angra do Heroísmo, along the coast passing by Altares, Raminho, Serreta, Doze Ribeiras, Santa Bárbara, Cinco Ribeiras, São Bartolomeu and São Mateus. Throughout the day, we stop whenever you want to make the experience even more enjoyable. The route may change depending on weather conditions or traffic changes.
